KNS has a fleet of J70 and J80 boats that can be used by KNS members that have basic sailing skills. With our annual Boatpool membership fee of NOK 5300,- 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.
KNS is the only sailing club in the Oslo fjord to offer access to boats less than 5 years old. 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. https://www.kns.no/kurs-og-trening/treningsgrupper/j-70-regattagruppe.
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 two J80 boats respectively are available today.
Members of the KNS Boatpool also have the opportunity to represent KNS at regattas internationally during the winter.
