Mooring Field

The Rear Commodore oversees the Club-owner mooring field and all of the boats within it which are all subject to the current mooring rules and regulations as determined by the Town of Orleans' Harbormaster. The field accommodates the Club's own fleet of sail/power boats and also provides moorings for up to twenty (20) current members' boats. For more information on the mooring field, please refer to the House Rules in the Members Only section (requires login). A Club dinghy is available for access to moored boats.
