Cruising Station Rules

The Cruising Station Rules are different from the Outstation Rules.

Please read both carefully to make sure you understand them. This will avoid disappointment and misunderstandings.

The important dates for the Cruising Season are:
  • May 1 - September 30 for Telegraph Harbour Marina.
  • October 16 - April 14 For Saltspring Marina.

You must have your current Membership Card or you will not be allowed to stay under the Cruising Station arrangements. The marina will not phone or otherwise contact the Membership Officer to confirm your membership.

This outline is intended to provide the parameters for the agreement between the Royal City Yacht Club (RCYC) and Telegraph Harbour Marina (THM)

RCYC will provide guidelines to its membership as to the usage of the cruising station and will be responsible for enforcing guidelines below as follows:
  1. Each member will be allowed to stay for two nights including power during the Cruising Season.
  2. Long weekends are a minimum of 2-day stay. The Blackout dates for 2021 are Labour Day Long weekend (Friday September 3rd, Saturday September 4th, and Sunday September 5th, 2021). If you wish to stay there at that time you will have to pay for your moorage. 
  3. Members must book a reservation with the marina and provide their name, contact number, boat name, LOA and credit card number and expiry date to guarantee the reservation. Nothing gets put through on the card and the 24-hour cancellation policy applies.
  4. All members must present their valid RCYC membership card upon registration at the Marina office.
  5. All members must abide to the rules and regulations of the marina, as would any paying guest.

The marina will provide moorage on an “as available” basis to RCYC members up to the amount of unused funding. Additionally the marina will:
  1. Ensure that anyone claiming moorage under the RCYC cruising station are in fact RCYC members for 2021 by inspecting their valid 2021 membership card. No card, no moorage, no exceptions.
  2. Keep a separate record of all moorage credited by recording the date, the name of the RCYC member, the name of the boat and LOA of the boat. This record shall be sent to RCYC designate at the end of September 2021.
  3. Moorage & power rates for May1, 2021 through September 30th are $1.75/foot/day & $9/day for 1X30 amp power outlet respectively.
  4. The marina will only charge the RCYC cruising station fund for moorage and power. Any and all other charges such as cancellation charges (if any) are to be paid for by the boater and not RCYC.
  5. It is the marina’s responsibility to ensure that every boater is aware of any rules and regulations that the marina requires boaters to comply with and to undertake its own enforcement. RCYC assumes no liability to the marina other than to make payment for moorage under the agreement. RCYC is to be notified if any of its members violate any rules or regulations.
  6. The marina will always allow drop-in moorage when space is available without a reservation.
