The BYS concrete hardstand has the capacity to store up to 30 boats in ‘dry’ storage (on trailers) including sports keelboats up to 10m in length and weighing under 2 tonne total weight.
Sports keelboats, and notably the recent addition of two J70s to the BYS fleet, are promising to make the hardstand a very important feature of the club offering keelboat owners a new exciting sailing pathway.
The hardstand is equipped with a crane that is used to lift craft out of the water. It may only be used by approved operators.
BYS welcomes enquiries from any sailors with an interest in racing such boats and storing them on the hardstand.
