1. Usage


Only those qualified and/or authorised members whose names are listed here and on the internal Club Notice Board are allowed to use Club launches.
Any member not listed using a launch with out the Captain's specific permission may not be insured and could face unlimited liability in the event of an accident.

If you would like to be included on the list, then please email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

2. Petrol


A petrol duty rota is displayed on the external Club Notice Board and is drawn up from a list of active coaches so if there is no petrol left, speak directly to the coach whose turn it is for that week, or otherwise fill up the two jerry cans and/or red petrol tanks with unleaded petrol and claim the costs back using a Club expenses claim form, attaching the receipt.

3. Mooring


The sequence of launch moorings, from those closest to the Club House are the CCS launches Terry and Lawrie which are moored along side each other, then the Club launches Lock to Lock and Duncan Ross also moored along side each other, then Tom Jost, Top Cat and Carpathian (the safety launch) in line astern.

4. Security


Help to reduce the risk of further engine thefts by always padlocking the security cable through the engine handle and also leave the engines (apart from Lock to Lock), raised out of the water to reduce corrosion.

5. Operation, damage, faults and repairs reporting


Please try to ensure that the launches are used with appropriate care as their repair and maintenance costs are significant to the Club.
If you have any queries on launch operation, procedures or if a problem does occur, then please report it immediately giving as much detailed information as possible to the following email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Learning from Incidents and Near-misses

We can all learn from others where situations have lead to an incident and hopefully not put ourselves in similar situations, and identify areas of safety needing attention to minimize risk.

Take a look at the Safety Allerts published here.
