ABOUT THE HOIST
Make sure you have and regularly inspect the lifting points on your boat. It is not a toy and is never to lift people. If you have never used one, ask for help.
The location of a boat in the Dry Sail area is set by the Rear Commodore and is determined by the following factors:
Frequency of boat use. Years of using the Dry Sail area (seniority) will not place your boat in a more convenient location. If a boat is not utilized on a regular basis, it could be moved further back in the Dry Sail area to give other more frequently used boats better access to the beach or hoist.
Volunteer work in the Dry Sail area and around the club house will also factor into location of a boat. An active member who invests their time and energy into the maintenance and improvement of the club’s buildings and grounds will have this factored into their boat location assignments.
The location assignment is a simple formula – boat use and volunteer work are elements the Rear Commodore uses when assigning a location in the Dry Sail area. It is simple and fair. Boats are meant to be sailed and not stored. This is what dictates boat placement in the Dry Sail Area.
Please remember that the Dry Sail area is not a storage facility. Please keep your boat rigged and in sailable condition. Preferences for Dry Sail assignment is given to those who actively use their boats during the season. Dry Sail assignments will not be given to a boat destined for storage and especially if it displaces a boat that will actively be sailed.
