Occasionally some boats may be pre-booked for training or some other event, or may be out of commission. On Saturday mornings in the summer, the Optimists may only be hired by beginners attending the organised Club training sessions.
The member is responsible for the boat and should take due regard of their own experience and the weather conditions before hiring.
*The use of the Laser full rig is subject to the prior approval of a Flag Officer or the Sailing Secretary.
