Fowey Harbour Fees Dock Port Sea Farer Payment System | Land Cornwall Yachtsmen Sea Trips Holidays | The Cormorant Hotel & Restaurant GolantSailors weighing anchor in Fowey no longer have to come ashore to pay their harbour fees thanks to a new payment system.

Sea farers don't have to hunt for change or even set foot on land to pay their harbour fees these days, thanks to the new 'afloat' mooring and payment system which was introduced at Easter.

The system has proved popular as people can now pay their fees without leaving their own boats, thanks to harbour patrol crews equipped with iPads and chip and pin machines.

Repeat visitors can pay even more easily, as their details can be stored and kept on record.

Naturally, the new system hasn't stopped visitors from heading into the town to explore - even if they technically don't have to make land any more.

Most visitors explore the delights of Fowey or even stay in Boutique Hotels in Fowey, Cornwall, giving them a chance to rest their sea legs in a comfy bed.

Harbour master Paul Thomas said the new system had proved efficient and was a great success.

"Visiting sailors have been really grateful they've been able to pay by card from their moorings, and plenty have stayed more than one night as they haven't had to find cash to pay for their fees."
