What is included:

Cruisers: Maximum size for cruiser for launching and hauling out at the club is 6 tons gross including trailer and all on-board equipment, 30ft hull length and 32ft LOA, including fixed bowsprit, but excluding moveable projecting parts providing they don't impede the launching process, and a maximum 15ft overall width of boat and trolley. Proof may be required of gross weight, length and beam. The annual charge for a cruiser includes a mooring position or Berth in the Ballast Hole (but not mooring tackle*), storage in the open, summer storage of one launching trolley or road trailer, hauling in and out, use of mast crane, high-pressure washer and biennial mooring inspection. The Charge is not reduced if a member uses a mooring, and does not use the Club’s storage facilities. The charge is reduced if a member uses the Club’s storage facilities but does not require a mooring position, or a berth in Ballast Hole. A pulling dinghy kept ashore as a tender to a boat on a mooring is not subject to charge but must be clearly marked with both Member and Cruiser name. Trailers must also be identifiable and will be allocated a trailer number. Trailers should conform to Club Guidance and if on inspection are deemed unfit for use must be repaired before hauling in and out is permitted. Additional Tenders and Trailers are chargeable at the above rates.

*Members are responsible for their mooring tackle. If inspection shows the mooring tackle to be unfit for use, the Club will require necessary remedial work to be carried out before the mooring can be used.

 Dinghies: The annual boat charge for a dinghy includes entitlement to keep one launching trolley and one road trailer at the club. All boats/trolleys/trailers must be clearly marked with the owners name and boat name (if applicable).

 For subscriptions and boat charges related to fractional years refer to Club Rule A4.

 BSC Members approve the Membership and Boat Charges for the following year at the annual November EGM.
