Dredging has been underway at Poole Yacht Club to clear the entrance of accumulated sediment. This has built up since the last dredge operations in 2014. Founded in 1852, Poole Yacht Club is a much respected Sailing Club with a rich history and strong racing tradition.
Vessels on site for the work include our versatile, self-propelled, spudleg, workboat Doreen Dorward equipped with our 50t long reach excavator for dredging operations. She is perfect for near shore precision operations. Also attending is our 300t, self-propelled, split hopper barge Nab . This combination allows for an optimised, tried and tested dredge solution where access in and around marinas is limited.
The designated dredge disposal site is located in Poole Harbour at Brownsea Roads which provide a quick and efficient turn around to fall in line with the harbour license arrangements. The dredging was optimised with the use of our digital dredge system to ensure that an accurate and high quality finish is achieved.
This has been a successful project and we are always particularly happy to support our local marinas to ensure open access to the sailing community, especially one so close to home.
