Barry Yacht Club

Barry Yacht Club

Marina in Vale of Glamorgan
Moorings at Barry Yacht Club Each year, Barry Dock Master delegates the authority to allocate mooring berths in the western sector of the Pierhead Harbour to BYC members. Trot moorings extend along the western sea wall. These start from directly in front of the clubhouse for small shallow draft boats and continue all the way out to near the harbour entrance for larger craft. Closer in shore, below the mole separating the Lady Windsor lock from the outer harbour, there is more space for club moorings, most of which dry to a soft mud but are still suitable for fin-keel yachts. Further seaward lie some commercial moorings, now managed by Barry Yacht Club. The Club currently has a number of drying moorings available, suitable for boats up to 10 m. Most moorings within the harbour dry to soft mud, with access from at least 3 hours before to 3 hours after high water. Arrangements can be made with the Moorings Officer for boats to be left at Barry. Whilst there are no designated visitors moorings at present, many club members will accommodate visitors mooring alongside. However, visitors must seek permission first and mustn’t leave their boats unattended overnight.

The Estuary The Burry inlet should be treated with caution in rough weather, at night or within 2 hours of HW. The sand shifts and charts should not be relied on.

The shallow water extends from approximately N 51 38.05 W 004 19.10 to the northern shore. The Approach Channel (300metres outside gate) The approach is marked by 2 red and 3 green buoys (lit at night), but care must be taken after rough weather as these may have been dragged or lost. The line of the channel can move significantly, with part sometimes broadside to the waves and entered from the east. The depth is variable and often much shallower than the depth over the sill. If in doubt, approach near HW and not on the lowest of neap tides. The Marina The marina gate is controlled by lights (group of three vertical). 3 red or indeed any red showing means that the gate is up and should not be approached. Two greens vertically over a white indicate that the gate is down and two-way traffic is in operation. Boats leaving the marina should give way. The depth over the sill at the gate is at least 2.5metres but it is advisable to check with the marina office before entering. Burry Port is marked by a lighthouse on the western protective breakwater (N 51 0.62 W 0004 15.05). Its characteristics are Fl 5s 6.5NM.
