Camelot’s Boat Policies

  • The object of being aboard Camelot is to have fun whilst being safe.
  • Everyone on board for more than a day is to read these policies and agree to abide by them.
  • Everyone on board needs to make the Skipper aware if they suffer from any illnesses or conditions that may be problematic including but not limited to:
    • Heart or respiratory Conditions
    • Sea Sickness
    • Fits of any types
    • Black outs
    • Dizzy spells
    • Asthma
    • Epilepsy
    • Diabetes
    • Allergies to Penicillin, Aspirin or anything else
    • Other (please provide adequate information)
      (Note that the Skipper will keep this information strictly confidential)
  • Likewise, everyone on board needs to make the skipper aware of all prescribed medicines they are taking.
  • Everyone is to wear a PFD when at sea and outside at night.
  • We will generally reef down each night (unless it is very calm and relatively windless).
  • If you are unsure about anything at all, you must consult the skipper. What may seem trivial may turn out to be something significant.
  • When allocated a night watch, you must keep a good lockout at least once every 5 minutes (360 degree scan plus look at rigging and sails from the safety of the cockpit). You must wake the skipper if conditions change significantly or if you are unsure of something you have seen or are experiencing.
  • When at sea, nobody leaves the cockpit without letting someone else know where they are going. At night, nobody leaves the cockpit unless it is absolutely necessary and we need two other people on deck before someone goes forward.
  • Nothing goes in the toilets other than (a small amount of) toilet paper and what comes naturally out of your body. If you block the toilet you are responsible for clearing it.
  • If you get sick whilst at sea please throw up into a bucket – do not throw up over the rails as you may fall in.
  • On extended voyages boat showers are the order of the day. Please ask what a “boat shower” is.
  • Please make every effort to conserve both fresh water and electricity. Both take diesel to produce.
  • Please try and keep salt water out of the boat. Briefly shower and wash feet whenever you are going from the ocean to the inside of the boat.
  • Everyone is expected to equally help out with the day to day chores – cooking, cleaning and sailing tasks. Its not that sort of holiday!!
  • Put things back in the exact same spot you found them. If you think there is somewhere better to put something then discuss it with the skipper.
