No. A key facet of any shared use scheme is the ability to get boat at times that suit you – thus we carefully manage supply and demand to ensure good availability for all. Our seasonal booking calendar is an important tool in achieving this. Annual fleet membership points are allocated equally across three seasons (4 month blocks: High = May-August, Mid = Mar-Apr & Sep-Oct and Low = Nov-Feb) and they need to be used in the season to which they are allocated.

We recognise everyone is starting from a different position and it helps to think about induction and competency checking as separate activities. For efficiency and convenience, we expect you to “self induct” using our boat guides and spending some time familiarising yourself onboard. We will check competence on a “boat class” basis and once that has been satisfied you are free to induct and book that class of boats.
When you first join, we'll set up a day to walk you through our club processes, berth location characteristics and help you get into the detail of the boat systems, before checking your competency on your preferred boat classes. Further competency checks on additional boat types are charged at £75.

Alternatively, you can join any of our training events - ideal for upping your game across a range of specific key skill areas. See our event calendar for more details.
