Sparrow Crane Hire at Burnham-On-Sea’s Sailing Club on the evening of May 12th crane lift scores of yachts into the River Brue during the town's traditional 'crane-in'.
Due to the Coronavirus lockdown in 2020 unfortunately the event was postponed, but in 2021 with increased safety measures, even though there was an added challenge of wet weather, the crane lift went ahead. The government's easing of the lockdown enabled the members to have time to prepare their boats.
The club’s Sailing Master David Barrett told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “For 2021 we have organised a watersports programme with our usual racing, Bristol Channel cruises, and Gig rowing events throughout the summer. After 18 months stuck in the boatyard, many of our members are itching to get safely back on the water!” View the full article on Burnham-on-Sea news.
