How to Hire Equipment outside of Designated Club Nights.


To hire any equipment outside of the standard Friday Night you will have to contact a ‘Key Holder’ or join in on any confirmed session you see on the Facebook page. The more notice you can give, the better. The key holder will give you access to the boat house and equipment house and and you can arrange a return time with the key holder to unlock the boat house when you are finished.


You will be expected to pay for the hire in full before you depart and you will be expected to clean all hired boats and equipment on your return as well as store all equipment correctly.

You can ‘shout’ for a key holder on the Facebook page  or you can contact a committee member using the website Contacts Page.
