Big expansion for Burnham-On-Sea Sailing Club pontoons

Burnham Sailing Club pontoons

The number of berths at Burnham-On-Sea Sailing Club's pontoons in the River Brue is to be almost doubled.

Increased demand for extra moorings at the site means a £2,000 expansion of the facility is going ahead over the next few weeks.

A barge will deliver two huge metal pylons during the next fortnight which will act as the supports for the new pontoons. Once the structure is complete, up to ten additional boats will be able to moor there.

Sailing Club President Tony Winterburn told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "There's plenty of demand for extra berths."

"So we're having the new pontoons installed over the next few weeks. These will enable between eight and ten extra boats to moor up."

The expansion could lead to additional sea traffic using Bridgwater Bay, which can only be good news for Burnham-On-Sea.
