Guernsey boaters join forces to oppose mooring fee rise

Boating organisations in Guernsey have banded together to oppose a proposed increase in mooring fees.

The charges rose by 3.5% this year, but could increase a further 15% if the States agrees to rises to a range of fees at the harbours and airport.

The proposed rises are aimed at raising an additional £1m a year in revenue.

David Norman, president of the Marine Traders Association, said the States should stop targeting boaters and start cutting spending.
