Rallies of 5 or more boats can be booked by contacting Malcolm Thorpe at the Harbour Office (01983 872828) or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Confirmation and a Rally Booking Form will be sent by the Berthing Office and the Booking Form should be returned, with details of the attending boats, 10 days before the intended arrival date.
The Visitors' pontoon at The Duver is dredged to a depth on both sides of approximately 2 metres at Mean Low Water Springs and can accommodate up to 150 boats - Rallies are grouped together where possible including rafting.
A 12m x 6m marquee (which can be sub-divided or used in its entirety), overlooking the pontoons and Harbour, plus 2 large commercial BBQs, are available for visiting yachtsmen to hire (gas is provided as are tables with bench seating). Usage must be pre-booked via the Berthing Office.
Currently (but excluding August), weekend rallies receive a 5% discount and those in mid-week 10%, on berthing fees. During October we offer a discount of 20% on mid-week rallies. Please note, Premier Finger Berths can be booked separately but do not attract any discount.
