Club Fleet

WWSC has a number of boats available for sailing club members to hire.
These are available on days when an Officer of the Day (OOD) and a support boat are on duty – normally on a Saturday and Sunday (check Duty club calendar).
Boats are available on a first come first served basis and are charged at a daily rate as set out below.
Booking and payment is available through the club website or on the day through the OOD in person at the club. Payment is required prior to the hire.

The member should take due regard of their own experience and the weather conditions on the day. However, the decision for the release of hire equipment is at the discretion of the OOD.

Please remember club boats are the property of all club members so treat them with care and report any damage/defects to the OOD.
