We are located at 396 Pequot Avenue on the Thames River in New London, Ct, with direct access to Long Island Sound. TYC owns and maintains moorings on both Fishers Island and Block Island. We have a large white sandy beach and clubhouse and dock with launch service from 9 to 9 for our mooring field.

Sailing Catamaran - 44' X 25' X 4' Tied up to a ball here for what we intended to be a couple of nights while we explored Mystic and took care of some logistics in Groton. Our boat was large enough to be assigned to a "tub" - a flat type of mooring ball with two painters. We have a bridle, so we just clipped our lines through both painters. Reserved easy enough on Dockwa, then hailed TCY on VHF 71 and Father Rick came out on the launch and guided us to our "tub" mooring. Easy. Once we got tied up, though, we began to experience the most violent roll and chop we've had in a mooring field (and we're in a cat! You should've seen the monohulls!). We actually had drawers that weren't locked fly out of cabinets and bottles topple off galley surfaces on frequent wakes from passing speed boats. The dinghy dock also convulses violently, so much so that they've set up a system for members - a network of lines that allows them to connect their dinghy/tender fore and aft along a line that holds them away from the structure. We cancelled the final day of our reservation and continued up Long Island Sound partly because of the weather, but partly because the motion while moored was more than we like. The folks at TYC were great! Shout out to Beth - a life-time mariner who went out of her way to ensure we had what we needed to get provisioned and get to Mystic.
Everyone was helpful we were only there one night but we will stay there on our many trips east of our yacht club in New Haven.
We left our boat here for 5 days on a mooring to wait out a storm on our trip south. Cute little yacht club, if I lived in the area I’d join in a second! Nice spot to Leave a boat unattended. It’s a bit rough in the outer mooring field, but we did not sleep on the boat so it was a non issue. Jesse, the launch Capt. was such an awesome help!!! THANK YOU Jesse for all your assistance!!
