GYC Covid-19 Policy

Ontario proof of vaccine update

As of September 22, the Provincial Proof of Vaccine Mandate came into effect.  This requires some types of businesses and facilities to request proof of vaccination from those entering.  The primary impact on the GYC will be in the running of social events in the clubhouse. 

Although no club social events are planned at this time, future club events will require attendees to show proof of vaccination and a photo ID before entering.  Medical exemptions are permitted. 

The use of washrooms and Board Meetings are not affected by the proof of vaccine mandate.  

Current use of masks and social distancing remains unchanged.  Outside settings do not require masks unless distancing cannot be maintained. Masks for Haul-out crews are therefore required.

Clarification on the use of the covered patio

Currently the covered patio area is considered outdoors under COVID rules, which allows socially distanced groups of up to 25 to gather.  Note, only one of the temporary patio walls may be fitted to this area. 

No social events are allowed inside the clubhouse until further notice.  This includes club and unsanctioned gatherings. 

Georgian Yacht Club Annual Fishing Derby

All Members welcome – It’s time to show off your fishing skills!

September 17 and 18, 2021. The entry fee is $10.00 a person.

You can start fishing as early as you would like to on Friday but the official weigh in starts on Friday at 8:00 pm and on Saturday at 11:00 am at the gas dock. All fish must be weighed by noon on Saturday.

All fish entered will be donated for the Fish Fry starting at 4:30pm on Saturday.

There will be a trophy for the largest fish and 1/2 the pot. There will be another prize for most pounds per pole.

Please bring either a salad or dessert for the fish fry.

Please confirm or pay Rudy Hachey by September 16, 2021.

We regret that the Corn Roast and Commodore’s At Home Dinner are both once again cancelled for the year.

Clubhouse Closure Update

The clubhouse will be closed as of Monday November  23rd, with the exception of upstairs washrooms which will be accessible until the end of December. Please be advised the washrooms are not being professionally cleaned during this time. Use hand sanitizer and wipe down any surfaces you touch to protect yourself and fellow club members. Please follow public health guidelines and stay home if you are unwell.

COVID Update / Patios

Hi Folks, as we enter stage three of this COVID thing your board of directors has decided to fully open up the patios (bbq’s included) and the upstairs of the clubhouse. The downstairs and kitchen will remain closed at this time while we renegotiate our cleaning contract.

Play safe friends!

GYC Update

Dear GYC Members, 

After a recent board discussion we will be leaving the tables down in the picnic shelter for members to use. Please remember to maintain physical distancing and not have gatherings of more than 10 people. 

We will be bringing back the Porta Potty to the south basin.

Depending on the developments with Covid-19 we are hoping to plan a modified Sail Past on September 12th, 2020. More details to follow closer to the date. 

New member applications are posted in the upper floor of the clubhouse next to the washrooms. Please make sure to review the applications before the individuals come before the board in September. 

Stay safe, 

Your Board of Directors

Member Biographical Info

At the recent Meet & Greet a new member suggested displaying members’ bios.

Our web site has always had the capability of storing members’ biographical info. It is a standard part of your profile. A few of you have listed your boating experience and positions held in the Georgian Yacht Club.

Until now that information only appeared as a foot note to a member’s news post. Since few of you make posts, no one saw what you had written

Now I have added Biographical Info to the pop-up that appears when you click on a member’s name anywhere in the Directory.

You can add your own bio. by logging on and visiting Edit My Profile.
