KCC Boat Yard Policy

The following policy applies to storage of all boats, trailers and equipment in the Kurnell Catamaran Club Incorporated (KCC) Boat Yards (herein referred to as the "KCC Boat Yards") comprising Ward Street, Kurnell Boat Yard (herein referred to as the “KCC Back Boat Yard”) and the old Sutherland Shire Sailing Club Inc. in Prince Charles Parade, Kurnell (herein referred to as the “KCC Front Boat Yard”). The KCC Boat Yard Policy are the rules determining fees, eligibility and priority to store boats, trailers and equipment in the KCC Boat Yards due to limited available storage places.

The Boat Yard policy is reproduced in full as part of the KCC Membership Form, which can be downloaded from the KCC Membership page.
  1. Boat Owner must be a KCC Financial Member and must have pre-paid the “Catamaran Pre-Pay Season Race Fee” for the first full and subsequent years of boat storage.
  2. The KCC Boat Yard Storage Agreement must be completed and signed. Boat Yard Storage Fees must be paid and up to date.
  3. The Boat must be sailed regularly at KCC. Least regular sailed boats are first to be asked to leave.
  4. Multi-hulls have preference over all other craft; including trailers etc. “Off the Beach” Catamarans have preference over all craft, including other multi-hulls and trailers.
  5. One Boat Yard Storage Fee implies one space (i.e. boat and trailer must be combined to occupy 1 space.)
  6. For those who store trailers only or non-multihull craft. These may only be stored if there is sufficient space in the boat yard as determined by the Race Committee. Trailers on their own and non-multihull craft may not be stored in the KCC Front Boat Yard without the written permission of the Race Committee. If you are storing only a trailer or non-multihull craft, you will still be charged as if it is a boat/trailer combination. If other boat/trailer combinations require space in the boat yard, you will be given thirty (30) days notice to exit the boat yard and refunded the unused portion of your boat yard fee as determined by the Treasurer or Assistant Treasurer of KCC.
  7. Storage in the KCC Front Boat Yard is at the discretion of the KCC Race Committee who will take into account the frequency of racing of the boat and available space. Owners willing to store boat with mast up (with mast adequately secured including halyards etc. tied off to avoid noise) will be given additional consideration for storage in the KCC Front Boat Yard.
  8. Boats in the KCC Back Boat Yard must not store their boats with their masts up. This is a safety issue.
  9. Physical security and tie down of boat, trailer and equipment remains the responsibility of the owner.
  10. Boats/trailers must be positioned in an orderly manner, with the minimum space between them. Boats must not block the access to other boats and trailers. Masts must not interfere with the access of vehicles.
  11. Boats in the KCC Front Boat Yard must not block access to the building or side gates.
  12. Owners must abide by oral storage instructions from a member of the KCC Race Committee in regard to Boat Storage.
  13. Owners requiring casual storage must provide full contact details and boat/trailer registration to a member of the KCC Race Committee and must still complete a Boat Yard Storage Agreement. Casual storage is at the sole discretion of the KCC Race Committee.
  14. All boats and trailers stored must have adequate third party personal and property insurance.
  15. The KCC Boat Yard Storage Fees apply from 1st September each year (i.e. when you renew, your boat yard fees will cover you for one year from 1st September). New members who join mid-year and wish to pay yearly will be charged $1.50 per day to 1st September or the full yearly fee, whichever is the lesser amount. If the Race Season has not passed the 30th November when a Boat enters the Boat Yard they will still be expected to pay the “Catamaran Pre-Pay Season Race Fee” for the current season.
  16. Casual KCC Boat Yard Storage, less than thirty (30) days, is subject to availability and discretion of KCC Race Committee and must have a KCC Race Committee member’s written approval and is $1.50 per day with a ten (10) day minimum and thirty (30) day maximum and must be pre-paid. The KCC Race Committee member will determine the actual storage space and in which boat yard. For KCC Casual Boat Yard Storage, no key will be issued or lent and hence casual storage users must coordinate entry/exit of boats with the KCC sailing dates and times. The KCC Storage Agreement must still be fully completed and signed by the Boat Owner for casual storage.
  17. Boat Owners and other persons store their craft and gear at entirely their own risk.  KCC and individual Club Members will not accept any liability for loss, theft, material damage, personal injury or death sustained in conjunction with, prior, during, or after the storage activity.  Also refer to the KCC disclaimer on the KCC website (www.kcc.asn.au), which additionally applies.
  18. Boat Owners and other persons storing boats; trailer and equipment are responsible for ensuring they lock the gates of the boatyard (and any buildings or other fenced areas, such as the garages of KCC or the Front Boat Yard building and main doors of KCC and side doors of Front Boat Yard building).  If they are the last to leave on a Club sailing day or are sailing at any other time they must secure the yard/building before they leave.  On days other than club sailing days the yard and building must be locked at any time that the yard or building is unoccupied.
  19. The offer of Boat Yard Storage is strictly limited and KCC reserves the right to withdraw the offer of storage in one or more of the boat yards in its entirety at any time. Reasonable attempts will be made to contact the boat owner.  All boat owners will have a maximum of thirty (30) days from the original notice (which may be mailed or emailed to them and/or posted on one or more of KCC Notice Boards, KCC Website or physically on the boat) to remove their boat, trailer and equipment from storage or it will be evicted. Withdrawal of the storage offer in one boat yard does not  automatically entitle the boat owner to store their boat, trailer and equipment in the other boat yard.
  20. In the event that storage fees are overdue for a period of three (3) calendar months the Kurnell Catamaran Club Incorporated shall have the right to sell the boat, trailer and equipment at a price determined by the Executive Committee of the KCC as fair and reasonable.
  21. In the event that a boat, trailer or equipment are sold in accordance with Clause 20 the remainder of the sale price after the deduction of storage fees will be paid to the boat owner. If the Boat Owner cannot be contacted after reasonable written attempts by KCC, the sale price difference will default to KCC after a period of nine (9) months after the sale.
  22. Boat Owners storing in the KCC Boat Yards are also subject to additional terms and conditions of the “Occupancy Lease’ with the Government. If required, a copy of the lease(s) can be obtained from the KCC Secretary. The fees mentioned in these lease(s) are payable by KCC not the Boat Owner.  
  23. KCC reserves the right to vary this KCC Boat Yard Policy from time to time. Such changes will be documented on the KCC website and current Membership Form.
