Waldringfield Moorings

Waldringfield Boatyard has a limited number of visitors moorings and will always do their best to accommodate visiting yachts that require a mooring for a night or two. Available moorings can be identified by an orange dinghy marked “visitor”. The Boatyard can be contacted on VHF channel 80 or telephone 01473 736260.

Most of the private moorings in Waldringfield are restricted to craft of 36 feet (11m) LOA or less – in fact many are only suitable up to 20 feet (6m) LOA. If you have picked up a private mooring please do not leave your vessel unattended without first contacting the mooring’s owner or the Harbourmaster.

When there are no vacant boatyard moorings, we will offer the use of other unoccupied moorings if suitable. The Fairway Committee has instructed the Harbourmaster to collect a mooring fee of £10 per night from visitors.

For larger craft, there are good anchorages at “The Rocks” (between Waldringfield and Ramsholt) and at “The Tips” (upriver of the moorings). Please do not anchor in the channel and do not moor to any racing marks (they will move!)

Use of the scrubbing posts is restricted to craft of no more than 10.6m. Please contact the harbourmaster to book.

There is a waiting list for permanent moorings – contact the Waldringfield Fairway Committee on wfcsec@googlemail.com Read the Fairway Committee rules here.
