Boat Dock Launch or South Dock
This dock is used for putting in or taking out motor boats on trailers or from mooring balls.
This dock is used for picking up/dropping off boat passengers and for anything having to do with boating. Fishing is also allowed but the area should be easily accessed by boaters.
Boats should never be left at this dock for extended periods.
Sunbathing is not allowed here.
Leeward Side Docking
This is where sailor's boats get launched from the hoist at the Floating Dock so the wind doesn't blow them into the dock.
When the wind is out of the south (towards Moravia), the Leeward side of the dock is north (the side closest to Emerson Park).
Winds can change direction so please be aware.
The OYC is a great place to sail on beautiful Owasco Lake. The Club has a hoist to lower small to mid size boats from the mole area to the lake. There is shore space (based on availability) to store your boat on-site as well as moorings available with use of tenders.
The Club owns a Sunfish, Laser, Hobie 14 catamaran, Pedal Boat, four kayaks and canoes for use by members.
Some members have remote control sailboats and are more than happy to show interested parties how they work, sail and race.
For more information about sailing at the OYC, contact Jim Kusche, Sailing Director at email@example.com

Warning about Severe Weather
If you're caught in bad weather and need to get back to shore, don't tie up to the Boat Launch dock.
If you have to tie up in an emergency, it's best to do so at the Floating Dock.
Better yet, be aware of sudden weather changes and get off the lake before trouble hits.
