Dear Boat Owners,
The sailing season has gone by in a big hurry and here we are in September with the kids gone back to school. Now it’s time to haul the boats out and put them to bed for the winter.
Due to the ongoing guidelines for COVID-19 safety, we ask all boat owners to bring their boats to the Blue Crane at the required time. BYC Harbour Staff will then handle the haul out and crane operation to ensure physical distancing protocols are maintained. A reminder that masks are to be worn when physical distancing cannot be facilitated as per the Ottawa Public Health Temporary Mandatory Bylaw.
The big boat haulout has been scheduled for Wednesday October 7, 2020. If you are not able to attend on that day, please arrange to have a representative attend in your place and please inform the office who you have authorized to act for you. Boats will not be hauled in the absence of the owner or authorized representative. Powerboats must have their own blocking materials and jack stands ready on the day – the Club will not supply these materials and will not haul the boats if this equipment in not at hand.
Kindly review the BYC Code of Conduct to refresh yourself on all current restrictions and protocols.
