Breaking News:  SBYC requests $5.00 per boat per cruise.

This year SBYC begins requesting $5 per boat for all cruises that are held in Marinas. This will offset Marina fees to hold blocks of slips and/or entertainment facilities. The $5 will be collected at the events (cash or check) from the boaters. No penalties for no-shows. This SBYC charge is in addition to the Marina’s charge for moorage. For more info, please contact Patricia, Cruise Chair, SBYC.
