Guidelines for Use of the Fair Haven Yacht Club Facilities May 2021
In view of NYS’s Phase Four guidelines, the FHYC Board of Directors has decided to open the club buildings and grounds for use by the membership, while following social distancing and face covering procedures that we have been practicing in 2020. Cleaning procedures that we were following in 2020 will be reinstated for the 2021 season, such as cleaning surfaces when you leave the rest rooms, and when you use the upstairs dining room and kitchen. While in the buildings, mask use is required whether you have been vaccinated or not, as one can still carry the virus, or become infected, even after being vaccinated. If you are sitting down to eat, obviously you cannot have a mask on, so refrain from sitting with friends who are not in your “Family Group”. There is a lot of room in the dining area, please exercise “social distancing”. Grilling and outdoor eating and refreshment is permitted, even encouraged, as studies show that transmission of the virus is much reduced in an outdoor environment. Still, be cautious around use of the grills, as distancing is difficult standing around a grill!
Protocols governing the use of the docks will be the same as 2020, namely mask use is not mandatory, but “social distancing” will still be in force and keep a mask handy in case you meet someone on the dock. Please refrain from holding “conversations” on the docks! Please go to a boat or meet on shore where you will not be holding up “traffic”.
Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation. We are almost through this thing. We just have to put up with this for a little while longer. Every infection we prevent from happening is one more step towards ending this pandemic, when it will finally be in the rear view mirror!
Thank you, The Fair Haven YC Board of Directors Tom Lee, Commodore
Fair Haven Yacht Club is a group of people who enjoy sailing, racing, boating, and the friendship of a small, intimate yacht club. Whether sailing on the deep-water, (not so little) Little Sodus Bay, or the open waters of Lake Ontario (only minutes away by boat), you'll always find conditions that are just right!
For some, the regular racing program is ideal, while others enjoy the weekend cookouts, Saturday night campfires, and one of the world's best sunsets on Lake Ontario. Everyone enjoys spending evenings on their boats after a exciting day on the water. And, for the kids, there is a large front and back yard, with swings and play areas, and the Jr. Clubhouse where they are sure to form lasting friendships. There is also a challenging Jr. Sailing Program. Our new, well-lit docks have underwater baffles to help reduce wave action from wind, waves, and passing boats. The club house has a private adult lounge for parties or just relaxing. There is also a large, professional kitchen for member's use at breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and a great hall for meetings, socializing and dining. The restroom/shower lounge areas are large, well lit, and clean.

Incredible people! Great facility. I would go there every weekend I can during the summer!
The folks at FHYC are very friendly and welcoming. I loved the deep water and the quiet facilities. We will be back again for another visit!
Very welcoming and friendly. Nice accommodations. We love visiting here.
Spectacular location. Very friendly people, willing to provide advice and help with docking. Modest but tidy clubhouse and facilities. Short walk to a restaurant directly on the water for breakfast lunch. And a short walk to a beautiful winery with outdoor dining. We had a great time and will be back.
