Opening Day Yacht Inspections

Yacht Inspection and Yacht Hospitality Information

There are two opportunities for showing off your vessel on Opening Day! You may enter into the Yacht Inspection Competition, or host Yacht Club members as a Hospitality Boat (or both!).

Yacht Inspection- Members are encouraged to prepare their vessels and request inspection. Yacht inspections will be conducted on Saturday, April 21, 2018, commencing at 0900. Inspected vessels must be open for Hospitality on Sunday after the ceremony. Members requesting inspection should be sure to obtain a copy of the “Requirements and Recommendations” checklist for inspected vessels, available online. Please include a short “boat bio” for the program.

Junior Member Yacht Inspections will be conducted on Sunday April 22 at 0900. Sign-up with John Fretwell.

Yacht Hospitality – “A Time Honored Tradition…” Yacht owners welcome members and friends aboard their vessels after the Opening Day Ceremony for camaraderie and good cheer. The Yacht Club will provide snacks and beverages to help entertain and refresh your guests. Balloons will be attached to identify your vessel. Your vessel name, boat bio and location will be listed in the Opening Day program. If you don’t have a slip at the club and would like to participate in Hospitality or Inspections, call the Dockmaster (619-758-6308) for a temporary slip.

The application deadline for submission is Monday, April 9, 2018.
