BRIDLINGTON MODEL BOAT SOCIETY-
On payment of subscription fees to the treasurer, I agree to abide by the following.
v Accompanied Juniors: Juniors are the responsibility of the adult member to whom they are related and must be accompanied at all times while on site by that member in the interests of safety and child protection.
v Dogs: All dogs brought onto the club site must be kept on a lead at all times. Any mess must be cleaned up and removed by the owner.
v Club Equipment: This is provided for the benefit of members and should only be used for the purpose intended.
v Sailing Frequencies: Each member must provide a frequency peg bearing their full name if using 27 or 40MHz frequencies. (2.4GHz users are exempt from this rule) This peg must be displayed on the frequency board before the transmitter is switched on and removed as soon as the transmitter is switched off. Only one peg per member at any one time may be used. If a member wishes to use a frequency that is already in use, the present user of that frequency must allow the new user to sail after 30 minutes. To continue sailing, each member must alternate in 30 minute periods. This rule applies over all disciplines and all days except when an organised event is in progress.
v Allocated Days: Tuesdays are designated as “scale and yachts only”. Wednesdays are designated as “Power and competition Fast Electrics only”. (Club 500 boats are not classed as competition Fast Electrics and as such are included as scale boats.) However, any discipline may sail on either of these days if the water is unoccupied but must give way to the appropriate discipline if necessary.
v General Sailing: I/C powerboats and competition Fast Electric powerboats sail on the hour and all other craft (eg. scale and yachts) sail on the half hour at all times other than on designated days and club events. Powerboats and Fast Electrics must not sail unless it is safe to do so. I/C powerboats must be silenced to MPBA standards. All types of powered craft must give way to sail at all times.
v Rescue Boat and Chest Waders: Lifejackets must be worn when using either the rescue boat or waders. No more than 2 persons may use the rescue boat at any one time. Junior members must not use the rescue boat unless accompanied by a responsible adult.
Membership Cards: Please wear your
membership lanyard displaying your up to date membership card when on site.
