Summer Season ending

Just another reminder that the Summer Season ends on Tuesday 31st October.  All boats not staying with us for the Winter should be gone by then – any problems email admin@pnyc.co.uk .  And may I ask that anyone who already knows that they DO WANT or DO NOT WANT the same Summer Mooring next week let me know by email as this does help with managing the waiting lists.

While most of Europe have had the hottest summer on record, we’ve have the worst July and August that I can remember, including the wettest July on record. At least the season has ended with some sun!  I apologise about the lack of any recent newsletters – writer’s block.  But a lot has been happening…..

Firstly Melissa and Sarah have gone through the Spring and Summer and are now entering the next Autumnal season. It has been fabulous having them, were feel very lucky and we have had so much great feedback. Ant and I are so pleased that they are with us and Melissa and Sarah have been really grateful for the fabulous support that they have received from our PN community and summer guests. Please continue to support them during the Autumn and Winter….

The new roof has been on for a few months now and only lacks a gutter. Just trying to sort out cheaper transport for this as the price quoted is £300 for a £600 gutter which seems a bit pricey. 

The new outside space has taken rather longer than expected but it is really taking shape. It will definitely be ready for next year (!) and I am hoping that it will be finished by this October, just in time for some autumnal showers.  We need to resurface the floor, sort out the steps and add bar stools. Johnny Vyvyan is seen here just testing a pint on what will be the bar. It held!

We have also had to dig up a bit of the carpark to put in a vent on our waste treatment plant due to some unpleasant smells emerging up the line in The Old Kiln. It should have been fitted with a vent in the first place but the guy who fitted it was one of worst people I have ever had to deal with.

We are thinking of doing an end of season race just before you put your fine vessels are put to bed for the Winter. The proposed date would be Saturday 21st of October – Trafalgar Day – provided we have enough takers. So would you let me know if you would like to enter a boat for the race – admin@pnyc.co.uk  If we have sufficient numbers, we would book out the bar and restaurant and have a set menu for the event plus a little nautical quiz – note, it will be Trafalgar Day so this might be included in the quiz. The evening meal and quiz would go ahead even if weather forced us to cancel the race. If you are interested in racing a boat email admin@pnyc.co.uk

Tuesday 31st October is the end of the Summer Season and your boat should be gone from its mooring by then unless you are staying for The Winter.  If you envisage any delays, please just email me in advance and we can sort something out. There will be the inevitable Cornish Cross Over as boats leave on 31st October and arrive on 1st November for The Winter but please bear with us for 10 days as we sort everything out. 

If you WANT A WINTER BERTH, do let me know if you haven’t already.  We offer very competitive rates with storage and you can use and work on your boats during the Winter Season – 1st November 2023 to 31st March 2024.  Pontoon is £35 a foot with no minimum length.  Trot, Swing and Beach moorings are £21.50 per foot.  

If you know you DON’T WANT YOUR SUMMER MOORING FOR NEXT YEAR, I would be very grateful if you could let me know asap as we have a waiting list for all types of moorings.
