We spent a few nights here last year and had a terrific experience. Not so great this year. I believe the YC was late getting things going this year due to Covid-19 and the phased reopening of the State. However, they knew that and should have put out information to that effect. For example, they were still finishing up a huge shower project and showers had not been inspected and permitted for use. We were told we could use them at our own risk. Upon closer inspection, we found the showers to be filthy and pretty much unusable for that reason. Also, the club advertises that wi-fi is available which is untrue as far as transients are concerned as far as we can tell. Transients are generally put on the far dock and the internet signal does not reach that far. Supposedly Comcast has been unable to find a way to extend the signal that far. Location is handy to the village and restaurants, club members are friendly, but we feel the club should have used the message area in the Dockwa reservation request form to warn of current short-comings. We were able to use the gas grills available on the premises and some of the restaurants will deliver to the YC if going to the village is inconvenient.
Our stay was great. First time at the dock there; we've visited Cuttyhunk many times over many years of sailing and now power boating, but have always stayed on a mooring. One of the assistant harbor-masters was very helpful getting us into the slip. Most of the other boaters at the dock were friendly and sociable, adding to the enjoyment. We appreciated the ease of being tethered to the shoreline in order to walk about at will, get lunch at the Café (great clam chowder) and some terrific stuffed quahogs from the Raw Bar delivered to the boat. One of our passengers is greatly affected by the heat and humidity, so being hooked to shore power to run the A/C was a necessity. First time at the docks, but not the last!
Prior to arrival, we spoke with the dockmaster about slip preferences and he was very accommodating. When we arrived, dock hands were there to assist us. Everyone was very friendly and marina has showers and a restaurant on the premises. The marina provided with a folder full of information about the facility and the village which was right out their "front door". Had a great lunch at Farm and Coast.
Received an email from Edgartown Harbormaster before departure with a lot of information about the process once we arrive, the harbor, harbor services and the town. When we arrived at called as instructed we were given our mooring assignment. Easy pickup from bucket-style moorings. Called for pump-out services one day while there; prompt response and very good service. Enjoyed the town as well where all shopkeepers were friendly and welcoming and very customer service oriented.
