The Henley Midmar Yacht Club
Boat shed management protocol
To provide convenient inexpensive storage for small craft with deliberate and intentional preference to frequent Midmar sailors.
A small craft would be defined as sailing vessels of size approximately equal to the laser, mirror or miracle.
The boatshed is not intended to be a passive storage facility for occasional or away sailors. The specific purpose is to encourage active sailor participation and youth development AT THE CLUB. “Away” sailors who have access to road-trailers should make use of them.
Preference will be given to
Youth and active schools.
Sailors who base the majority of their activities at the club and therefore do not make use of road trailers.
NO keelboat tenders shall be allowed.
But in all instances use is to enable more frequent “at home” sailing.
- Schools would preferably be asked to rack their boats as they are generally more able to have pupils stack them than individual members could.
- Rack frames will be designed and individuals may pad them according to needs.
- Space / rack rental will be charged at an annual rate determined and published with member fees and payable when club membership fees are due.
- No pro-rata rental period shall apply for shorter term.
- Any vessels stored and storage not paid for within 1 month of due date will be removed by cutting of locks and shall be placed outside at full risk to the owner.
- In the case of canoeists, the same will apply.
- Members may make use of their own racks if agreeable, however they will still be liable PER vessel stored.
- STORAGE IS ENTIRELY AT OWNERS RISK.
Charges will be levied PER CRAFT, whether it is a dinghy, canoe or sailboard irrespective of whether an individual racks multiple vessels on own equipment or not.
Own trailers with racks will be charged the equivalent to 4 craft if space available.
There shall be no distinction in the charge between vessel type.
