£160 per night for a 30 footer



It will cost a 30-foot yacht more than £160 per night to berth alongside in Weymouth Harbour during the Olympics.

Vessels up to 15-metres (49-foot) long will be charged £18 per metre per 24 hours while the Games are on from July 26-August 12.

This works out at £137 for a 25-foot yacht, £153 for a 28-foot yacht, £164 for a 30-foot yacht and £192 for a 35-foot yacht for a 24-hour stay.

An anchorage, which will have restricted tender use, will cost £10 per metre per night for yachts under 15 metres.

From July 16-25 and August 13-September 9, which includes the Paralympics, berthing costs will be £5 per metre per 24 hours for boats under 15 metres.

People with pre-booked visitor berths or annual berths in Weymouth will be able to anchor in Portland Harbour to watch the racing, but the race areas are closed to navigation each day from 0800 until the racing ends. Day-sailing to view the race areas will not be permitted.

Sailors can apply for berths until this Sunday by visiting harbour.weymouth.gov.uk/london2012. Any remaining berths will then be allocated on a first-come-first served basis.

The alongside berths during the Olympics will be more than 700 per cent dearer than the current fees. Until April it costs £2.40 per metre per 24 hours for yachts up to 19.9 metres (65 feet) to moor in Weymouth Old Harbour.
