If you have applied for a mooring here at Cromarty this coming season, please make sure your mooring riser is back in the compound by the end of Sunday 23rd February, ready for attaching to the block; this will give the Moorings Working Group time to lay the moorings well before Crane-In (scheduled for weekend of 11th April).
Requests for volunteers to help on land and sea will be sent out nearer the time.

Seasonal Harbour Berths
It’s the time of year for all aspiring sailors to apply for berths in the harbour, Please check out the harbour website and noticeboard for more details. Please note the closing date for applications is 29 February, preferably electronically.
Whilst we wait for lighter nights, hopefully calmer weather and better tides to allow contractors Lochshell to complete the installation of the new greenheart fendering system, F & G builders are busy prefabricating elements of the new sheds with a view to erecting them as the weather permits in the next few weeks.
The Harbour Committee will shortly be advertising the new harbour sheds for lease, details will be available on the Harbour website and Facebook pages as well as on CBC website and interested parties should contact us at email@example.com.
