I reviewed these notes at the end of the summer 2022. All changed again; the Council now has separate staff at St Ives and Newquay and the tariff of £18 per night includes VAT.

I reviewed these notes in September 2021. The website below for the Cornish harbours is quite good and we have added a link to the Newquay pages in the text. The HM here has been lumbered with St Ives as well so there is an Office assistant to answer the phone whilst he has a roving brief. Note that there is VAT to be added to the harbour dues so they are nearer £20 a boat.

We have been informed that the main pier running north/south is referred to as the South Pier and have edited the notes. They emphasize that the South Pier is unsuitable for yachts in a ground swell. The Rowing Club now has showers so temporary membership there would be a good idea. prices haven't changed and the charts have been updated.
Update Spring 2016

These notes were reviewed by Don in May 2016. The old ladders have been replaced and they now charge £15 per night irrespective of boat length.
