of yachts in Burnham-On-Sea marks end of sailing season
huge cranes towered over the River Brue in Burnham-On-Sea early
on Tuesday morning (October 4th) when 20 yachts were hoisted into
the skies during the annual autumn 'crane-out'.
of Burnham Sailing Club took advantage of the high tide and calm
weather to proceed with the operation to move vessels out of the
river into the club's boat yard.
spectacle happens each October and marks the end of the summer sailing
season, when boats are moved into safe storage in the club's boat
yard over the winter and then craned-in next Spring. It always draws
onlookers along the seafront.
club's Dave Wrennall told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We had 20 yachts
to lift out for the winter - it went very well and the weather and
the calm sea conditions were perfect."
