Are you interested in joining FlexiSail but don’t want the commitment of our full membership plans? Then SimplySailing by FlexiSail is for you!
SimplySailing is a no-frills membership giving you limited access to your own FlexiSail sailing yacht for a fixed monthly fee. Membership is £300/month for any of our sailing yachts and you receive 2 consecutive midweek days every 2 months. This totals 12 sailing days per year.
Membership is a 12-month commitment and you can make bookings up to 12 months in advance. You can choose which sailing yacht you’d like to join but you can change boats at each annual renewal.
To join, complete our joining form and pay the £495 joining fee. You’ll then be able to start booking your first sailing adventure.
Yes you become a member on your selected FlexiSail sailing yacht and have access to the calendar to make the reservation. You can then change the booking up to 5 days in advance, if required.
No SimplySailing members do not receive any last minute allocation.
After the joining fee, we do not have any FlexiSail membership extra charges.
Your FlexiSail boat is fully insured, berthed, maintained and managed by us. Even the cooking gas and fuel is included. There are no further costs for you to pay. You are of course responsible for your own overnight berthing costs when away from your home marina. FlexiSail membership is true fixed cost sailing!
You do have to cover the insurance excess if you have an incident.
To ensure that you are fully familiar with your yacht you do a two day induction with an instructor booked in management time, and which is charged separately. All training is also charged for separately.
With FlexiSail Insurance you are liable for the first £2,000 for year 1. After your first year it reduces to £1,500 and then £1,000 for any subsequent years, assuming you haven’t had an incident above £200.
FlexiSail Insurance is comprehensive and with a Lloyds mainstream insurer. Your excess is recoverable where the insurers deem it is not your fault. Normally incidents happen in the marina and the cost charged to you is the net cost to us for repairing the scratch or scrape, mostly done in-house to keep costs down. Most importantly we deal with all the hassle of dealing with third parties and any damage to their boat.
Yes, we allow you to share your membership with one other person. In other words we allow two named skippers under one membership. This is normally a spouse or partner, but could be a friend, son or daughter, or business colleague.
There is no additional charge for sharing your membership, but there are some usage conditions where there are two independent skippers named. Shared FlexiSail membership is a great way to reduce cost and increase value.
Absolutely! Sailing with guests is much of the pleasure, be it family, friends, colleagues or other members.
Provided that you as ‘the named skipper member’ are on board, who you invite is entirely up to you. You can also still sail if you have not yet obtained your qualifications provided that you have a suitably qualified skipper who is in charge. In this situation, we need to have approved the skipper’s details and qualifications for insurance purposes prior to sailing.
All bookings start at 10am on Day 1. You then have the boat until 6pm on Day 2.
SimplySailing members can only book the two consecutive midweek days every 2-month rotation. There are no options to add additional days or book any weekend days.
If you’d like additional and/or weekend days, please refer to the usual FlexiSail membership plans.
