Notice To Boaters

1. Access to Raffles Marina Boat Lagoon

You will have noticed some works going on at the entrances to the Marina wet berths over the last few weeks. In an effort to provide you with additional privacy and enhanced security, electronic gates are being installed along with a controlled entry system, providing for authorised persons only to access the pontoons. 

A new membership card, fully loaded to provide you with exclusive access and exit to and from the pontoons, for the duration of your current berthing agreement. It can be used from today and does not require any further programming. This card is not transferrable. Please discard your current membership card carefully or return it to the Club at your earliest convenience.

If your membership includes a supplementary membership, a secondary supplementary membership replacement card is included, providing access for your supplementary member.

A limit number of "Visitors" access cards are available if you wish to register an additional crew member and provide them with access. Please apply directly to the Dockmaster's Office for these registration forms. 

We are anticipating the security gate system to go "live" on 2 July 2018, thereafter you will be required to carry your card with you at all times to gain access and allow exit, from the pontoon area.

1) Yachts must be 17 years old and below
