Members who have completed the RYA Dinghy Level 2 course will be issued with six vouchers for half-day hire of the above boats/boards, which can be redeemed any time during the current calendar year.

The use of these boats is free for activities taking place as part of organised training courses. Please note that during organised training courses, some of the above boats may not be available. Training courses take priority over any boat hire by members.

Members wishing to hire any of the above boats should complete a boat hire form (available from the clubhouse), filling in a checklist of all the boat's equipment as the boat is signed out and signed back in at the end of the hire period. The form should be counter-signed by another club member, placed in an envelope together with payment, and posted in the Treasurer's box behind the bar in the clubhouse. Please note that, on hiring these boats, members accept liability for 50% of the club's insurance excess in the event of any damage that results in an insurance claim.

Promotional offer - reduced fees on Friday evenings

The club is currently promoting Friday evenings as opportunities for social sailing and windsurfing. In order to support this, the General Committee have agreed to offer a reduced fee of £5 for the hire of any boat or board on Friday nights only. This includes any Friday evening sessions being run by our Youth Academy.
