of yachts in Burnham-On-Sea marks end of sailing season
huge cranes towered over the River Brue in Burnham-On-Sea to hoist
yachts out of the water during the annual autumn 'crane-out'.
of Burnham Sailing Club took advantage of a high tide and calm weather
on Friday to proceed with the operation to move vessels out of the
River Brue and into the club's boat yard.
spectacle happens each autumn and marks the end of Burnham's summer
sailing season, when boats are moved into safe storage in the club's
boat yard over the winter.
spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It was an early start of
6am as high water was at 9am. Despite some nervous faces, everything
went to plan and all was wrapped up by 11am."
