Indoor Lift Out of Order

Please be advised that the indoor lift at the Club is out of order until further notice. Technicians have been contacted and maintenance is underway. We apologize for this inconvenience and will provide an update when the lift is operational.

Yellow Permanent Race Marks Retrieved

In case you are wondering where they went, the majority of the yellow private race marks have been safely hauled out and stored for the winter, to prevent loss due to ice floes. Only Mark S remains in place for this winter, as its anchor could not be lifted. All marks will be redeployed in the spring per this chart.

Call for Members Interested in Co-operative Mast Un-stepping

In preparation for haul out, members can join one of the co-op mast un-stepping groups. Participants are expected to help each other from start to finish and be fully vaccinated. Boats need to arrive with sails off, lines ready, mast supports available and turnbuckles loose. If interested, please RSVP on one of the listed dates (below the ‘more’) to Parke Davis parke.davis.pd@gmail.com and Mike Roper mike@rfspecialists.ca. more…

Mast Rack Winter Storage Procedures

NSC provides storage for masts on racks for boats that have masts that overhang to a point that impedes storage and for masts that do not fit under covers only. Owners need to pick up an identification tag from the front office which must be attached to the mast when on the racks. All masts must have spreaders removed as well as radar and all other protrusions. All Rigging and furling systems are to be securely taped and wrapped to the mast.

Fall Yard Closure (Weekdays) Starts on 12 October 2021

To allow for safe and efficient movement of service providers and members during the haul out period, the yard will be closed to vehicle traffic on weekdays between 0800 hrs and 1600 hrs starting Tuesday, 12 October. Carts will be available at the main and West gates. Vehicles will be able to access the yard on weekends and outside these closure timings.
