Launch & Haulout

PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR 2021 HAUL OUT OR LAUNCH SCHEDULE 

Our Harbourmaster has started to fill in the haul out / launch schedule. Once you have installed Google calendar, search for the name of your boat to view your scheduled haul out / launch date and time.  If you do not see your boat on the haul out schedule by September 15, 2021, contact the Harbourmaster by email pcycharbour@gmail.com to arrange a time. If your boat is un-named, your surname may have been used (UN-surname).                     

Mast times are scheduled in the same way. If you need to change your mast stepping or unstepping time, please contact pcycharbour@gmail.com.  During launch, members whose masts are being stepped the same day will need to come to the Dock Office to pick up a ribbon marker and attach it to their mast before launch day to ensure it is out the morning of launch.  

The haul out / launch schedule is SUBJECT TO CHANGE and shown for your information and is accurate only at time of publication.  

All haul out / launch dates and times are subject to weather conditions, water levels, COVID-19 restrictions and accessibility of your boat in the yard (launch). Your scheduled haul out / launch will only take place if it is safe to do so, as determined by the Harbourmaster.
