The SGBA owns a fleet of sailing dinghies, 7 Toppers, 6 Laser Bugs, 6 Laser Picos, 2 lasers and a Wanderer. They are clearly marked with a sticker saying "Owned by the SGBA", all are stored in the quarry near the Boat House at Mill Point. They are available for use by members and their accompanied children.
If you have have paid the £40 annual boat user charge you may use the club dinghies for free whenever you want. Remember you must always wear a bouyancy aid, you are responsible for anyone in the dinghy and you must report any damage or missing equipment to the Quartermaster (Sail). Please read the guidelines on using the club boats before using any club boat.
Throughout the spring, summer and early autumn we have an extensive sailing programme - follow the link to the Summer Programme for details.
Many SGBA members have their own boats and the SGBA has facilities to support members using their own boats, and events to bring members together on the water.
River Lovejoy has put together some detailed instructions for using the SGBA's Wanderer, "Cygnet". Download the pdf file here.
