Slaughden Creek Rules
The creek at Slaughden Sailing Club is only suitable for boats that have a shallow draft. For example, a vessel that draws 18 inches can access the creek for circa 90 minutes each side of High Tide.
It is the boat owners responsibility to establish whether the creek is suitable for their boat type. Mooring in the creek is at owners risk.
For 2020 the club are trialling the hire of the creek for short term berthing. It is not guaranteed that this facility will be available in 2021 but will be subject to further discussion depending upon the results of the trial. The below rules can be amended from time to time by the Membership Secretary as appropriate.
Creek enquiries should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
