Boats larger than 50' should consider reserving dockage at the Town Dock (next door) and may be reached at 401-596-7807.

Each mooring is $60.00 per night, and includes launch service and use of the bar, restaurant, and shower facilities. You must fly your burgee during your visit to the WHYC. Check out time is 9:00 AM unless other arrangements are made with our launch office.

Rafting of two boats on the outer transient mooring may be allowed, but please check with our Launch Office first. The rate is $60.00 per night for each boat rafted.

Check In: You may contact us for mooring assignment on VHF channel 10 as you enter the channel from Stonington, CT, and be sure to fly your Club Burgee. Since we do not accept advance reservations, boats requesting additional moorings should contact our Launch Office as soon as they enter the channel.
