Launch

WHEN: APRIL 22, 23 and 29

TIME: Tenders will be leaving the city at 0715 and 0745. Please arrive on time. The first boat launches at 0800.

ROAD CLOSURES: There is planned construction and road closures in the downtown area during Launch and alternative travel routes may be necessary. The eastbound York-Bay-Yonge Gardiner Expressway off-ramp will be closed starting April 17th, and the Don Valley Parkway will be closed from April 21st to 24th. Please anticipate increased congestion and traffic delays.   

Launch is mandatory for all senior members and highly encouraged for all other members as a great opportunity to get to know the club and claim work hours. Everyone’s help is vital to the success of Launch. If you absolutely cannot attend all Launch days, email me the names of a designated skipper and crew to launch your boat. Unnecessary cross-hauls may result in a fee charged to the member.

As a reminder, please ensure your boat and cradle and the area around your cradle are clear of everything but essential gear. A ladder is OK but please ensure the ladder is NOT locked to your cradle or boat. You should have lines to the cradle, must have PFDs a life ring and dock lines on board, and all through-hull fittings plugged or connected.

Safety Boots must be worn at all times in the Yard and alcohol is not permitted during Launch. Work gear and gloves are strongly advised. 

All fees must be paid in order to be launched.

If you have any questions or if this is your first Launch please send me an email at yard@qcyc.ca.

Looking forward to a great season, Cheers everyone! Trevor
