Laser Program Guidelines

Laser Program Guidelines

  1. Participants will be required to reserve boats online through the SISA Laser Chairperson and RSVP via email with the Beach Captain no later than Thursday evening at 8:00pm before an event. You will receive Beach Captain contact information after registering. No shows with reservations in place will lose their boat privileges.
  2. Your are responsible to help the Beach Captain rig, transport boats to the water, derig and secure the boats on the SISA Laser trailer after use. Saturday meeting times will usually be at 9:30am.
  3. A signed waver is required for all participants. Waiver is available here. Please fill out and bring with you. Adult supervision is required for family members in good standing under 18 years of age sailing SISA owned boats.
  4. Minimum sailing proficiency shall include the basic ability to maneuver under three points of sail; launching and landing; and self rescue. The Beach Captain will have sole discretion whether to allow a Full Member use of the Club boats based upon ability and proper attire.
  5. The Beach Captain is responsible for: the transport of club boats to and from events, management of the boats & users at events, recording of any issues and coordinating with the Program Chair. SISA BEACH CAPTAINS ARE NOT SAILING INSTRUCTORS. Please respect that the Beach Captain is volunteering to help YOU get on & off the water and may also be racing during the weekend. Please be on time.
  6. Users are responsible for providing their own Coast Guard Approved Type 3 or 5 PFD and appropriate clothing & footwear. (Think a day of whitewater rafting with dress appropriate for the weather. You will get wet!).
  7. Breakage will occur. This is an extremely low budget program – incidents will be reviewed on an individual basis with the potential for users to be asked for reimbursement for repairs or loss.
  8. Initial reservations will be on a daily basis. This may change to half day usage dependent on demand. Based on interest and the discretion of the Laser Program Chairperson, SISA club owned boats may be available at other times to Full Members and their families for additional use.
