Boat hire 2024


Boat hire - boat hire for any club boat by a Whistable Yacht club member.

This is for times outside cadet or improver sessions. No hire agreement needed for those sessions.

Club boats can only be hired when a safety boat is on the water. This is normally at weekends when club racing is on, or occasionally school holidays during the week, when training is being delivered. Hire also depends on what else is going on on that day, any courses have priority for boats rather than boat hire.


A member of the training team will be in touch to confirm the boat hire. Please do not assume boat is hired without conformation from the team.

If it is not possible to hire on the date asked for, an alternative date will be given or refund.
