We have 6 Pacers, 2 Herons, 5 Lasers, 2 NS14s, and 2 Tasars available for hire for racing or recreational sailing on Saturday afternoons during the sailing season. You can sail your hire boat from approx. 1:30pm until approx. 4.30pm in the club race or within the bounds of the race course - while safety boats are on the water.

Boats must be booked and hire fees paid by 10.00am on the day of sailing, unless other arrangements have been made with the boat hire coordinator. Some classes of boat are in high demand - so please make your booking in advance of the day of hire. 

You can use this SBSC Trybooking site to ...

  1. Pay boat hire fees - using your Credit Card or Debit Card (Visa, Amex or MasterCard) OR
  2. Book your hire boat - if you intend to pay by cash on the day of sailing.

Boat hire fees (including life vests and race fees) are:

  • $35 for members

Both the skipper and crew MUST be competent to sail a dinghy in tidal rivers in the same class of boat or a similar class of boat to the one you wish to hire. If you are uncertain please email sbsc.bookings@outlook.com
