New Pontoon set for September

Good news!  The GC is now ready to press ahead with the installation of a new pontoon and has placed an order with Docking Solutions. The pontoon has a 6 – 8 weeks lead time and as such we are looking to have it installed in September, including driving the two new piles.

The new structure will consist of a 34-meter walkway that will be joined to a bridge that is 17 meters long and will sit on a floating hammer head.

The hammer head will be 10 meters further north than the old pontoon which will enable it to float at most stages of tide. The barrier alongside the walkway and the bridge are 175 cm high which will enable the structure to be very safe.

The walkways and bridge at 1.5 m wide which will allow ease of movement for trollies up and down.

We are looking to keep disruption to a minimum, and will keep you informed as the project progresses.

This has been a big project for our Club, and only possible through contribution of time and talents by members and staff, to whom I offer my grateful thanks. We really need this pontoon, and I am delighted that we are now able to press ahead with it.
