In case you missed the first one or two, the goal here is to get non-boaters on the water for an enjoyable evening on the lake!

Dogs and Swimming
The weather's hot and there's lots of swimming activity on the T-dock and at the beach. Just a quick reminder to those trying to help our canine pals beat the heat as well: please keep dogs out of the water in areas where there are members (particularly children) swimming.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Parking @ KYC
As we sort through ways for alleviating our parking limitations at the club, we need to first make the most of the parking resources we have.

KYC staff has been approved by the City of Kingston to issue parking tickets. We therefore encourage you to have a current parking sticker displayed on your vehicle: these stickers are available at the bar. We remind you that you must also be at KYC or out cruising to use club parking. If you are parked in the lot and leaving to cruise, please notify the office so that your vehicle does not get ticketed.

The Club is in the midst of many improvements to make it a more enjoyable environment for all and to attract new members. Work has been done on the breakwall area to create a more enjoyable place to hang out, swim and sail that is safe and accessible for members and their equipment. Ensuring safety requires reducing vehicle access to the breakwall. Below is a link to the policy the Board recently passed.

A correction: Glenn's July 16th email stated that parking tickets issued to unauthorized vehicles in the club parking lot are $10. As it turns out he was wrong, these tickets will be $20. Tickets for parking on Maitland from Monday to Friday from 10am to 11am and from 3pm to 4pm are ten-bucks.

KYC Barbecues & Bring Your Own Food (BYOF)
We now have two barbecues available for BYOFs. One is in front of the clubhouse and the other is at the end of the breakwall by the yellow & white striped tent.

Here’s the deal:

If you BYOF and will be eating on your boat then you are welcome to use the closest barbecue to your boat. If you are not eating on your boat then you must use the breakwall barbecue and eat out there. The tent is equipped with picnic tables. You are also welcome to eat at the picnic tables at Sullivan’s Point (west end of breakwall by flag pole).

Eating your BYOF is not permitted in the new crested tent and areas around the clubhouse including the beach.

Barbecue utensils are available from the bartender.

Barbecue users are asked to clean the barbecue when done and return utensils to the bartender. 

Other than barbecue utensils you are required to bring your own plates, flatware, condiments etc.

BYOF participants should be aware that BYOF eating areas are not covered within the club’s liquor license, therefore, alcoholic beverages are not permitted in these areas.

Harbour Redevelopment Update

Thanks to everyone who attended the Harbour Design Town Hall meeting on July 3rd. The preferred harbour design
was presented and discussed with members who contributed valuable feedback. This feedback will be used during the next
iteration of the design process.

We will be continuing to work with Shoreplan Engineering to refine and improve the proposed design. Please keep
watching the Knotmeter and website ( for updates as this progresses.

An orange buoy marker has been put in at the foot of West Street to mark the width of the proposed entrance. Members are encouraged to try entering and exiting the harbour using this marker.

The New Harbour website can be found here:
Any questions related to the project should be directed
