Our Sailing Fleet

BLYM has an extensive fleet of sailing boats available for hire by our members. Our fleet will accommodate almost all levels of sailing from beginner to advanced sailors willing to race performance boats and push themselves to the limits. Our fleet is unusual due to its large size and variety, very few clubs are so fortunate and we pride ourselves on affordable prices which make us accessible to everyone.

Our fleet is renewed regularly, with our current fleet having no boat older than 5 years old (excluding the Coypus of course!) with the more heavily used boats being replaced more regularly.
