    Default Swanage

    Having missed a chunk of the summer, my boat is today back in the water and I'm off for a week in early September...hooray!

    I've not been to Swanage for a few years...does it still have decent visitor's mooring buoys? Am I likely to be able to pick one up fairly easily midweek in September?

    Thanks!

    i haven't been for a couple of years but there were bouys near the wooden pier.
    However, last time I picked up a bouy I called Swanage Sailing Club as having somewhere secure ashore for the tender was reassuring

    I was there last Saturday (Bank Holiday weekend) and there were vacant buoys by the pier. I can't imagine you will have any problems picking one up midweek in September.
    It wasn't very sheltered and I'm not sure I would want to overnight there.

    Thanks all. It's obviously very wind direction dependant like Studland but in a westerly I'll give it a bash. Thanks again.
