A Mooring Team schedule for 2020 has been e-mailed out to all members. Please review and ensure you are aware of when you are up. The teams are made up of (2) members, with at least one already experienced in operating the mooring mover. There are pre-determined dates, once per month, on Saturday mornings. Unless there is an emergency, this is when mooring work will be completed. Please confirm with Harbour Master prior to showing up for work, in case something may have changed.
Please check your e-mail for this schedule. If you haven’t received an e-mail, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org
Note : Members may request to use on their own (i.e. for bi-annual mooring inspection) but this still requires Harbour Master approval.
Bruce Herrington – Rear Commodore
Dana Nordstrom – Harbour Master

Please be advised that, due to on-going physical distancing requirements from the Province, members will need to rig their moorings by themselves or with someone within their own ‘household bubble’. This will require more workboat trips than normal so please make plans to get this done sooner rather than later. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Harbour Master (Dana Nordstrom) or myself.
Due to the social distancing guidelines from the provincial and federal governments, the following restrictions are in place regarding the use of the Renforth Boat Club facilities. Please keep these in mind when planning any trips to the club.
Admittance of Members only for the express purpose of performing vessel maintenance
No grouping or socializing; vessel and/or property maintenance only
Work parties limited to maximum of (5) people
Maximum of (2) persons in clubhouse at any one time
Maximum of (1) person in outbuildings at any one time
2 meter distancing to be observed by members at all times, in all situations
Happy thanksgiving and that means it is time to wrap up the boating season.
The last of the boats for RBC storage are now on shore and that means it is time for all boats be hauled out and all moorings winterized. Check in the Member Section of the website and find winterizing mooring instructions. Please remember to ensure your mooring tag is secured to your top chain and cleaned off. These tags have proven to be essential to mooring identification and greatly improves spring launch. Should you need floating winter (yellow) rope, there is rope available. Record your name and length of rope on the form in the Heritage Building.
The deadline for mooring winterizing is Oct 20. At that time all temporary floats/buoys will be removed leaving just your floating line. YOU ARE RESPOSIBLE FOR YOUR MOORING.
The dock trailer is on the wharf and that means the docks will be hauled out sometime during the week as soon a the crane can be scheduled. Any dinghies left will have to be moved to the public wharf along with the workboat.
Once the docks are finished haulout and all floats/buoys are removed, the workboat will be hauled out and winterized. The deadline is Oct 20.
Consult the Harbourmaster or Rear Commodore should you have any questions or concerns.

The plan is to haul out the gallows , the workboat and reposition the tee-section of the dinghy docks to the South side of the wharf or lee-side beginning @ 4P.M. today. The remaining sections dinghy docks will be quite vulnerable in this projected gale and you would all be wise to consider taking your individual dinghies ashore and out of harm’s way until the weather subsides.

Also be aware that work on the Gallows is in progress to install new pontoons. Do not block access to the winch house area. Thanks
