Towering over Burnham - the huge craneEyes were on the skies above Burnham-On-Sea this week (June 25th) when a huge crane winched yachts from the sailing club into the River Brue.

The delicate operation to move a trimaran and two yachts was carried out over several hours and took advantage of the calm weather and high tide.

Towering over the skyline of Burnham, the huge crane drew onlookers to watch the specatacle, which last happened back in April at the start of this year’s sailing season.

Many of Burnham’s boats will be taking part in this weekend’s three-day Sailing Regatta, which starts on Friday with an illuminated procession of boats.
