Club Boats

Change to rules regarding use of club Wanderers . . . .

It is now possible (April to October) to use the club Wanderers even when there is no safety boat cover so long as:-

1.  You have been shown how to rig, launch and pack the Wanderers away after sailing and have demonstrated that you are a competent dinghy sailor. Your name will be added to the list of ‘approved’ helms.

2.  You have signed a disclaimer to say that you are using the boats entirely at your own risk.

3.  You do not sail single-handed.

4.  You stay on the broad.

For more information, please contact Veronica Falat  sailing@wobyc.com

 

We have a fleet of well maintained and competitive dinghies that suit a variety of different needs, skills and sizes.  Club boats may be used by any club member for a charge of £5 per day or part thereof, this charge is to cover the upkeep, insurance, Broads Authority tax and storage.  Club boats may only be used when there is club safety boat cover available (Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, Saturday afternoons and Sunday Mornings).

Currently the club owns:

5 Optimists – one race spec and four training spec

4 RS Teras – with both ‘Sport’ & ‘Pro’ rigs

4 Toppers

1 Laser

2 Wanderers

We now have a booking system in place which will help to ensure you get a boat when you require one.  When you book out a boat you will need to pay the £5 hire fee to a member of the safety team who will be at the club.  If you intend racing please ensure that you try and use the same sail number each time as its the sail number that is counted and not the sailor!

A great deal of time and effort has been put into maintaining our boats and to ensure that the boats are up to scratch please look after them and ensure that any defects or damage is reported ASAP in order that it can be fixed.

Demand for these boats can be high so please plan ahead if you would like to use one.
