SPECIAL FLOOD 2019 NOTICE (Updated 8/29/2019)
If you are considering cruising on Lake Ontario this summer, you are undoubtedly faced with the daunting task of trying to figure out what services are available in each port. Here is some relevant information about visiting GYC in 2019:
- We are open and accepting visitors!
- Many services were unavailable earlier in the summer, but at this time all have been restored.
- Most of the 7,000 sandbags and 12 pumps have been removed.
- Our porch is available, and often populated with our members socializing.
We really hope you come to visit us.
The journey is the reward.
GYC has a small but growing cruising fleet. Since 2007 we have had three yearly cruising events. June and August with one long weekend cruise and July with a two week cruise.
Cruising is fun most of the time. Sailing as a group, visiting new ports, making new friends, and of course, informal racing always takes place. The times that we don't have fun is during bad weather and the dreaded breakdown. One year one of our cruisers actually replaced his engine during the cruise. A second member had a major engine problem AFTER returning from a month long cruise. How's that for timing?
GYC welcomes all members to participate. It doesn't matter if you are a novice sailor or a first place racer.
Genesee Yacht Club, on the east side, north of the O'Rorke Bridge, can accommodate boats from reciprocating clubs in vacant members' slips. (There is no charge, but the stay is limited to 2 days). The fixed docks have a minimum depth of 6 feet. The club monitors VHF Channels 16 and 71. Visitors are welcome to use the club's den with fireplace, television, DVD player and fully equipped kitchen. Wireless Internet access is available at no charge to guests.

Club facilities are: 15-amp power and water at docks; washrooms, showers, free local telephone, picnic area, ice, and gas barbecues. The price of ice remains at $1.00 cubes and $2.00 block.
