Boats stored in the yard must be mobile, please maintain your trailer in roadworthy condition. Use hand dollies to move your boat to reduce damage to the asphalt in the yard. Return any dollies or hoist bridles when finished using your boat.
Boats should be in sailable condition, with masts raised during Summer Dry Sail Storage. The yard is intended for active use, not long-term storage. If you don’t sail frequently, please make arrangements to store your boat off-site.
All masts must be down and secured to your boat for Winter Dry Sail Storage. Boats must be secured to their trailer. Tie off your halyards to reduce nuisance noise for neighbors.
Please do not use concrete blocks as props or chocks – use wood or plastic chocks, buckets or similar for props.
Vehicles are allowed inside the outer gates along the water’s edge for pick-up and drop-off only. NO vehicles are allowed inside the inner gates. Use a hand dolly to maneuver your trailer into position.
All boats must have WPSA stickers on the boat or trailer.

If you store your sails/rigs in the sail shed, make sure it is neatly stowed on racks and clearly marked with your last name and sticker number.
Please close the gates and lock up, turn off the lights when you leave. Do NOT assume the next person will do it.
