Follow Up Notice to Slip Holders

Rob Whittemore on

Clubhouse News

Following up on a previous notice where we announced the prohibition of the use of space heaters aboard boats at the club, a committee has been formed to re-examine this issue and the board will be reviewing their recommendation at the next board meeting in February. If a “safe” heater standard is approved, all slip holders we receive an addendum to their lease which will need to be signed and returned to the club. 

Please realize we are trying to address a potential safety concern at our docks. 

As always please feel free to reach out to me with any questions.

Rob Whittemore on

Club News

All Jackson Creek slip holders will soon be receiving (or have received) their 2018 slip lease agreement. In a continuing effort to improve the quality of our operations and member experience, we have made some changes to the lease agreement. 

  1. The new lease will auto-renew and not need to be signed every year. Annual proof of insurance will still have to be submitted to the club.
  2. You will also notice the use of space heaters on any boat is now prohibited.
  3. Finally, the club now reserves the right to charge for electricity usage above and beyond a reasonable level. This change only applies to boats on the new east dock, which will have metered slips.

Additionally, we will also be ...

Saturday, January 20, 2018 – hosted by Hampton Yacht Club

Deadline for Registration – January 15, 2018

Also, the seminar meets the course requirements for folks wanting to certify (or re-certify) as a Club Race Officer.
