Elliott Boat Hire 

Some members have booked an Elliott already for the Summer season. This is a cheap way to skipper a boat without having to own a boat yourself and enjoy the racing series with your crew or just enjoy a leisurely sail.  All you need to do is contact Ian Fox to get pre-approval (ie that you are competant, have crane operators license etc) then he will provide you with the necessary paper work needed to complete the hire process. Rates are $30 per race if you are doing a series OR $60 if you are just taking it out for a casual/leisurely sail.
