Hiring Club DinghiesThe club has a fleet of Lasers, Enterprises and Visions which can be hired by members.
Hire costs are as follows:
- £12 per person per sailing session/day for the new Laser fleet. (These boats are identified on their hulls)
- £12 per person, per sailing session/day for the new Rondar Enterprise.
- £10 per person, per sailing session/day for all other Club dinghies.
Please ensure you turn up at the very least an hour before the start of sailing to ensure you get the boat you want and have time to rig and launch it. Fees are payable in the bar after sailing on the day to the Race Officer/Organiser of Riverbanking or Wacky Racing. Members hiring boats are expected to know how to rig and put away boats correctly. The Bosun has issued instructions for rigging and storage which should be followed.
Hire of club boats is at the discretion of the Officer of the Day or event organiser and will be based on experience and conditions of the day. Damage to boats must be reported after sailing on the Bosun's Log (situated in the rack inside the workshop doors). Members may be charged for damage to boats dependant on the circumstances and particularly if they have failed to report the damage. Club boats have been funded from the Club funds and goodwill of members and we do expect them to be treated accordingly.
If you sail your own boat or have arranged to sail another member's boat or crew for them, there is no fee for sailing. There are 40+ member owned dinghies at the club and it is easy to get to know boat owners and offer to crew for them or even ask to borrow their boat.
