If you are going to be arriving at the base late, you will need to inform the base directly. When you arrive at the base, at the main entrance you will find the phone number of the harbour master.
You will need to contact him and he will come and let you in. The boat will be left open with the lights on for you to stay on board that night. The base staff will do the full briefing the following morning. Please note that arrivals after 20:00 are not possible as the marina is locked.
Your boat will be ready to depart for 16:00 - 17:30. We recommend that you arrive 60 minutes earlier for check-in and instructions.

Your boat should be returned and unoccupied by 9am on your last cruising day (or by midday if you have booked a Late Check-out).
