Keeping our kids and fellow members safe!

As a sailing club, we ask ALL FAMILIES to patrol at least once, sailors and non-sailors.

This makes it possible to keep the sailors on the race course as much as possible. For those who do not have motor boats, you may need to borrow or rent one to serve your patrol duty, or consider partnering with another member who has a boat. If you have dates when you cannot patrol, or a request to serve a particular fleet, please let us know. Contact Donna Wotton. Please send any scheduling requests by the end of March.


When and How to Report for Patrolling

Please report to the NLGYC dock at 9:30 am to pick up a radio, and proceed to the Committee Boat on the race course to check in by 9:40 am. Be sure you have a tow rope, life jackets, and an extra person on board to assist. If you can’t make it on your assigned day, please call around for a replacement, and notify the Race Committee Chair, Tom Vickerson.

If you are new to race patrol or serving as harbor master, and are a bit unsure of the responsibilities involved, we provide PATROL GUIDELINES and HARBOR MASTER documents to help you. See button below.
