Mooring Permit Enforcement in Lloyd Harbor – On the weekend of July 24th many of our clubs and club members were notified by the Lloyd Harbor Bay Constable that the current policies for private and club moorings in Lloyd Harbor would be strictly enforced beginning August 1, resulting in fines and additional mooring fees for multiple boat usage of PRIVATE moorings. The Greater Huntington Council of Yacht and Boating Clubs interceded and was able to negotiate a compromise for the remainder of the 2021 boating season.

Yacht And Boating Council To The Rescue

Yacht And Boating Council To The Rescue – Huntington’s waterways are about to get a little bit safer. That’s because on Feb. 11 the Huntington Harbormaster’s office accepted a donation of a stokes basket from the Greater Huntington Council of Yachting and Boating Clubs (GHCYBC).

Boating & Safe Social Distancing

2020-08-25T08:10:12+00:00

Limit the people aboard to those family members you share your home with—no guests. Don’t raft up with other boats or pull up onto a beach close to another boat. Be careful to maintain a safe distance from others during activities like loading up at the marina or fueling. After doing anything that requires touching a multi-use marina or dock item disinfect by washing your hands or using a hand sanitizer as soon as possible.
