Raider 18 Cruiser Now Available to Members

Raider 18 Cruiser

The Club has purchased a Raider 18, Keel Boat, which for the remainder of this season will be available for members use free of charge, its perfect for getting your family out on the water and for those who are concerned about sailing without safety cover, it can be sailed single handed or by those from the same household.

To book the Raider for the Morning or Afternoon please contact Steve Pooley (Commodore) for latest availability. Email – Commodore@balasc.org.uk or call 07951725622

It is now on a mooring and ready to go for all members free of charge.

A calendar for the coming week will go up regularly on the Club Facebook Group showing availability for 1/2 days per day for both boats, you will be able to book it on there when available (you must still book in your visit to the club on the website) no facebook users can contact me directly to check availability and book (07951725622)

Both boats can be accessed by paddling out a club optimist, which is to be securely left on the mooring whilst you are sailing.

Both boats have roller furling jibs and the main is left flaked over the boom so are very user friendly and quick to rig.

For your own safety, anyone using either keel boat is strongly advised to wear gloves and use alcohol wipes to wipe down both the optimist tender and the keel boat before use.
