Boat Hire
 
Our fleet is available to sailors with suitable experience on a sessional basis for the purposes of personal sailing develpment.  In the interests of safety we can only offer these sessions when rescue boats are going to be on the water.   RYA Instructors will be available to support your sailing session.  
 
Please note that the Skene sailing season runs from April to June.   We do not have boats at Skene outwith this period.   Our Peterhead season runs until the end of Septemeber.  
 
Prices are for a 2 hour session and includes buoyancy aids.  
It is essential to book in advance to check that the boat of your choice is available plus rescue cover and instructor support.

Guidelines for hire:
 
  • Sailors should be RYA stage 3 or RYAs level 2 + standard. 
  • Sailors should behave in a seamanlike manner when afloat.   Anyone deemed to be not competent in the boat that they have hired or deemed to be behaving in an unseamanlike manner will be asked to return to shore in the interests of safety of all of our participants.
  • Sailors should be aware of the conditions & skill level needed to sail the boat they have picked.   Our instructors will advise on the prevailing conditions on the day.    In adverse conditions we will cancel the hire.
  • Our instructors will define a sailing area for the hire in the interests of keeping the hire within sight of the safety boat and other sailors.   We require hirers to stay in this sailing area in the interests of their own safety and saftey of all of our participants.
