Edgewood Yacht Club Storm Policy   


EYC Marina and Anchorage Policy Rules & Regulations: In the event of a major storm, boats left in the marina are likely to sustain damage and also cause damage to the marina itself. To minimize the risk of damage to member and club property, it is the policy of the club that members remove their boats from the marina when a storm is imminent.    

Definition of Storm: By “storm”, this policy means a hurricane warning posted by the National Weather Service for the area between Watch Hill, RI and Woods Hole, MA including Narragansett Bay.   

Member’s Responsibility for Boats in Marina: Members with boats in the marina must remove their boats at least 6 hours before the storms anticipated landfall as reported by the National Weather Service. If a member is not available to remove the boat, it is the responsibility of the member to make arrangements to ensure that the boat is out of the marina. The club will not take responsibility for removing or securing members boats.    

Member’s Responsibility for Boats in the Mooring Field: The club assumes no liability for the security of moorings or related tackle during a storm. Owners are reminded that they are responsible for damage caused by their boat to other boats. Members may leave boats on EYC moorings at their own risk.    

Small Boats: All small boats on docks, including, but not limited to: sunfish, dinghies, inflatable’s, lasers, 420’s must be moved to higher ground or totally removed from the marina.   In the event of a storm any vacant mooring will be made available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Arrangements must be made thru the Club Office. Mooring requests should be made to Club Facility Director, Mike McKenna, 401-781-9626.  The Club will do its best to assign open moorings based on boat size/weight.   Boats left on EYC moorings are at the boat owner’s risk.   It is the responsibility of boat owners to insure that their boats are well secured and do not pose a hazard to other boats.   

In the event of a severe storm warning, immediate arrangements should be made to move your boat to a mooring or safe harbor. The Harbormaster or the Coast Guard can assist you with questions you may have concerning available moorings and charts to safe harbors.    

Please Note: Edgewood Yacht Club launch does not operate after Small Craft Warnings Have Been Posted.
