2018 Club Boat Hire   iCal entry for this event

All the clubs boats can be used for free during official club training where priority will be given.

 

In addition club sailing dinghies can be hired and used by appropriately experienced club members (Stage or Level 2 minimum) where rescue is provisioned or when racing. Please click on the 'RESERVE' link below then return to this event and pay the appropriate half day or full day fee.  Note that the provision of club boats is subsidised by the club and is not to be used regularly by members to replace the use of their own boat; the boats are intended for training and to assist developing sailors to get on the water and start racing without having to purchase their own boat immediately.

 

  1. The boat cover should be fitted securely after finishing. (If race sails are being used then put the hire sails back in boat after you have finished)
  2. The boats should be tied down to the ground chain to prevent them moving in stronger wind.
  3. Do not use boats unless you have been previously familiarised with them.
  4. Do not use spinnakers unless you are experienced with how use them.
  5. Breakages or other faults must be reported on the whiteboard in the club foyer or contact Gary Coop or Dave Eccles
  6. If any boat kit e.g. kicking straps are not easily removable it's probably because they shouldn't - please respect!

Additionally club powerboats can be hired in support of sailors who are training or being coached. The cox must be qualified to at least RYA powerboat  level 2.

 

All the boats are the club's property and we expect the boats to be treated as such. Please note the hire facility will be withdrawn if the boats are not looked after.

 

Due to demand and to avoid conflicting bookings leading to disappointment booking is now a 2 stage process.
