The club has a large fleet of boats that can be used by members, which can save you considerable expense and allow you to concentrate on acquiring personal gear such as wet suits, wet boots, roof racks, ropes, etc. Also the fleet provides you with the opportunity to try a variety of boats before you decide to purchase your own.
