Launch Service

Members are taken to and from their yachts throughout the season by two launches that are for the use of our members and their guests. The launch service is free to our members and their guests. Visiting yachtsmen are also welcome to use this service and will be charged per trip.

The launches run from a floating pontoon from which dinghies can also be launched at all states of the tide. Fresh drinking water is also available from a standpipe on the end of the pontoon.

A second mooring pontoon is being installed in Ray Channel, only about 200 meters from the landing jetty. This will provide welcome additional moorings for the benefit of both members and visitors, subject to availability at the time of your arrival.

The operating hours of the Club’s well acclaimed launch service have also been extended.  From April 30th to September 30th the launch service will now operate until 2300 hrs on Fridays and Saturdays and 2100 hrs on Sundays! This means that you can now fully enjoy your visit by boat to West Mersea and the WMYC and relax in the evening in the Club to enjoy the new chef’s menu and socialise in the bar without having to worry about how you will get back to your boat. The Club’s launch will take you within the hours specified above.

Launch service times for 2017 are downloadable below.
