IMPORTANT COVID 19 - Latest (updated 17th September 2020)

 

International Visitors

If you are an international visitor arriving from outside the United Kingdom  (UK), please ensure you have completed the Passenger Locator Form before arriving in the UK and can provide evidence of this to UK Border Control officers if requested. Visitors who arrive from a country that is not on the Travel Corridor List (or have travelled via a country that is on that list) must Self-Islolate for 14 days.

 

Lymington Harbour Commissioners have no moorings suitable for self isolating so can only accept visiting boats where:- (1) a Passenger Locator Form has been completed; (2) all members of the crew have already completed 14 days of quarantine in the UK; and (3) you have telephoned to make an advance booking. If you are a foreign vessel, please contact us prior to arriving.

 

Visitor Berths (availability)

Up to Sunday 18th October 2020 - Restricted availability for short stay and overnight visits on our Town Quay and Dan Bran visitor pontoons. Berths must be booked in advance through the Harbour Office on 01590 672014 or Channel 66. Please do not arrive without a booking as it unlikely that we will be able to accommodate you.


From Monday 19th October - Due to winter dredging arrangements, the Town Quay pontoon will have a limited number of walks ashore rafting berths available on a first come first served basis. Berths will not be bookable in advance. The Dan Bran pontoon will be closed.

Visitor Berths (rafting)

Due to the layout and capacity of our pontoons, if booked on an alongside berth it may be necessary to raft unless you are booked on a finger berth. In the case of rallies, it is very likely that rafting will be required. All bookings for pontoon berths (except for finger berths) are taken on the basis that the customer accepts that rafting may be required and that the owner/skipper of the visiting boat is responsible for ensuring that crew members follow the safe rafting protocol which can be downloaded using the relevant link below
