Give all humans, dogs, horses and driftwood a wide and respectful berth. Sail to seaward of the 15 mph signs, and to landward of the mud. Under 16s should be overseen by a designated person at all times. All club yachts are marked with an identification number. If you notice any fault in a club yacht, please note it in the book kept at the south end of the clubhouse.
All accidents should be noted in green book which is kept above the blackboard. At end of the day, wash yacht and sail, tidy up kit, return yacht to yacht park, roll up sail and put into bags, wash suits and recover signs.
A Public toilet is at entrance to beach. It is open during winter on Saturday and Sunday only.
IF IN DOUBT - SHEET OUT
This is an ancient piece of wisdom which means if you are worried about your safety, especially if you have only two wheels on the ground instead of the customary three, LET THE SHEET ROPE SLIDE THROUGH YOUR HANDS. Do not sit on the sheet rope or wind it around your hand.
