Keeping your boat at MKSC
MKSC provides spaces for up to 150 sailing dinghies which members can rent on an annual basis. All boats must be insured to protect against damage or theft. It is not serviced, nor staffed, but occasionally maintained on an entirely voluntary basis. Unfortunately, we don’t have staff or sufficient volunteers for special boat handling.
Whilst the compound is locked most of the time, it is accessible to all of the clubs at the Watersports Centre, and therefore boats stored in the compound are stored entirely at owners risk. If you have a boat of significant value, you should consider taking extra security measures such as additional locks, and removing valuable such as foils and sails. Fragile boats should be protected appropriately.
Once or twice a year, boats are required to be moved to cut the grass and keep the compound tidy. It is the owners responsibility to move the boats, especially if they are fragile / valuable. Whilst every care is taken by volunteers (fellow sailors and boat owners) during the maintenance of the boatyard, sometimes some minor accidents do occur. If you are especially concerned about your boat, please ensure you attend the boat yard maintenance days.
