Dredging Moorage Information

Greetings Sailors!

As you know, we will be dredging the marina this October.  The actual dredging will start October 1st and be finished before the end of October.  Although the dredging won’t start until October, there is a long list of things to do to prepare the site beforehand, including moving the clubhouse and all of the docks out of the dredging zone.  All of that preparatory work will happen at the end of August and during September.  During all of that time, and until the marina is put back together, WSC will effectively be closed.

For owners with boats stored in the lot, August 28th will be the last day you can sail your boat, have access to it, or move it.  If you want access to your boat at any point between August 29th and December 1st, please remove it from WSC property and store it off site.

Beginning August 29th, during the work party that day, we will start consolidating boats in the upper lot so there will be room in the lot for all the boats on the docks below.  We ask that those of you with boats stored in the lot ensure that your trailer or dolly is in serviceable condition so that your boat may be moved during this process.

All of the boats on the docks have to be off the docks before Monday Sept. 14th. This includes all wet moorage and boats/ kayaks on the dock racks next to the boat house. We plan to have sufficient room in the lot for boats currently on the docks to be stored there during the dredging project.  It is each boat owner’s responsibility to move his or her boat off the docks and into the lot (or off site).  Unfortunately, the club does not have extra trailers so if you don’t have a trailer, arrangements should be made ahead of time so you can meet the timeline described above.

If you do not heed the request to remove your boat from the docks, you must understand that WSC will not be responsible for anything that may happen to it.  Boats that remain on the docks may get damaged during the moving of the docks or at some point other during this entire process.  Be advised that the docks will be moored off site without guards or security against theft or vandalism.  By leaving your boat on the dock, you will be accepting all of these and any other risks.   Any damage, no matter what the cause, will not be the responsibility of WSC, its members, contractors, or anyone else except you.

In short, for owners with boats on the docks, the lot will be available for storing your boat beginning Sept. 1st.  You must have your boat off the dock and into the lot or off site before Sept 14th.  If you want to move your boat sooner than Sept. 1st, please contact Mitchell for a spot in the lot and a tag for your trailer.

Please contact Ian Sparkes if you have any question or concerns:  iansparkes03@gmail.com

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in making this go smoothly.
