Trailer Parking & Storage

Coach/Support boat trailers MUST NOT be parked in the Club carpark. Please do not drive into the Club's car park and park across 3-4 parking spaces.  During regattas, provision is made to store road trailers in a cordoned section of Laughlin Park directly across the road from the Club. Trailers may be left here, at owners own risk, for the duration of the regatta.
