Visiting our Club
Castine Yacht Club is a private club dedicated to the encouragement of yachting in our Town. The use of our facilities is not offered on a commercial basis, but rather as a courtesy extended to visitors from other yacht clubs. To help cover our costs we ask visiting yachtsmen to contribute according to the schedule below and to kindly observe our rules.
MOORINGS Five guest moorings are available for the use of visiting yachtsmen at their own risk. These are marked by white round floats with blue bands and are marked CYC GUEST # 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. The maximum overall length of boats on each CYC mooring are:
#1: 20 feet; #2: 30 feet; #3: 40 feet; #4: 28 feet; #5: 38 feet
There is a 24 hour time limit on each. Please see the Yacht Club staff for assistance. A contribution of $35 per night is customary. We do not accept reservations for moorings. Credit cards, cash or checks are accepted.
SHOWERS Hot showers are available on the ground floor of the Clubhouse. The Club is generally open from 0800 to 2000. Five dollars ($5.00) per person is requested. This contribution should be given to the Club staff directly or placed in the slot of the door of the downstairs office.
GARBAGE Please deposit garbage (trash), sealed in plastic garbage bags only, in the trash bin at the bottom of the back staircase. There is a second bin for returnable bottles and cans. Because the Town of Castine charges us for waste disposal, we ask that you contribute $3.00 per bag. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us keep the Club neat.
