Moorings


South Harbour

Blyth is one of the few ports on the North East Coast which yachts can enter safely at any state of the tide and all but the worst on-shore weather.

There are approximately 75 pontoon berths and a further 20 fore and aft moorings. Visitors berth on the north side of the most northerly pontoon. The club may be able to accommodate visiting yachts for short periods over the summer months, while mooring holders are away cruising.

Moorings and berths are allocated on a points system based on years of membership and the availability of suitable sized spaces. A scale of charges is published annually. Applications for yachts on the register of members yachts should be made on this application form, and received by 31 January of the year in question.

The moorings for 2013 are now allocated, see the 2013 Mooring Allocations (PDF file) (updated 21st Feb).

RNYC also controls its own boatyard, which provides under-cover and outside storage space for yachts during the winter months, with a workshop and spar storage shed. Yachts are launched and recovered with the Club's 20 ton Wise Hoist, and there is a 1.5 ton electric hoist suitable for launching suitably sized boats at any time.
