Terms and Conditions
Equipment hire is subject to the hirer's ability and the weather conditions of the day. The hirer should have at least RYA Start Sailing Level 1 / RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Stage 2 or equivalent experience.
Buoyancy aids or lifejackets must be worn at all times when on the water in any boat, kayak or canoe, or pontoons. Helmets must be worn by children under 10 years old.
Experienced paddleboarders aged over 16 years may choose not to wear a buoyancy aid or lifejacket, provided they wear a leash at all times.
All club boats are covered by the Club's Third Party Insurance. If you have an issue whilst using hired equipment, please contact the club officers to understand how to proceed.
Maidenhead Sailing Club is a volunteer-run centre and participants should expect to have to rig and put away their equipment afterwards during the equipment hire time window. If you need help finding the equipment or rigging, one of the facilitators or volunteers of the day will be happy to help. If someone else is using the same boat straight after you, it is not required for you to put it away, but please make sure that the next person is aware that they will be responsible for putting it away.
