When using Viking, members should fill in the Log Book to be kept in lobby. This will include such information as time and date of use, current fuel state, any problems or damage that has occurred and signature and contact details of the individual using her.

Maintenance will be carried out with the support of club members and the existing network of lifting group members under the guidance of Richard and Peter where applicable. Any small items on Viking found to be missing or damaged will be replaced at Peter or Richard’s discretion. Larger items to be agreed with Vice Commodore or Sailing Committee as appropriate.
