Boat Hire

If you don’t have your own dinghy, windsurfer or SUP, we have a selection of equipment for hire to club members at very reasonable prices.  Hire fees include the cost of berthing and insurance. You must have RYA Level 1&2 or equivalent experience to hire any of our sailing dinghies.

Pay & Play!
We have Lasers, Comets, a Solo and an RS Vision for day hire to club members via an online Pay & Play scheme.

  1. Check the club calendar prior to purchasing a day hire ticket. On days when ‘buddy sailing’ is scheduled there is no official safety cover so you must have someone else there who could effect a rescue if needed. 
  2. From the list below, select the month in which the day hire will be. This will take you to the ticketing website.
  3. The password is ‘boathire‘.
  4. From there follow the instructions to purchase your hire ticket(s).


We have two Comets available for day hire via our Pay & Play scheme. The Comet is a single handed boat suitable for sailors up to 70kg. It has an uncluttered cockpit with rear mainsheet control of a 6.5 sqm unbattened sail that is simple to rig on an unstayed mast. The hull and deck is manufactured from glass reinforced plastic. Suitable for beginners and intermediates who may find the Laser a bit of a handful. Pay & Play for a day for £10 (plus booking fee).

The contact for Comet hire is Julian Holden.
