Yarmouth Harbour Reconfiguration Proposals

Not sure if everyoe is aware, but there are plans to change Yarmouth Harbour (IOW).

It will mean there be far more "walk-ashore" pontoons, but less space for RIBS to tie up against the wall (er.. Like NO space!).

For more information check here...

http://www.yarmouth-harbour.co.uk/news.php

It's likely the fees for visiting the harbour will increase as everyone will need to go "through" the harbour office, rather than simply tying up along the harbour wall.

What are you views?

When we all went to Yarmouth recently on the Searider Cruise the wall was under reconstruction, so we had to tie up in the marina on the pontoons.

It was obviously a little further to walk, but you do get access to all the facilities, and I did feel a little happier leaving all the electronics on show.

Not sure it's something I'm against really.

I read these and noted from the text ;

Elements that will NOT be affected by the Inner Harbour Reconfiguration Proposals:
 The Sandhard Pontoon will remain as it is currently.
 The Town Quay wall visitor berths current berths will remain.
 Wightlink ferry operations remain unchanged.
 The public slipway/emergency ferry landing will be unchanged.
 Outer harbour buoy/swinging moorings will remain in place.
 River Yar berthing remains unchanged.
 Resident berth holder numbers will remain unchanged.
 Visitor berth capacity remains unchanged.

So I reckon the quay wall will stay as is for Ribs .....................

I'm all in favour or more walk ashore berths - its just more usable & you dont have to climb a 10ft ladder which is off putting for new ribbers !

Unless their plans change, the quay wall option for mooring definitely WON'T stay.

They had a public showing of the plans for the last couple of days and had guys there to talk through the changes. They definitely don't want people to continue tying up along the quay wall, they wan't to keep that as a clear channel up to the slipway.

Talking of slipways, they are also going to remove the 2nd, less used slipway right next to the Harbour Office.

Hmm - just cant see it happening that way personally- no matter what they say no - the slip is not hugely used & given the option of putting 10+ RIBS against the wall on a nice Summer weekend, or 'keeping' the slip clear- its a no brainer surely ????( hopefully! )

Can you really see RIBs on the walkashore pontoons mid summer .......... I felt like a poor relation in the past.......

Maybe a call to the harbour is needed !

There is a feedback form on the site link I gave, and they are welcoming all feedback (apparently!).

Never liked the Sea wall and prefer the walk ashore pontoons, even if it costs me more.

It's part of the old school fun of going to Yarmouth for lunch

I know where you are coming from.

It's not so bad now the kids are older but it was a little worrying when they were younger, especially at low tide.

i'm all for it, don't get me wrong, i don't like paying for anything, but when you got a bright yellow rib with teak decks it's little hard not to slant towards a proper berth when you get some idiot with black rubber soles dancing all over your'e boat
