The maximum complement for the launch, including the skipper, is 12 persons and the launch will not be taken beyond Deep End, unless specifically authorized and pre booked with the office. At low tide, operation may be restricted by access to the lower quay.
During operating hours the launch driver, Michael, can be contacted on Channel 37 call sign "Bosham Launch" or by telephone (preferred) on 07507 154298. Please be aware of peak times when the service will be busy and contact the launch driver with sufficient warning to arrange your end of day pick up. The service will finish promptly to allow for pack up and prep for the next day. Members should not expect instant service at busy times or ask the launch driver to wait beyond normal finish time.
BSC reserves the right to suspend the launch service at any time, at the discretion of the launch driver, bosun or sailing manager. This could be due to malfunction, inclement weather or driver/passenger safety. Please check ahead of time if your use of the launch is critical, e.g. for coming ashore after a late arrival into Bosham.
