Boat Registration and Storage
£100 Per Boat, Per Year (Boats for Juniors £30*)
We have a boat size restriction of 15ft due to the size of the tarn and the dinghy park. Dinghies must be insured with £2 million in liability insurance, insurance is normally inexpensive.
The club has a number of boats available for use by members during club racing and training activities. These include 4 Lasers, 1 Wanderer, 2 Enterprises, 4 Herons, 5 Toppers, 3 Picos and 1 Optimist. You won’t be expected to buy a boat straight away if you are new to sailing, but it is best to look to owning your own or sharing ownership as soon as you complete your Start Sailing Course.
Club members will be more than happy to offer you advice on purchasing boats, although a £100 boat on eBay may seem like a bargain not to be missed, sometimes you can end up spending more than you need on maintenance, particularly with wooden boats.
