COVID has created some special challenges for our Marine Department. While we all hope to adhere to this Launch Schedule, COVID is, and has been, unpredictable, and we may need to adjust the Launch Schedule throughout the boating season. Please check our Club website for any changes. A notification of changes will also be sent by email.

COVID state regulations and best practices for safety are evolving. In early April 2021, we’ll update and advise on the rules on and around the docks and our launches.  For now, the 2020 rules below remain in effect:
