Balmoral Sailing Club’s racking policy is set out below.
For new members/boats, there are usually some spare racks for smaller boats i.e. Aeros, Lasers, Windsurfers, Mirrors, Moths, BICs, F11s and MJ,s. For the larger boats, Tasars, International Es, spaces can be limited. Kayaks can be stored in top racks but we cannot store boats longer than 4.6m in the ground or mid level racks.
There is high demand for the lower racks and the more convenient locations. We maintain waiting lists for these. The order on the waiting list is from the time a member first applies for a rack. There is turnover, make it known to the Racking Officer if you want a better rack.
To be eligible for a better rack the boat has to be racing at least one week in three in the club's sailing program. Boats that are not racing one week in three can be moved to a higher or less convenient rack or removed from the club.
When boats are sold, the rack cannot be transferred to the new owner. The new owner has to make their own rack application. However it can facilitate a sale if there is a rack available so get in touch with the Racking Officer who may be able to identify a spot for the new owner, albeit at a higher level.
If you have any concerns or questions about racking at the club get in touch with the Racking Officer especially if you are:
- selling your boat
- wanting a better rack
- looking to apply for a rack for the first time
Racking Officer, Nick Collis-George:
Phone: 0421008485 (text is best)
- Racking fees are payable annually in advance. Fees become due and payable on 1 September each year. A late payment fee may be charged on any fee paid after the due date.
- You will not necessarily be allocated a rack at the level requested. All non-sailing craft will be allocated a 3rd or 4th level rack.
- Boats racked with the club MUST compete at least one week in three in the club's sailing program. The board may grant an exemption to this rule in extenuating circumstances. Applications for exemption must be made IN WRITING to the board. Failure to comply with this condition may result in your boat being either re-allocated to another rack or removed from the clubhouse.
- Racking spaces are NOT TRANSFERABLE.
- Should you wish to remove your boat from the clubhouse, you must advise the club in writing. All outstanding fees, including the current fee, must be paid prior to the boat being removed.
- Keys to the boat storage bays are available for $70.00 from the Racking Officer, Nick Collis-George. The $70.00 is refundable on return of the key.
- Bays are to be kept locked when you are rigging on the beach or out sailing. Don't rely on other people to lock up! Please be security conscious at all times as equipment has gone missing from the boat storage bays as a result of carelessness.
- All boats are racked at the owner’s own risk. The club is not responsible for any boats or equipment that are damaged or removed from the clubhouse. Security of any boats and equipment is the owner’s responsibility.
- Any boat stored on the club premises, for which racking fees have not been paid, is liable to be removed from the club premises. The club reserves the right to recoup outstanding racking fees by selling boats for which racking fees have not been paid.
- Ensure all equipment is clearly marked with your name and sail number and is stored in your rack with your boat. Masts for certain classes may be stored elsewhere as directed by the Racking Officer. Again, make sure the mast is clearly marked. If not clearly marked your goods may be mistaken by the board as not authorised and you run the risk of them being moved, removed or impounded.
