Car Parking

 

There is ample car parking outside the club, and should the instance arise we can also use the Sea Cadets next door. The car park is directly outside the club house on a quiet road on the marina.  It is a pleasant area for us to be situated, but as in any public car park, cars are left at the owners own risk, so please make sure that all valuables are out of sight. A parking permit can be obtained from behind the bar for free.
