Craft ownership

Members who would like to store their own Regularly Sailed Craft in the club pen must seek the pen masters permission before the craft can enter the pen. The pen master will allocate a space if one is available.

Please contact the pen master via the Club email to check before you take out membership.

Note: Any craft coming into the pen/sailed/paddled at the club must have appropriate insurance. There is a section on the club membership form. If you buy a craft after you have filled in the membership form, you must fill out the membership form again and follow the same procedure by contacting the pen master before the craft can enter the pen.

Note: If you do not renew your membership, your craft must be removed from the pen.

You will be issued with a pen key giving you access to your craft at any time. Note you will be responsible for the security of the club in making sure the pen is locked with the padlock inside the enclosure. The pen must be locked if left unattended. The pen key must be returned to the club if you sell your craft or/and leave the club.

Note: Existing members with Craft in the pen – If you sell your Craft, please inform the club pen master by Club email immediately. Please state whether you have sold the craft outside of the club and what date the craft will be removed; or if you sell to another member and state who that member is.

Sailing members who wish to store their Kayaks in the club pen must first contact the pen master to see if there is space (Note: There is limited space and Sailing craft will take priority over Kayaks). If the designated kayak space is available, then the kayak must be placed there and tied down. As with all craft entering the pen, they must have appropriate third party insurance as a minimum.
