Visiting us by Water
A Message from our Commodore:
May 25, 2017: As a result of the current high lake water levels the EYC Board of Directors has concluded that the Club is unable to accommodate visiting boats at this time. EYC will be closed to visitors until further notice, during which time the Club will continue to monitor the conditions.
Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to welcoming you again very soon.
- The entrance to our Harbour is located at N 43,36.6 / W 79,29.0
- Once inside the harbour proper, Etobicoke Yacht Club is located to your Starboard, immediately beyond the lighthouse, at the southwest end of the harbour. Our neighbour, Mimico, lies straight ahead at the east end of the harbour.
Enter the Channel…
On your starboard, at the inside point, you’ll see the retired lighthouse beyond which our docks come into view.
The first dock is “D”, dutifully followed by “C”, “B” and “A”.
All slips are numbered from shore out with even numbers on the north side and odd numbers on the south side.
The visitor dock lies between “A” and “B” docks, near shore, on your port. If you have not yet been assigned a dock, tie up here and report to the duty office on the lower floor of the clubhouse.
Caution in approaching the EYC/MCC harbour entrance…
- The private green buoy, just south of the harbour entrance, at N 43,36.534 / W 79,28.047 replaces the AWOL Government Buoy charted at N 43,36.62 / W 79,29.04. The buoy sits in 15′ of water but guards a rocky shoal.
- Although visitors coming from the east should beware, this definitely applies to those approaching the entrance from the south or west. Do NOT hug the shoreline.
