North Cove Marina Hosts Radio-Controlled Sailboats

Remote controlled sailboats sail in the harbor

Just because the warm boating weather is gone and the yachts have migrated South for the cold season doesn’t mean that North Cove Marina has to languish as an unused dead zone in winter! On Saturdays and Sundays, the marina is transformed into a mini race course for 10 radio-controlled Laser sailboats. The marina is open to the public at a cost of $5 per hour, which pays for batteries. A $20 security deposit is required, but then refunded at day’s end. Sessions are determined by demand.

Interested “boaters” are urged to make an advance reservation in order to confirm a boat. If you do not make a reservation, boats will be available to you on standby.

Details are as follows: Upon arrival at North Cove, people should check in at the Dock Master booth, located on Dock H and access an RC Laser from the Laser Guru after filling out a form and submitting a deposit. There is also a Race Guru in charge of competitive boating. Race results will be recorded.

Do you plan to visit the North Cove Marina to operate a radio-controlled boat?
