Tom Crossley editor of NBW said to me today in an email:- “I am a marina moorer. I go cruising twice a year and I would like to use the visitor mooring, being a visitor, but I can’t as they are all full.”
The trouble is there are thousands of marina moorers who only go cruising a couple of times a year and they all chose August to set of on their ‘great adventure’, but they are too stupid to see this to be a problem. Of course they cant find a mooring. Understand this Tom there are plenty of empty visitor moorings, but you have to stop in the middle of the day. It is no use turning up at 7 or 8 and complaining you cant find a space. It’s like travelling on a train in rush hour and complaining you cant sit down. Would you like me to draw you pictures!
I do most of my cruising between October and March. I don’t have a problem with visitor mooring they are all EMPTY!!!
