There is a fleet of some 40 Club Boats available for use by Club Members; GP14's, RS Feva's, Toppers, Optimists, Lasers and Bahias. For disabled Members, or those with restricted mobility, the Club also has two Challenger tri-maran dinghies for either single-handed or accompanied sailing. All Club Boats are available free of charge during social sailing and club racing, on a first come first served basis. A number of boats are on Open Access and available to members at anytime during the sailing season.
All we ask is that you have fun, the boats are treated with respect and that all Club equipment is returned to the correct place when finished with. If there are any problems or breakages these should be reported promptly to the Facilities Team, so that repairs can be carried out before the next sailing session.
For those looking to try their hand at racing away from Redesmere, a small number of boats and road trailers are also available to Club Members, by prior arrangement with the Training Team.
Designed for two people, a GP14 can carry 3 adults comfortably; it is difficult to find a more versatile family boat. The GP14's at Redesmere are a good training boat for adults and are well used by members.
Designed as a racing dinghy, it can be demanding for a beginner to get to grips with but is rewarding and exhilarating to sail. The Club also has Laser Radial and 4.7 rigs, which have reduced sail area to make easier sailing for lighter weight helms or windy conditions and are used on the same standard Laser hull.
The Bahia's versatile design provides a great platform for social sailng or racing. The spacious cockpit easily has room for several adults, whilst the flexible sail plan provides the option for family racing.
The Challenger tri-maran dinghy is an exceptionally stable dinghy, ideal for sailors with some form of disability. The Club has Challenger boats in both single handed and accompanied sailing layouts, and, as such, these are suitable for a wide variety of sailors.
