Storage Units (Lockers) Available 

Tired of having to bring down all the supplies every time you head out or have some maintenance to do. Don't forget we have lockable storage units (lockers) available for hire. Approximately 2m x 2m x 2m, and if that's too much space you can always share with a friend. Great for storing all those items that take up room at home or on the boat (skis, ropes, spare sails, cleaning products, tenders and outboards, fuel containers etc).
Just think, another shed, a place to hide those extra little purchases, make room to move around the shed at home, and reduce that nagging feeling.
We only have a few left so please contact our Membership Manager Sam on for further details or to secure your spot.



Dinghy Racks Available

Don't forget that we have Dinghy Racks for hire if you want to keep your decks clear during your Winter day trips. Keep those kayaks, paddle boards, or tenders safe but still in a convenient location at the Club so they are there when you need them. 
Winter Special - $100/rack from June 1 2018 - November 1 2018
Please contact our Membership Manager Sam on for further details or to secure your spot.

Members Tips - Forget Glass, Use Plastic

An important safety consideration on boats, particularly ocean-goings, is the use of glass. Plastic does not break if it is dropped. Take your glass home and replace your plates, stemware and bowls with plastic (preferably poly carbonate). There are more colourful and decorative designs.
