  1. The only motor launch allowed on the loch is the Club's designated Safety Launch

  2. Megaphones should only be used if required for safety purposes, or during regattas held by the Club.  Cox boxes may be used, but the volume should be kept to a minimum.

  3. Care should be exercised when refueling outboard motors (e.g., using funnels and catch alls) to prevent pollution to the loch.

  4. Boats should keep away from nesting areas, or areas populated by geese, ducks, etc.
