DrySail Tips and Hints
Good things to know
Each boat has its allocated boat spot.
When catamarans and dinghies are stored in their boat spot they should be tied to the ground with boat anchors so that they do not blow away or pivot into the next boat.
Trailers are stored in the central area and should be tied down so they do not roll.
Vehicle parking is against the south fence, or in the parking area at the northwest part of the DrySail area.
Dollies are stored by the beach.
Electrical outlets are available on the lampposts and the front of the DrySail building.
Water outlets/hoses are available by the beach and at the DrySail building.
All boats that are stored in the DrySail area must be sailable.
As a courtesy and for safety we do not frequent the club during keelboat haul-out in the fall and keelboat launch in the spring.
Any dry sail member may be requested to do a buoyancy test of their boat. Failure of the buoyancy test may rescind your boat’s storage privileges.
Don’t leave your hatch covers open as those cute raccoons like to get inside the hulls and make a little home.
Every spring the roadway is graded – this is coordinated by the Director Grounds.
Water (DrySail building plumbing and hose taps) is turned off for the winter to ensure that the pipes do not freeze. Water is turned back on for the DrySail launch weekend.
Every fall we put the boats on trailers and snug them up at the south part of the DrySail area, to make space for keelboats on cradles (every winter keelboats come out of the water to not freeze).
