Members’ Boat and

Windsurf Hire

Bough Beech Sailing Club members can hire a range of water equipment, boats, windsurfing and paddle boards, during the weekend and Thursday evenings when safety boat cover is available.  Hired boats can be used for leisure sailing on the reservoir or to enter a racing event at the club.   There are a range of different types and sizes of boats to hire to suit all ages and abilities.

How to Hire Boats

Complete the Hire Form, available from the Officer of the Day or download from this page.  Give the completed hire form, with the fee, to the Officer of the Day, rig the boat and enjoy your sail. After you have finished sailing contact the Officer of the Day and report any issues and derig the boat. Please replace the equipment in exactly the same place as you found it.  All hirings are subject to availability, in particular boats needed for club training will not be available when courses are planned.

All boats are stored in the club boat compound, opposite the clubhouse entrance. The masts (where not rigged on the boat) and sails are stored in the main container in the boat compound. Note that each boat has its specific equipment identified with its number. Please do not mix sails / masts / booms even if they are for similar craft.




Contact the Bosun Sail  if you would like some advice on the best boat to hire for your needs.  The windsurf captain would be happy to advise on the club’s windsurf boards and equipment available for hire.
