Club Boats

Click Here to check club boat availability.

We currently have seven club dinghies: one Topper & two Lasers - single hand;
one Magno and two Picos - single or double handed, and one Laser Stratos, as seen in picture below, This will take up to five crew (which is ... cosy).

Club Stratos now named 'Redemption'!

If you wish to use a club boat, please first check Here for availability. Then text your request to Mark Paxton, who will respond by text as soon as possible, and will update the online availability form on your behalf.

Boats are booked on a first come first served basis, so reserve your boat early. To be fair to all members, it is only allowed for any individual member to book one boat / session in advance. Boats may be rebooked immediately after each session.

In case of conflict, priority for the use of club boats is as follows:
  • Group Training, for instance groups shown below
  • Existing Full Club Members
  • PAYG Local Club Members 
  • Existing Out Of County Club Members
  • Temporary and Prospective Club Member

If you live locally and want to experience sailing for the first time, we usually have members who are willing to take prospective members out for a trial sail in the Club Laser Stratos (up to 4 persons). Please contact a committee member, giving as much notice as possible. We will do our best to get you crewing and helming as soon as weather allows.

Out of County members are required to demonstrate that they are 'confident competent' before booking a club boat, either by RYA qualification, or by demonstration.

We also welcome groups who would like to try sailing, and we have worked and are working with the following groups:
