Disappointing news that the planned’s lift-out for Saturday 25th has been postponed due to high winds which are forecast.
The Met Office is currently forecasting an average windspeed of 21mph at 9am in the morning, strengthening to 24mph by 3pm, with gusts of 40-44mph throughout the day.
The next available date for lift out will be Saturday 1st November. Note that with the clock change on Sunday 26th, we will need to alter our start and finish times to maximise the operation in the daylight. Accordingly, members will be expected at the yard at 6:45am Saturday 1st November. Please check that your insurance is still in force on this date.
Are the nights really drawing in? It’s that time of year again for applications for winter berthing on the pontoons to be made. Here is the invitation from Edinburgh Marina Ltd and an application form.
Tuesday at 09:36 UTC was the Lowest Astronomical Tide – also known as chart datum, as you all know. And if you don’t, perhaps you should consider enrolling here! So, quite a bit of the harbour which never usually uncovers was, well… uncovered! Here, for the greater good of the mariners of Granton is a gallery showing what’s under your keel when you come floating into the pontoon.
At the FCYC Council on August 11th, the date for lift out was set as Saturday 25 October 2014.
