Outboard Motors; Re-fueling; Service Dock Usage

It is wonderful to see our harbour filling up with boats! As you enjoy your boats, a few quick reminders: Outboard motors do need to be left in the down position while in the harbour (hazard to other boats); please do not fuel your motors at your slip; and, service docks use is for limited periods only – please refer to the placards posted at those docks.

Members, we are fortunate to have a good season ahead to enjoy our boats. With the warmer weather, upriver outings and sunset sails await! The yard access plan is working well and members are encouraged to come to the club to prepare and launch their boats.
