Restaurant /bar is nice. Slips are very large and only have 50A/250V available - bring an adapter if using 30A/120V. No dock hands.

My first time at the Club. Five boats in group. The ease of reservation, friendliness of staff, gracefulness thoughtfulness excellent. In particular Britney and Kevin. Each helped tremendously. If that is how they treat all, you are in great shape. Really everyone, including the staff at dinner. And the food/chef. We had we were welcomed to bring 14 people to dinner. All enjoyed the atmosphere, staff and food. Very impressed. If I lived closer, or to decide to do so would welcome an invitation to join.

We stayed overnight at the Cambridge Yacht Club on August 19, 2023 in slip K24. Overall, we had a nice experience, but have a few criticisms. This marina is a club, and has no dock staff. The references and publications are up-front about this fact, so be prepared to guide and dock yourself - not a big deal deal. The docks and pilings are worn and, in some spots, in need of replacement. There are no lines available for transients, so bring your own. There are few, if any, cleats, so be prepared to lasso tall pilings, and tie up creatively. The people (members) are friendly and accommodating (though a few were surprised that we were "transients"). We dined at the club restaurant which was very good, with excellent service. The bathroom and shower facilities were also very good. If you wish to have meals other than dinner at the yacht club, be prepared to walk 20 minutes into the center of town, where there are bar and restaurant choices - pretty walk. The marina is well protected from waves, but not from westerly winds.

Marina Response:
Thanks for your input, Mark. Our volunteers are always working to upgrade our docks. Replacing boards is a never-ending process. Mother Nature and all that... We most certainly welcome "transients." If there were any surprised looks this past weekend when you were here, it was because we were hosting the annual Gov. Hicks Cup Log Canoe sailboat races. Always a wild time! Hope you enjoyed the party.

To be honest ... peasantly surprised. Received an email from the Fleet Captain prior to our arrival outlining our berthing/slip assignment, bathroom code, wifi password, restaurant hours, and what to expect/not expect. Do not expect dock hands to help you dock or undock. Do not expect VHF comms as you make your approach. Knowing these things upfront was very helpful, so we knew the "situation" going in. We choose not to eat at the restaurant (our own choosing), but it seemed active and busy while we were there. A huge plus about this yacht club (other than it accepts transients) is that it is only a 10-15 minute walk into the heart of town. So why only 4 stars? The docks are fixed and old. Many planks need replacement, and portions of the dock are slip hazards when wet. Also, although adequate, the showers could use a upgrade. And yes, if in the area again, i would definitely request a slip at the Cambridge Yacht Club.

We were there 5, 6 July. Nice facility. We had the T head so it was easy docking. Restaurant was great. We heard lots about the 4th of July party so not sure why there was a post about it being closed. Easy walk into town. Our dock contact was super helpful, got info about how to get a mechanic, places to eat, etc. Would go back again for sure! Cheap ICE!! Fill your bilge when you come.

No pool, which is a shame because otherwise location is good. Dated bathrooms but clean. No staff to help with docking. No bikes. So, nice spot but amenities not as good as other places. Also, restaurant not open even though July 4 holiday weekend.

We enjoy this quiet little marina. It's a great fall and spring destination when you can walk the town in cool temps. There's no pool so it's more of a "sweater weather" destination. We ordered food from the CYC which was tasty and reasonably priced. They delivered our order to our boat so fast that we thought they were bringing someone else's order!

A squirrel fried itself on a transformer which shut down the marina electrical. The YC Commodore happened to be walking the facility and got on the phone as soon as she heard about the problem. The utility got power restored in about an hour. Nice clean bathhouse. Very convenient to walking the town.

This was a return trip for us, our prior trip having been in 2019. First the pros. The location is very good, a 20 minute walk to the center of old town where there are restaurants, gift shops, 2 wine bars, and a micro brewery. Friendly staff, nice indoor bar and restaurant. We had a delicious dinner there Friday evening. Now the negatives. The decking on the piers needs repair or preferably complete replacement. On the way to and from our boat we encountered several warped deck boards that present a tripping hazard. The electric system also needs work - the first power pedestal I connected to didn't work and I had to move to one on the other side of the dock. That meant that my 50A power cord was laying across the walkway, which was a bit of hazard for boaters at the other end of the dock. Finally, although there was free WiFi in the clubhouse, it was non-existent in boat slips. That is simply not acceptable in the year 2021.

Great people. Met friends there and had dinner delivered to our boat. Very good food. We needed a few supplies and one of the members offered to drive me to the store. So very kind. Very nice and easy walk into town the following morning before departure to a nice bakery. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 stars is no pool and no system for dock hands to help upon arrival. No monitoring of VHF 9/16 and voice mail when called. A member did come and help out ... which we really appreciated.
