On safety grounds, the Sailing Committee may place further restrictions on boats permitted to compete in racing.
75 Before bringing any sailing dinghy, rowing boat, canoe or windsurfer board (hereafter referred to as a boat) to the club for the purpose of storage on Club premises, members must register their intention with the secretary of the Boat Storage Sub Committee and obtain details of an available storage location.
76 Members storing boats at the Club should ensure that they are suitably secured to prevent damage to themselves or to other boats.

78 Berths shall be large enough for the storage of one sailing dinghy or rowing boat and may be used, in addition, for the storage of one or more canoes or windsurfer boards. Where unused space exists, members may apply to the Boat Storage Sub Committee for more than two berths.
79 Under normal circumstances, berths storage locations will remain unchanged on renewal of
membership. However, berths may be subject to change during the year, at the discretion of
the Boat Storage Sub Committee, as changes occur to requirements.
80 In allocating berths, it is appreciated that berths close to the Club House are more desirable
than those further away. No adult member or family membership with more than one boat will be allocated more than two berths in the more desirable locations.
81 All registered boats shall be identified by the use of a boat sticker carrying the membership number which shall be issued, after membership renewal or after notification of a change, by the Harbour Master. Boat stickers shall be placed on boats in a prominent and visible location. Any boat not carrying a valid sticker after 1 May will be assumed to have been abandoned. Any trolley or trailer stored in the designated trolley park must be clearly marked with the owner’s name and membership number. Any trolley or trailer not marked after 1 May will be considered as abandoned and the Club will dispose of these items as it sees fit.
82 If the Boat Storage Sub Committee decides that it is necessary to move a registered boat, the Secretary of the Sub Committee will inform the member concerned by recorded letter sent to the member’s address in the membership list to request that they move their boat to the new location. If the requested move has not taken place within 2 months, the Boat Storage Sub Committee will arrange for the boat to be moved to the new location.
83 Members selling boats to other members or changing boats should inform the Secretary of the Boat Storage Sub Committee so that the change can be registered. Failure to register the changes may result in an unidentified craft being removed from the Club premises under Rule 85.
84 Any member of the Club who resigns or is deemed to have resigned by not paying their renewal subscription by 31 March is required to remove all registered boats from Club premises within one month of their resignation. Any previously registered boats belonging to members who resign or are deemed to have resigned on Club premises after one month of the resignation and any unregistered boat shall be treated as being abandoned.
85 For any abandoned boat:
a) The Boat Storage Sub Committee shall be entitled to arrange to move the boat to another storage location in any part of the Club premises without being liable for any loss or damage to the boat howsoever caused;
b) The Boat Storage Sub Committee shall be entitled, upon giving one month’s notice by sending a letter by recorded delivery to the former member at his or her address as recorded in the membership list to sell the boat and to deduct any monies due to the Club (whether by way of arrears of subscription or otherwise) from the net proceeds of sale before accounting for the balance (if any) to the former member;
c) If, in the opinion of the Boat Storage Sub Committee, the boat cannot be sold, the Boat Storage Sub Committee shall be entitled, upon giving one month’s notice by sending a letter by recorded delivery to the former member at his or her address as recorded in the membership list to dispose of the boat in any manner that the Sub Committee may think fit and seek to recover from the former member any expenses incurred in the disposal.
DISSOLUTION OF THE CLUB
