Club Watch is the volunteer night security service for the Club. Members participate in a rota to provide a presence at an otherwise deserted yacht club and marina. Individuals or teams of two are equipped with all necessary security and safety equipment and clothing and patrol the yard and the Haven during the evening and night. During the season qualified crews use the Nelsons or Parkstone Pearl to patrol our moorings as well.
The Club Watch service co-operates closely with the Dorset Police Marine Section, Poole Harbour Watch and the Harbour Commissioners to review harbour crime levels and co-ordinate crime prevention and detection. This has been very successful in recent months and crime in the Club area has been very low indeed.
We do of course rely on having sufficient members on the rota that no-one has to sacrifice too many evenings. Duty Club Watch volunteers are in constant contact with the Police and Harbour Control and their safety is our first concern.
