Boat, trolley and cover markings

A few recent incidents have highlighted the importance of being able to identify boats and equipment, especially covers and trolleys. This aids identification of boats at sea (for example in the event that a boat does not return as expected), and can aid in recovery of boats and equipment if they are stolen or damaged. Covers and trolleys should be labelled with a sail number, surname and boat class. This does not need to be visible when the boat is put away, so can be on the underside of the cover or trolley. Boats should also have their WYC parking sticker clearly displayed, and readable when the boat is parked and covered.
The WYC Storage and Boat Parking policy has been updated to include “Trolleys, trailers, covers and any other equipment left on the beach when you go sailing must also be clearly labelled with your sail number and name to aid identification in the event of an incident.”
