Docking Requests

Due to Covid-19, OYS has changed our docking request process.  Individuals must fill out a Docking Request Form no later than 12 noon the day prior to their requested arrival.    At this time, no requests are being taken by phone.  Slips are assigned on a first-come, first served.  The OYS Harbourmaster will contact you if your slip request was successful.  

Please email the Cruising Directors if you have any further questions
