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. 
Take advantage of our 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 - Today's Boating Tip: Anchoring

For an anchor to be effective it needs to be lying flat on the sea floor. This is achieved by using an adequate length of chain which holds the shank of the anchor flat and provides a dampening effect on the pulls created as each wave passes. The longer the chain the better for those that use a rope and chain combination. Have enough chain to prevent the flukes from being lifted out with the prevailing conditions. Consider the ground you are anchoring in, and as a minimum - four times the depth of the water. Strong winds or poor holding ground will require a longer anchor rode, and please avoid seagrass beds for environmental and safety reasons as most anchors don't hold very well in this environment.



Just for Laughs
