I heard that the anchoring charges in Dover were steep - possibly to encourage you into the marina.

As Tradewinds says it's free up to 15m LoA

I think some people get confused (and indeed I nearly read it wrong myself) as the price list starts at 15m LoA and there's no mention of an anchorage charge for smaller craft

15m to 20m it's £27.50 per day, over 20m it's £41 per day by the way

Ah thanks. Didn't know that.

Definitely free for a 10m boat. Plenty room tonight :)

I have a rather out of date pilot book (only the Wellington Dock is listed for the marina) and it mentions the harbour authorities providing visitors buoys and a water taxi service to and from them. I have occasionally wondered when they were removed...
