The Club is open from Commissioning to Decommissioning. The PYC grounds and all facilities are open 7am - sundown, except by prior approval of the Board of Governors.

The Club facilities are available for reservation for member and member-sponsored nonmember events. Contact the Vice Commodore for reservations and availability. Gas grills are available for members’ use at all times.
3. Docks & Grounds: Members and their immediate families are welcome to use the docks, ramps, and grounds at any time during Club Operating Hours. We request the club docks not be occupied for extended or overnight usage, as this may result in damage to the boats or docks from motorboat wakes and interfers with the Sailing Academy and other member activities. No jet skis are to be launched, docked or stored at the club.
4. Parking: Members must not park automobiles in the public road or adjacent to the clubhouse. Members’ boats being stored ashore must be placed only in the designated area just south of the automobile parking lot.
5. Members’ Boat Moorings: Members must work with the Essex Harbor Master and their mooring service provider to secure (inspect mooring prior to installation) and maintain a mooring in the Meadows Mooring field.
6. Member-Owned Boats: Members’ boats must have a PYC sticker affixed. Pettipaug Yacht Club is not responsible or liable for the condition, maintenance or policing of member-owned boats. Members’ boats must not be stored on club premises during the winter months. Power and sailboats over twenty feet are not allowed storage on PYC grounds. No empty trailers may be stored on the grounds. All boats need to be on movable trailers for purposes of mowing.
7. Members’ Personal Property: Members are responsible for securing their personal property in a storm. Personal property stored on club premises are the owner’s responsibility and must be removed by the Fall Work Party. Items left after 90 days will be subject to removal and disposal.
8. Dogs: Dogs must be leashed and under owner control at all times. No dogs are allowed on club grounds during Pettipaug Sailing Academy activities. Dogs are not allowed in the clubhouse or on the clubhouse deck. Owners are responsible to pick up (waste/toys) after their dogs.
9. PYC Storm Preparation: A member is liable for damages caused by their property to club or member-owned property if not secured properly. Members should not assume that volunteers and/or Board members will be able to deal with members’ private property. See PYC Yearbook for a “Checklist" of what to do during a storm alert.
10. Use of PYC/PSA-Owned Boats: PSA may have C420s to borrow for club racing during the PSA season. A Release & Indemnity Waiver is available at the clubhouse and must be signed confirming one’s ability to handle the boat and accepting responsibility for any damage or loss of equipment resulting in its use. To borrow a boat, contact the PSA Chair.
