CLUB BOATS FOR MEMBERS USE

We have a fleet of fully insured boats for members to use. The boats can be used at any time but if you wish to use the boats when there is no safety cover then there are a few rules to ensure your safety.

  1. You must be competent to sail unsupported and the wind must be force 4 or under. If you are in doubt about your ability then please contact a committee member to seek advice.
  2. If possible, take a phone with you as a safety measure.
  3. Personal buoyancy aids and suitable clothing MUST be worn.
  4. Notify a friend that you are going out and when you will be back. Phone them when you are back in.
  5. DO NOT SAIL OUT OF THE CREEK. The sailing area is limited to the creek up to Mundon point. Please ensure you know where the sailing limits are before setting off. Club boats are not insured outside of this sailing area.
  6. Enjoy your sail!

The Club boat sails and buoyancy aids are all stored in the Cadet Hut which can be accessed using the gate key.

PICO x 3 (2 yellow and 1 grey hull)

The Pico is an easy to handle boat for all ages and abilities. There are 2 yellow Picos that can be rigged with a jib for sailing two up or just a main for single handed. The grey Pico has just a main for single handed sailing.

The Picos are stored in the final row in the dinghy park next to the camping area.

The Pico spars (mast, boom), centre boards and rudders are stored in a rack under the veranda which can be accessed using the gate key.

LASER x 3 (1 red, 1 white and 1 yellow hull) 

The Laser is usually the next step after the Pico and is sailed single handed. It can be rigged with a 4.7m sail which is great for youth or lighter sailors, a 5.8m Radial rig or a Full rig with 7.1m sail. We have 3 almost new 4.7 rigs and a full rig available.

The Lasers are stored in the final row in the dinghy park next to the camping area. The spars, centre boards and rudders are kept in each boat.

OPTIMIST x 2 (1 blue and 1 white hull)

The Optimist is a single handed dinghy for children (up to age 15). It is a great boat in which to learn to sail and many top class sailors have started in these!

The Optimists are stored in the final row in the dinghy park next to the camping area.

The Optimist spars (mast, boom), centre boards and rudders are stored in a rack under the veranda which can be accessed using the gate key.

TOPPER x 3 (2 red and 1 light blue hull)

The Topper is a popular boat in which to learn to sail and for just messing about on the river. It is easy to rig and a good choice for beginners.

WAYFARER (white hull)

The Wayfarer is a large boat with a jib and mainsail which can easily take up to 3 adults. We use this boat for training as it is stable and is ideal for cruising (when safety cover is available).

KESTREL (white hull)

The Kestrel is a large double handed boat with a jib, mainsail and spinnaker. It is lighter and faster than the Wayfarer but not as stable.

GP14 (white hull)

The GP14 is a medium sized double handed boat with a jib and mainsail. It is lighter than the Kestrel and relatively stable.
