The club has a number of sailing dinghies that are available for recreational sailing and racing in club events, including Wayfarers, Picos and Fevas.
To ensure the safety of club members, their families, guests and crew, and the seaworthiness and protection of club property from damage the below document describes the protocols that will apply to any members using the club owned dinghies.
Club dinghies are available for hire by full members (this does not include Crew Membership) when not required for coaching or organised junior activities. A small charge is levied for their private use PICO £5, WAYFARER £10 and FEVA £10. Each hire period is for a maximum of 4 hours. (The charge is not applicable to student members). The hire fee is to be placed in the small red safe in the wet room at the club and the details of the person booking added to the booking log above the safe. A check sheet must be completed before use and when the boat is returned to shore. These are also available in the wet room at the club.
OOD’s of dinghy racing and those overseeing coaching must ensure that any club dinghy being used is paid in advance of launching and the details of the hirer added to the log. If payment has not been made the boat will not be authorised to take part.
All members using club boats must familiarise themselves with the Dinghy Sailing Safety Guide and if racing must submit a Notice to Race form before taking part. These are available to view and print in the members section of the club web site under menu heading Racing.
