Winter Storage/Beach Closing

Due 12/15
We are a little over a month away from Beach closing. Winter storage is now in effect. Fees are $120 payable before 12/15. If you have a trailer, the boat must be on it or you will be charged for both items. We want to be able to store all who would like their boats. Make sure your mast is down or the club will do it for $50 and if your boat is moved by the club it will be $100. All boats must be off the beach prior to 11/11. We have had some discussion on boats being sailed after that date. When finalized, the details will be released.

An extra special thank you to Scott Rathburn, Emily Rathburn, Bill Raska, and Vic Simon for going above and beyond getting the boats going and making sure the program was a success!
