Status: We are Working on it. 

Officer Responsible: Opportunities Officer


Shed to house renovations and improvements.



The uni boat shed is looking tired and worn down. It has not been looked after as best as it could be, such as flaking paint, and signs that are out of date, lack of general safety information. An example is lack of vhf radios for shared club use for communication with rail and harbour master. The safety information is out of date and this poses is understanding in case of emergency.

There is equipment being stored in the boat house which is irrelevant to the clubs that use it such as boxing pads and rugby pads.

The fuse box is temperamental and sparks when it trip, causing potential fire hazard. Access to the beach is limited by brambles which have impeded safe access to the beach to launch craft.

This list goes on. What needs to happen is a consultation with the clubs which use it and then it renovated into a building to be proud of.
