Prior to Arriving
If you are planning your visit to our club, we request minimum 48 hours notice so that we can ensure sufficient dock space and docking assistance is available. Please contact us through the club office or at email@example.com. You can also contact our Office at 905-668-1391.
Our reciprocal policy is two free nights. Additional nights can be provided at $1.10 per foot LOA. This offer is extended to all reciprocal clubs regardless of their particular policy.
Upon arrival we ask that all visitors report to the visitor’s dock located directly north of the clubhouse and report to the Officer of the Day who will assign you a dock. All visitors will be asked to present their club membership card and sign our visitor book. We also monitor Channel 68 and will do our best to assist you through that method to get you a spot at the Club.
Our finger docks are furnished with non-potable water and hydro. Our dock power connections are 15 Amp twist lock receptacles. Adapters are available in the Clubhouse free with a returnable deposit. In addition there is an available pumpout for use. Fuel is available across the harbour at Port Whitby Marina. Access to the Clubhouse for washroom and shower use is available with a temporary access code assigned upon arrival. BBQ’s are available for visitors' use free of charge - BBQing on your boat is not allowed while at WYC. See “The Club/Bar & Dining” for the current bar hours.
