Best thing I to do IMO is if you can drive past the club on the way to the other club to sign on, don't even bother with the beaching...

Buy a second trolley to leave at the other club, stored up on its end against a wall somewhere it would not take up any space.  All depends on what the layout of the club is and how far it would be from the water if you stored it like this.

Well done!
Bleeding obvious answer, why didn't the rest of us say it first?

I'm with THUNT.  Stop at the second club on your way in, sign up, then go on to your main site and get on the water.

Alternatively, go to your main club a little earlier and get ready, then take a stroll up the coast to sign on.  If it is only 1km away it can't take more than 30 mins for the round trip.

Umm, what are you going to do with your boat whilst you go and get the trolley?  Get someone to hold it for you?  Might as well sign on while you're collecting the trolley...

Ahem, yep, I've overlooked  that the whole reason was to sign on... Of course you're right if it was a quick task... If it was to use club facilities during say a lunch break between races then perhaps the 2nd trolley idea is spot on.

As I said, this all depends on the layout of the club and its dinghy parks... Chances are there will be some people rigging their boats on the beach who would happily hold your boat or go grab your trolley.  

Also I assume it isnt just signing on which is the problem but also signing off. So the trolley makes more sense if it is used twice each time you sail.  

Perhaps if you go round there one day and have a beer with some of the sailors and hint that it would be nice if one of them could walk your trolley down each day when they arrived at the club to rig up.  I'm sure someone would help you out.

We have a similar problem at our club where the sailors from the club on the other side of the river come and join in with our dinghy racing.  They usually provide a RIB for safety cover so the rib delivers a sheet to the club which all of their sailors have used to sign on.  This works very well.  

My other question would be why do you not keep your boat at the other club?
