Training Activities and Club Sailing Boats
IMPORTANT Club boats are not for general use and should not be taken out without permission
In general terms, they are for use for participants in the following groups, under the direct supervision and allocation by club instructors for
- Junior Training
- Pico Club
They are not available for club racing, or other sailing activities, unless explicit permission has been issued by the Training Group. In addition they should never be taken out when there is no safety cover in the vicinity.
If you are not a direct participant in one of the above groups, you will need to apply to the Training Group for permission (firstname.lastname@example.org) and if approved, a 50 refundable deposit will be required together with a signed undertaking to repair any damage or loss immediately. Failure to repair/replace boat parts will leave training activities short of boats and could result in other members being unable to sail/take part in training activities
There are a number of reasons for these restrictions, a major one being that in case of an accident, the club needs to be able to show that permission was given to the member to use the boat and that the club was satisfied that they had the skills required to sail the boat in the conditions present at the time.
Additionally, the club seeks to ensure that the cost in both time and money terms to the club and to volunteers in keeping these boats on the water is kept to a minimum.
