Launch Service and Last Day
As the Fall boating season comes to a close, we are giving Members more flexibility during these challenging times by keeping the launch schedule hours extended as follows:

Sunday - Thursday 8am to 6pm
Friday - Saturday 8am to 8pm

Sunday, November 1st will be the last day of launch service. Please plan on removing all boats from the mooring field, and small boats, kayaks, paddle boards, Junior Sailing dinghies, etc. stored at the Club, by end of day Sunday, November 1.

Boat Removal and Frost Biting 
When removing your boat from the mooring field, please contact the Dockmaster or the launch driver to let them know you are leaving for the season. The marine staff is starting to haul moorings from the mooring field and knowing that your boat has left for the season will expedite the process. Please contact the Dockmaster at Dockmaster@StamfordYC.com if you have a special request.

Only boats participating in Frostbiting this winter can remain after Sunday, November 1.
