BOATS USED FOR TRAINING

 

Beginners and Improvers Martlets training takes place using either glass-fibre, wooden or plastic Optimists. The Optimist is a world-recognised training and racing one-design class, which holds its value very well. Optimists are also used for class racing during Junior weeks.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to accommodate other classes on the Mill Pond.

If families do not have an Optimist, there are two Club Optimists available for hire. Please contact the Club Secretaries by email or on 01243 372850 seven days a week, 0900 - 1300.

Please also note that all boats must be insured to a level of £2,000,000 third party and be maintained in a fully seaworthy condition.

The 'Mill Pond Centreboard'

If your child is joining the Mill Pond Martlets (Beginners & Improvers) they will need a short centreboard because of the shallow water. These are relatively easy to make. You simply need to copy all the dimensions of your existing centreboard but make it 80cm/32 inches (approx.) long.

Advanced Martlets (on the harbour)

Advanced Martlets training takes place using two classes of boat, either a glass-fibre Optimist or an RS Tera. Both classes are also used for racing during Junior weeks.

Insurance

Please note that all boats must be insured to a level of £2,000,000 third party and be maintained in a fully seaworthy condition.
