The main docking facility at the Club is a fixed wharf system utilizing a pile structure. Berthing is side on and end on, depending on the size of the yacht. Many of the end on berths also have cat walks for easier access and safety. There is capacity for approximately 133 yachts at the wharves and visitors are welcome. All berths have access to fresh water and power. Visitors are encouraged to call ahead by phone or on channel 68 VHF to book a spot.
Members or visitors can refuel with diesel or gasoline during regular hours or whenever the bar is open at the dockside fuel pumps located at the outside end of the channel quay in front of the Club. This is a self-service facility. To obtain keys and complete the required paperwork go to the Club Bar or contact the Club’s Yard Master.
The RNYC has storage for boats that wish to be placed on the hard for the winter months. Members are permitted full access to do work and there are several companies who will come on site to provide services and supplies. We encourage visiting yachts to stay for the winter and take advantage of these services. Arrangements can also be made for boat storage for extended periods to accommodate cruising plans. Boats can also be left in the water over winter at owner’s risk.
The RNYC has a full yard service and can lift out pleasure boats up to 50 tons. The Travel Lift can be used for emergency repairs or to place boats for extended storage. Boats with suitable cradles can be shunted around the yard by means of a lifting dolly and a small tractor. These units are used together each fall and spring when the boats are stored for the winter months. During the summer months boats are often lifted for repairs or cleaning prior to race events.
Adjacent to the main breast works along the channel to the sea is a hydraulic mast lifting crane that can be used to remove the spar from most boats that are berthed at the Club. It can also be used for engine removal and repairs to rigging while the boat is in the water.
It is a Club policy that for winter storage all spars must be removed . This is due to the extreme icing and wind conditions experienced in our area. All spreaders must be removed from masts due to restrictions on available space for storing spars. Three mast racks are available on which masts may be stored
The Learn to Sail program at the RNYC covers the entire range of keelboating levels. We offer courses for individuals who have never sailed, up to experienced boaters looking to complete their Yachtmaster Ocean certification.
