MEMBERS of the Burnham Motor Boat and Sailing Club will be hoping for high tides and strong winds following the annual crane-in which marks the start of the season.

On Wednesday two huge mobile cranes lifted the yachts from the sailing club compound, over the riverside footpath, to the banks of the River Brue, and the sailing club pontoons.

There 24 boats moved into the water in an operation that took the club in South Esplanade more than six hours to complete.

 

 

A spokesperson for the club said: “All went well on the day, the weather was kind to us, and all boats were launched on time.

“A big thank you to all that made this possible on the day.

“Now we are all back on the water it’s time to have a few shake down sails to ensure everything is working and then perhaps plan our first cruise of the year.”
