Storage Container (Trial)

Storage Container Trial - April to October 2022

As announced at the AGM, the Club has rented a storage container. It will permit members to store one set of sails (mainsail / foresail / spinnaker or the equivalent for single-handers, ICLA 4.7 / Radial / Full) and one set of foils (daggerboard/rudder). All items must be in sailbags and foilbags that are marked with the member`s name and boat/sail number. Items with no identification will be removed and placed outside the container at the owner`s risk. All items placed in the container should be as dry as possible.

If you wish to make use of this facility, you must sign in the folder located in the wet room to register and to certify acceptance of the terms of use. Please also include details of what you intend to store in the container. The key will be kept in the wet room. It must not be removed from the compound. The container is not to be used for storing any other equipment; there is simply not room. Anything other than dinghy sails or dinghy foils will be removed and returned to your boat. The rental agreement specifically forbids storage of flammable substances. It is the responsibility of the user to insure their property when it is in the container. If you intend to use the container, you you would be wise to check with your insurer that your sails and foils will be covered by your insurance.

The rental is on a monthly basis and the Committee has agreed to pay for a period of 6 months as a trial. After that the cost of the container will be paid by those using it with a charge on top of their boat space fee. The usage of this facility will be reviewed on a monthly basis and misuse or under-use will result in early termination of the rental agreement. The container is meant to allow members who sail regularly to travel by foot or cycle. Members who sail infrequently may be asked to remove their equipment.

The Committee was keen to get something in place as soon as possible after the introduction of parking fees. As this is a trial, the Club cannot fit racking within the container, so please store foils and sails sensibly. If the concept is a success, the Committee will look at options such as renting or purchasing a different style of container or adapting the one we have.
