Piel Moorings

There have probably been small boat moorings in the lee of Piel Island for centuries. Piel castle was a fortified warehouse for the wool that the monks collected, they then exported it from the island.

As far as we know, the first members of GSC to lay their own there were Martin and Norman, back in 1991 and 1995 when Rod Scarr was King.

Since then the club has taken on the responsibility of laying and maintaining the moorings for the benefit of its members and other sailors when we are not using them.

 

2020 Update

During July and August we have had divers surveying the moorings and some are reported to be missing.

At present the club has no moorings officer so members are encouraged to report back to the committe exatly what they find whilst at Piel.
