We want you to get out on the water and have fun, but please do so safely and responsibly. Please abide by the following rules:
- Boats may only be used by qualified members.
This includes kayaks and SUPs. Qualified means you’ve taken a class at the club on the type of craft you wish to use. Member means you’re a member. There are a couple exceptions – read Guests in Boats.
- All boaters should be a member of US Rowing.
This includes for SUPs and Kayaks. Membership ensures that both you and the club are covered by insurance. It costs only $10/year and it is quick and easy to join. Go to https://membership.usrowing.org/ Club code is FM7HD
- Always sign in and out in the log book.
Before use, inspect the boat for damage. On return, clean the boat thoroughly and note any problems or damage that occurred.
- Be Prudent
Boats should not be launched in winds over 15kts, or taken west of the Golden Gate Bridge, or be out after dark without permission from the Boat Captain.
- Club Events Have Priority
Dolphin Club boats may be reserved for pilot service during Dolphin Club scheduled swims, for rowing regattas and club-organized events.
- Don’t Assist External Events
Dolphin Club boats and property may not be used to assist third-party swims or triathlons. Only Dolphin Club or South End Club events.
