Kayaks must be rented if you wish to remove them from the compound for non club trips. A boat can be rented for up to ten days. We will only rent out four boats at any one time - this does not apply to club events (trips, racing, clinics, etc.)
How to Book a Rental:
1. Email email@example.com (or direct message on Club Locarno Slack Chat) with your preferred boat and dates. You must get confirmation from the kayak director before moving to step 2. Your rental may be turned down if there are other club activities such as rentals, planned trips, etc.
2. We'll create a new rental event in Wild Apricot and send you the link. You can then register and pay for your rental.
3. Sign out your boat when you collect it from the club, and sign back in when you return.
Important Note: To ensure your kayak will be available when you pick it up: please pick it up before sunrise on the first day of rental, or after sunset on the night before.
Another Note: it is not possible to reserve boats. So follow the advice above for picking up kayaks.Anyone renting a kayak must first be cleared for fleet access by completing a checkout or introductory lesson. The actual skills that you require for your proposed trip will depend on your destination. Be realistic about your abilities when planning your trip, and do your homework.
Rental return: return all gear cleaned and in good condition. Report any damage. Replace all gear in the proper locations in the kayak shed (ropes and tie strap coiled)
