Oyster Trestles - Warning and incident reporting

As we get into the busy summer season at Whitstable, please don’t forget about the hazard to sailors, windsurfers, swimmers and other water users (even at high tide) caused by the Oyster Trestles to the West of Whitstable Yacht Club.
You are strongly recommended not to go within the area marked by the yellow Hazard Buoys.
During racing, the area between the yellow Hazard Buoys and the shore is a prohibited area. Sailing within this area will result in disqualification (Rule 10.2).
If you see someone in trouble in this area, please call 999 and ask for the coastguard.
Please report any incidents or ‘near misses’ to the club. There is an Incident Book behind the bar, or you can email reports to office@wyc.org.uk
