Only club members can hire the club dinghies. Members should have achieved RYA Stage 4 as a minimum requirement before club boats can be used.
Boats available for hire per month:
Laser Pico £20
EABC members can apply for boat hire. It is expected that new members only need to hire a boat in their first year and then should progress to purchasing their own boat. Club boat hire is a short term solution to enable new members to have access to the water.
All club boats must be available for club sailing activities and courses, which are generally from June - August, so usage will be shared during this time and course times are prioritised over personal use.
It will be the user’s responsibility to return the boat in the same condition as it was received. Any issues should be reported to the club Bosun, and missing or damaged kit should be replaced at the cost of the borrower (or the excess on the insurance paid by the borrower where the blame lies with the borrower).
Parent/Guardians are responsible for ensuring that the rented boat is properly rigged, maintained and stored correctly. The club will provide support to parents who are not familiar with rigging and storage of boats.
