The nature of the club and our activities in a public location dictate that we have sound administration policies, rules and guidelines to follow. These cover the following;

  • Code of Conduct. Requires the exercise of care with due consideration of members, residents and occupants and visitors to professional offices etc.
  • Hot Weather Guidelines. Trigger Points
    • Review Activity 35°
    • No Structured Activity at 38°C
    • No Activity above 40°C – Boat Shed will not be opened
    • Personal Considerations of health and fitness and available hydration
  • Ml 45 Class Rules. These rules govern the building of the ML 45 boat and restricting the use of unusual and expensive materials. These aspects are explained at our Fortnightly Workshops where many a project boat is first started
  • Featured Boats. Outlines the preferred classes and types of boats that can be sailed or operated on the various days, with the specific exclusion of noisy, high powered speed boats on the lake as per Salisbury Council Bylaws
  • Sailing Rules. The Club has adopted a simplified set of rules and guidelines to be followed in the competitive cruising conducted on Saturday afternoons to avoid mishaps, particularly with newcomers who will not be familiar with the 7 basic give way rules. The above together with the Rygged Start rules form the basis of the Club Competitive Cruises
  • Safety. Guidelines cover general first aid and safety considerations in and around the Boat Shed, when sailing and in operating the Recovery Dingy where the operator is required to hold a boat license
  • Housekeeping. Tasks to be performed to ensure the Salisbury Council provided facilities the Club shares with two other clubs are maintained to the required standard.
