The final decision as to whether you take a Kayak out will be up to you. You should paddle within your own ability and take note of the weather forecast. Kayaking on the sea is not permitted. As the person hiring the Kayak, you have a duty of care to yourself and the club Kayak that you are hiring. Prior to use, the hirer should inspect the Kayak and note any defects: If these deem the Kayak unsuitable for use then the hirer will receive a refund of the hire fee. Any defects should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and noted on the Bosun's whiteboard in the OoDs office. Where appropriate the hirer may be asked to assist in fixing the problem.
Booking and Paying
Members hiring a club Kayak, must reserve and pay for the Kayak they require, VIA THE WEBSITE. Bookings are per half day or Evening - fees above. Income will be used for maintaining and increasing the club Kayaks fleet. Payment of hire is by invoice sent electronically paid on-line via Stripe or BACS.
Club Kayaks are checked regularly BUT all helms should check the Kayak themselves before sailing and report any problems to the Bosun using the white board in the OOD office.
In the event of damage:
The hirer will be responsible for the cost of the insurance excess if the damage is funded through an insurance claim. The hirer will continue to be responsible for the cost of the damage up to the value of the excess where no insurance claim was processed.
Paddle leashes must be used at the time of launching and on the water. The loss of paddles will incur a CHARGE OF £50 and must be reported to email@example.com
