I reviewed these notes in September 2021. The Yacht Club will be very welcoming if they know you are coming but you would be advised to let them know; it will make your visit happier.
Mud, mud, glorious mud!

As described, Barry is a great place to escape a foul tide, heading up or down Channel. The mud is deep and soft, fine for even a fin keel to dry out upon. The yacht club can be accessed by dinghy via the slipway 2 hours either side of HW. Fridays are their club nights. Don't be tempted to use the floating pontoon. It's strictly reserved for the RNLI and Pilot boats. No access is possible through the security fencing.

Barry is very quiet these days; about one vessel per day so you shouldn't be disturbed at anchor. There's nobody there to charge you so we haven't gone into prices.
