Use of club craft is restricted to sailors who are deemed capable of handling the craft in the prevailing conditions, minimum RYA Dinghy level 2 or equivalent, and the decision of the OOD or club official will be final.

Anyone sailing any craft in an unacceptable manner will be removed from the water.

The sailor will return the boat, any equipment, to the club in the same condition as it was borrowed, barring fair wear and tear.

The sailor will report any defects on the boat to the OOD who will add these to the bosun's list.

Maintenance and Insurance

The club shall be responsible for the cost of any repairs needed owing to normal usage

The sailor shall be responsible for any losses or repairs owing to negligence on the part of the sailor up to a value of £50

Where the boat is subject to an insurance claim, the sailor will be responsible for the cost of any insurance excess (£50) if the committee deem the sailor's actions to be negligent.

Early termination

Sailors found to be in breach of any boat terms and conditions accept that the club has the sole right to withdraw the use of a club boat at any time and that the club's decision, in this respect, will be final.
