Termporary Mooring Field

The Geneva Lake Sailing School has secured a permit for temporary mooring field in front of the Yacht Club for the duration of the X Boat Inland Championship. Each club can have 2 moorings to be used for overnight coach boat storage (inflatable less than 20 ft.) and for staging of their X boats during launch, lunch break and retrieval process. This will allow for a faster and more seamless flow at the cranes.

Each club is responsible for bringing the anchor, chain, extra weight, and line appropriate for 15ft to 20ft of water. Also, the DNR requires the use of an official mooring buoy, i.e., a white ball with a reflective blue stripe.


Lunch Time Anchoring for X boats and coaches

There will be designated moorings for each team attending. Teams should plan to anchor coach and x boats during lunch breaks on Monday and Tuesday. Boats cannot anchor overnight.


Lunch time Mooring for Spectator boats

Boats that bring their own moorings can anchor during lunch hours. Spectator boats CAN NOT use moorings provided by LGYC. These are for X boats and coaches ONLY.  Note, spectator boats should not be left unattended.


Coach Boats

Coaches will be asked to provide transport of sailors to and from the mooring field. Overnight dockage on LGYC is for coach boats only. No spectator boats allowed overnight.


Power Boats/Spectator Boats Launching

You can launch at LGYC up to 2 hours prior to the earliest warning signal. No spectator boats can park at LGYC pier.
