Boat Moorage and Mooring Buoy Information
The Vernon Yacht Club presently has 285 mooring slips most of which are full service. Of these slips, one is designated for visitors one for the Heaven Can Wait boat, one for the Search and Rescue Fire Boat and one for the Auxiliary Coast Guard Boat. Members are asked to notify the Club when they are out of their slip for the weekend to make room for extra visitors’ slips during the high season.
There is an area allocated specifically for year-round moorage that remains hooked up to power and members are charged for their usage during the winter months. The moorage is well lit, is under surveillance and is watched by security personnel. Access to moorage is by key card only and card keys are for members use only.
A limited number of visitor slips are available for guests from other clubs, please see more detail below and in the linked documents. Prior arrangements can be with our Fleet Captain

To tie your boat you first need the right weight of line for your boat. Get into the habit of tying your boat as if a storm was on the way. Several boats came loose in a storm recently and could have been badly damaged if staff and volunteers had not been there to step in. Here is how to tie your boat:
