We are very lucky at Staunton Harold to have such a large fleet of club boats for members to hire.
These are also our training boats and if they are being used for organised training courses they will not be available for hire at these times. However there is almost always a boat available for you to sail. Contacting Lol Hayward (email@example.com) in advance to check availability will help to avoid disappointment. He will also be able to answer any questions you may have, particularly if you are new to hiring or sailing.
We need to make a charge to people hiring club boats so that we can afford to maintain them to the standard you expect. Some of our boats are newer / in better condition that others and this is reflected in these charges. The Visions and Fevas are our newest dinghies and are only available for hire if there is someone on the premises with a green or purple dot key (committee members and some senior instructors from the training school).
Please put your payment or vouchers in one of the envelopes provided next to the safe and label it clearly with your name and which boat you hire before placing in the safe. You will also need to sign the 'Boat Register'.
Fees for hire are as follows:
For new members who have received vouchers after completing a sailing course, one voucher equals an evening or half day, two vouchers please for a whole day.
Thank you for your help in running a successful fleet of hire boats. See you on the water!
