SAILING

1. Starting this Saturday 24th November racing will take place every Saturday afternoon (instead of Sunday afternoon) & the 1st start will remain at 3pm. The reason for the change is that the vast majority of sailors wanted to keep Sunday as a Family day.

2. Introduction of fees for Storage & Sailing. At the last General Committee meeting a proposal was accepted to introduce a mix of annual fees for storage of boats and for rigging and use of club boats to contribute to the costs of sailing. The fee structure will be implemented from 1 December 2012 (except for rigging fees which have already started). The boat hire fee is subject to change with notice in respect of the Bosun’s & 420’s, which will be reviewed once the renovation programme is completed. This is because final repair costs are not known until we get new sails.

STORAGE FEES

1. Sailing Dinghy storage fees Ksh 3,000/= charged on boat owner, including one shilling scheme boats. Payable annually by 1 September (within 1 month of start of sailing season), except that this will be from 1 December in 2012/2013 season and then next due date will be 1 September 2013.

2. Motor Boat storage fees – Ksh 150/= per foot of overall length per month subject to:
a) If boat is not actively used (at least monthly) and space is required for storage of sailing dinghies, or other club boats, then the Club may give 2 months’ notice to the Owner to remove the boat.
b) The Owner to be responsible for ensuring the boat is on a serviceable trailer to allow boats to be removed from, or shifted within the club premises to suit Club requirements.
c) Owners do not have the right to any particular slot within the storage shed.
d) The Fee is payable 2 months in advance.
3. Cruising yachts Ksh 50/= per foot of overall length per month on the following conditions.
a) Must be on serviceable trailer.
b) Payable 2 months in advance.
4. All boats stored at owner’s risk and Owners responsible for insurance.

SAILING FEES

1. Rigging fee Ksh 250/= per boat to be recorded by Idi and charged weekly
to Boat owner (same manner as a bar bill).
a) Applies only to boats rigged by the club staff.
b) Boats will only be rigged upon individual request to Idi (with reasonable notice).

2. Hire of Club Dinghy (Members) Ksh 500/= per race day. (Waived for any
member who helps Idi rig and unrig the boats and clean them after sailing).
Rate for 420/= and Bosun may be reviewed upon completion of renovation
programme.

3. Hire of Club Dinghy (Non Members) Ksh 1,000/= per race day, payable in
cash – recorded by Idi and paid at the Bar.

COMMODORE.
