50th Capital Campaign

 

Dock funds raised March 10, 2011

As a part of the year of 50th anniversary celebrations the sailing club is raising funds to rebuild our dock. Our current dock has served us well for decades but the wooden structure is wearing out. So we are taking the opportunity to build a new dock with improved features.

Improvements include:

  • Wider dock at 8 feet the dock is more stable and better suited to accommodate people with mobility concerns.
  • Floats are also bumpers that are kinder on boats and useful for new sailors learning the skills of docking.
  • Buoyancy, the dock sits higher from the water and the flotation is protected in a plastic shell increasing its longevity.
  • The design is simple to assemble and rebuild for the future.

The plan for the sailing club is to build 144 feet of new dock, replacing all the original sections. 144 feet is equal to 6, 24 foot sections. In spring 2010 the club built its first 24 foot section in one day. This spring we are planning to build two more sections. And if our fundraising camping is successful we will build the remaining sections at the end of the season. Each section of dock costs approximately $3600.00 making the cost of a foot of dock equal to $150.00.
