Boat Parking

Parking is allocated to boat owners according to the following criteria, in order of priority: 

  1. Participation in club racing
  2. Age of boat owner and physical abilities
  3. Class and general leisure usage of boats

Participation in racing is documented in the Musing & Results section. Maintaining your boat park position is crucial for safety reasons so that members at the Club can have an idea of who is at sea. Shifting boat positions of same class for any other reason is subject to private arrangement between the involved boat owners.
