Status: Closed

The Status of the Yacht Club April 24, 2020 In view of the Governor’s State Re-Opening plan, the FHYC Board of Directors are monitoring the progress of the Central New York Region towards meeting the state guidelines (“Metrics”) that will allow the clubhouse to reopen on a limited basis. According to the State, the Central New York Region has now met those requirements. The Official Club Opening will be delayed until “Phase Four” of the State’s reopening plan, as marinas (and by extension yacht clubs) fall into the “Recreation” group of businesses. The Board of Directors will be looking into allowing limited use of the rest rooms, and a list of rules and procedures will be forwarded to the general membership and posted inside the rest rooms. This will be discussed at the next scheduled board meeting, Saturday, June 6th. Both reciprocal and non-reciprocal visitation to the Yacht Club remains suspended until further notice. Docks and slips will be available for our members use under strict “Social Distancing” rules due to the easily spread Novel Coronavirus and the highly contagious disease Covid-19. Face coverings must be worn while you are on the docks while you are not on your boat. Keep disposable gloves handy, you may have to come in contact with another person’s boat (helping a friend into the slip, etc.), and you wouldn’t want to infect their boat, or be infected by it! You must maintain at least six feet of distance between you and others (who are not in your “stay at home” group) while you are on the docks or on the grounds of the club. As you approach someone coming in the opposite direction, move onto a slip finger and let them pass. As you walk up to the dock, people coming off the dock have “right of way” over people entering the docks. Let them leave the ramp (and ramp area) before you approach. Have “hand sanitizer” with you so that when you touch something (pedestals, whatever), you can clean your hands afterward. Personally, I wear a mask whenever I am at the club, I don’t even know I have it on most of the time! A few picnic tables will be made available for use, spaced accordingly, to optimize social distancing. Special attention should be paid to Social Distancing here, as you cannot eat while wearing a mask! There will also be a few grills available for our members use. Charcoal will be available, but I would advise we all bring our own for safety reasons. Studies have shown that even on soft surfaces, such as cardboard, this virus can remain active for an hour or more. DO NOT SHARE A GRILL unless a person is done using it. Disposable gloves will be made available for grill use, and I suggest you use them. You will also have to bring your own utensils, paper plates and flatware, as none will be available from the club house. Remember, if you are in an area where you may come into close proximity with other people (like the grilling area!!), you must be wearing a face covering to protect yourself and others. The life you save may be your friends, or your friend’s friend. Or their grandparents, or your grandparents! You could be infected with this virus for seven days without even knowing it, and spread it around to anyone, or anything, you come in contact with. Don’t take chances! Thank you for your cooperation and your understanding, Bill Strobel, 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.

​Consider these advantages Day Sailing, Cruising, Racing Youth Lessons. Dual 30-amp hook ups available Potable water, Central location to cruise the lake Sail on Little Sodus Bay or Lake Ontario (only minutes away by boat). Sailing for everyone:

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.
