On behalf of the Commodore, Officers, and Members of The Whitby Yacht Club, I am pleased to extend to you reciprocal privileges for this year’s sailing season.
Our club is situated on the southwest shore of Whitby Harbour. Care should be exercised whilst approaching our visitor’s check-in dock, keeping the red conical buoys to starboard. Our check-in dock is located directly north of the clubhouse. We monitor channel 68.
On Behalf of the Board of Directors and Members of The Whitby Yacht Club we are pleased to offer reciprocal privileges to the members of your club for the 2015 sailing season.
Our reciprocal policy is two free nights. Additional nights can be provided at $1.10 per foot LOA. This offer is extended to all reciprocal clubs regardless of their particular policy. Please post the attached card at your club.
Upon arrival we ask that all visitors report to the visitor’s dock located directly north of the clubhouse and report to the Officer of the Day who will assign you a dock. All visitors will be asked to present their club membership card and sign our visitor book. We also monitor Channel 68 and will do our best to assist you through that method to get you a spot at the Club.
A shopping plaza is now open at the intersection of Gordon St and Victoria St. It is a short walk from the Club. It offers many services including banking, a pub and dining, fast food, groceries (Metro), LCBO and more. There are a number of businesses on the north east side of the harbour including the Town of Whitby Marina, Port Whitby Marine and The Lake Grill restaurant. We are also serviced by regular buses and local taxi.
Our finger Docks are furnished with non-potable water and hydro. Our dock power connections are either 15 or 20 Amp twist lock receptacles. Adapters are available in the Clubhouse free with a returnable deposit. Pump out is available at $15 per use. Fuel is available across the harbour at Port Whitby Marina.
Afterhours access to the Clubhouse is via a combination locked door at the East End of the clubhouse, where the washrooms and showers are located. BBQ’s are available for visitor’s use free of charge. See “The Club/Bar & Dining” for the current bar and restaurant hours.
The Town of Whitby is a short bus, taxi or bike ride away (Don’t be afraid to ask a member for a lift!).
We look forward to receiving you as visitors and hope that you enjoy your time spent at The Whitby Yacht Club.
Yours Truly. Past Commodore.
