There are two Nacra 350 Catamarans, two Corsairs, four Pacers, five Lasers, and seven Bics. These are used in Learn To Sail courses, Intermediate sailing, and, in some circumstances, in Club racing. They can, also, be sailed, in certain circumstances, by suitably skilled Members. Please note that permission from a Club Committee member is always needed, prior to using a Club boat and they must be booked on our website under Bookings, so we know when they are used. Please pay $15 into the club bank account when using a club boat.

Please remember, when sailing, that SAFETY IS ALWAYS THE TOP PRIORITY (Please read our Disclaimer of Liability, at the bottom of this page)
