Welcome to the Lewisporte Yacht Club and Marina Facility
The Lewisporte Yacht Club (LYC) is the social group for the boaters at the Lewisporte marina. The executive and committees operate the clubhouse, organize social
activities, and act as a common voice for the LYC members.
The clubhouse offers members an informal, relaxing environment overlooking the docks. It has shower and laundry facilities, and is fully accessible. The kitchen and
barbeques are available to both members and visiting crews. Friends, new and old, can often be found inside the building sharing good food and cruising tales.
The LYC also maintains moorings at popular locations throughout the Bay of Exploits. These are free for the members to use.
The Lewisporte marina is a modern facility located in the beautiful Bay of Exploits. It is a gateway to Notre Dame Bay, which offers some of the best cruising in
Eastern North America. The dozens of islands make for a sheltered boating area, containing many safe anchorages.
It has one hundred and seventy berths, including a fixed wharf, and floating docks. There are also 2 moorings. It can accommodate visiting vessels up to 100 feet in length, with a maximum draft
of 12 feet. Municipal water, 30 amp electrical power, and wireless internet are available. Gasoline and diesel fuel can be purchased on-site.
The facility itself is operated by the Lewisporte Marina Administrative Authority (LMAA). The marina manager is Todd Manuel. For billing information, vessel storage, yard work, boat launching/haul-out, reserving the shed, or questions about the facility, contact the LMAA at 1-709-535-3633 or email email@example.com. Marina staff monitor VHF channel 68.
They have a 30 ton Marine Travelift, as well as a 40 ton Con-O-Lift for vessel haul-out.
There is also a large repair shed which can be rented. Private contractors are available for vessel repair and maintenance. Vessel storage is provided in a large, secure yard.
There is a locally produced Notre Dame Bay cruising guide that is a salient reference, and is available from marina staff, as well as various marine stores and booksellers.
The Club hosts Wednesday Night Racing during the sailing season, as well as the annual Harbour Cup Race held during the Lewisporte Mussel Bed Soiree.
The marina is home to a Canadian Coast Guard inshore rescue base.
The Town of Lewisporte has many amenities within walking distance of the marina and is replete
with Newfoundland charm and hospitality. The LYC maintains some bicycles for members and visitors to use to get around town.
The Lewisporte Yacht Club is also a proud sponsor of the annual Health Foundations Regatta.
The Flag Officers and Members of LYC welcome you to our Club, and trust that your stay with us will be memorable.
