No.

Unlike many other clubs, we have boats that club members can use.

Currently we have about 70 boats, with a good range to suit all ages and abilities:

  • Optimists, Toppers, Picos and Teras for children
  • Lasers and Qubas for adults
  • Access dinghies and Challenger trimarans for disabled sailors (e.g. those with visual impairments or physical limitations)
  • Bahias for anyone.

Boats are provided for all classes that you sign up to.

For sailing outside classes, once you have proven your ability to sail independently, in normal times you can just come down to the club and take a boat out. Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are currently operating a booking system, so that boats are allocated to members for a block of time (e.g. 2 / 3 weeks).

If you decide to invest in a boat of your own (e.g. so you can set it up exactly the way you want it), then we offer an on-site dinghy park to members for a small fee.
