Update on Flood Situation 2019 (22 May)

As of 22 May, the water levels around NSC continue to slowly recede, but remain high. The North Crane is now operational but the South Crane is not as of yet. Electrical power has been restored to most of the yard. Members are permitted to begin launching their boats and are encouraged to contact the Service Providers now to begin launching boats. Note that vehicle traffic into the yard is restricted to only those members launching their boats on trailers. more…

The earliest date for club launch will be not before 1 June

The earliest date for Club Launch (Commercial Launch) remains 1 June 2019. This is an estimate based on the rate the water is receding and the preparation required for a safe launch process. If members have a boat on a trailer in the yard, they are asked to make sure the trailer is ready to move as soon as possible. This means no jacks or blocks underneath, all covers completely removed, no hitch locks and the tires are checked. Plans for the Group Trailer Launch are tentatively being made for Saturday, or Sunday, 25 or 26 May 2019. more…

Navigation by non-emergency vessels, is strictly prohibited.  This includes all pleasure craft and human-powered craft, such as canoes or kayaks. Until this ban is lifted, members are prohibited from taking their boats outside the confines of the NSC harbour.  An inquiry has been made to Transport Canada Marine Safety division requesting when, or under what conditions, the ban will be lifted.
