Notice: The club Sonata is now out of the water for the winter for a major overhaul, the work to be carried out will be mainly to the hull - to treat the osmosis and to tidy up the keel and rudder and to do this we need Bagatelle out of the water for as long as possible to allow the fibreglass to dry out. Unfortunately this boat will not be available for any Winter sailing cruises this year however those members that wish to use the club Wayfarer are still welcome to do so.

UCSC is a members club and as such does have to abide by certain rules.  However, we also  occasionally hire the club out for social  events or meetings in the function room  upstairs
