Moorings at Barry Yacht Club

Each year Barry Dock Master delegates the authority to allocate mooring berths in the western sector of the Pierhead Harbour to BYC members. Trot moorings extend along the western sea wall. These start from directly in front of the clubhouse for small shallow draft boats and continue all the way out to near the harbour entrance for larger craft.

Closer in shore, below the mole separating the Lady Windsor lock from the outer harbour, there is more space for club moorings, most of which dry to a soft mud but are still suitable for fin-keel yachts.

Further seaward lie some commercial moorings, now managed by Barry Yacht Club.

The Club currently has a number of drying moorings available suitable for boats up to 10m. Most moorings within the harbour dry to soft mud with access from at least 3 hours before to 3 hours after high water.

Arrangements can be made with the Moorings Officer for boats to be left at Barry.

Whilst there are no designated visitors moorings at present, many Club members will accommodate visitors mooring alongside. However, visitors must seek permission first and mustn’t leave their boats unattended overnight.
