DayBoats (Capris 22)
These are our stock day boats that are sturdy, easy to sail and hard to mess up. One of the boats is slightly different in that it is a Catalina 22 (can you spot the difference?) but they all sail very much the same. In order for everyone to enjoy their time on the water and prevent problems when the boats are waiting on the mooring, we have some rules as to how to secure them, get on and off the mooring and to keep them ready for everyone to have a good time ont he water.
