The club has a fleet of dinghies and paddleboards (SUPs) that are available for members to hire.

The details of our fleet are here.

These can be hired by members who have a minimum of RYA Dinghy Sailing Level 3 certificate or approval of the Sailing Committee.

The Rules and Regulations for using a Club dinghy or SUP are here.

If you want to hire a club dinghy or SUP, please follow the process set out below.

As the cost of purchase, maintenance, insurance and storage needs to be covered there is a fee for hire of the boats, details are in the link above.

However, to make sure everyone can have a go, we have arranged a few weekly sessions where the hire is Free. These are:-

  • Friday Free Sailing, 17:00-19:00hrs (hire free, no pre-booking required; just turn up)
