KNS has a fleet of five J70 and three J80 boats that can be used by KNS members that have basic sailing skills. With our annual Boatpool membership fee of NOK 5500,- (2022) boats can be booked for regatta sailing, training or leisure. Seasonal maintenance of the boats is included. The season is normally between April 1st and November 1st.
Our Boatpool members have access to more than just boats, they are a part of a sailors’ network where they also meet new crew members and friends.
Boatpool members under 35 years of age, can for an extra annual fee of NOK 500,- become a member in our J70 League and Regatta Group and take part in their weekly practices and regattas. Regatta group
This spring (2022) we also have a training regatta every wednesday. Read more here
The goal of the Boatpool arrangement is promote keelboat sailing broadly among our members. The boats can be used for both leisure and regatta sailing. We also think that boat ownership in the future will be more based on sharing than owning.
Boatpool members have the opportunity to form racing teams on their own as well as to participate in organized training and regatta sailing. KNS aims to replace the boats in the Boatpool every 5 years. Five J70 and four J80 boats respectively are available today.
Members of the KNS Boatpool also have the opportunity to represent KNS at regattas Internationally during the winter
How to join
Joining KNS Boatpool is easy. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
You can join with your team (all team members must be member of KNS and have a Boatpool subscription), or you can join alone.
In 2021 we had 7 sailors who joined the boatpool alone. KNS will provide the contact information for other boatpool members so they can get in touch, find new teammates and plan training.
During the weekends (Fri-Sun) boatpool members have free access to four J80 boats. A boatpool member can book the boat and bring guest that are not boatpool members.
How it works
KNS Boatpool members must be registered before they can use the boats. Registration to the Boatpool requires an annual membership fee, KNS membership and basic sailing knowledge.
A general introduction program is provided to new users after registration. Thereafter, users are given access to use the boats using KNS online booking system. A Boatpool Facebook group is established to promote exchange and discussions among Boatpool users.
Use the boats in regattas
The boats can be used in local regattas. To use the boat in regattas such as Grundig Sailing Cup, Grundig Hankø Race Week and Kongens Serieseilaser you just have to book the boat in the booking system.
It is also possible to use the boats in regattas outside of Oslo. Please contact Karl, email@example.com for more information.
