Village Boat Club Covid-19 Precautions - Boats, Equipment and Dock Space - Posted 5/25/2020

t is with deep sadness that we inform you that one of our founding members families, have lost a family member, Deborah to the Covid 19 Virus. Deborah is the daughter of Terry & Tom Salierno and sister to Robin and husband George Cling. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their entire family.


* Group use boats, ( non electric and electric), paddles and all other equipment must be cleaned & disinfected (without any detergents in the lake) before and after use. You may find some supplies initially in or near dock box but ultimately each member must supply their own cleaning supplies.

* Disinfect specifically with attention to all surfaces touched and sat on.

* Each member using a VBC boat or VBC equipment is responsible for protecting themselves by cleaning surfaces prior to use and again when done as a courtesy to next user. Refrain from touching items/ surfaces at club you are not using.

*Everyone is responsible for bringing and using their own PFDs(Personal Floatation device / life preservers) on VBC boats.  Emergency life preservers will be kept on Duffy & StarCraft boats only as emergency backups.

* At this time there is No Fishing permitted anywhere from the boat club grounds shoreline or on docks.

* As social distancing is difficult in small areas please respect the space of those coming and going.  Wear masks when others are nearby as a courtesy to them. Be respectful of personal space near the racks, launch area and on the docks and allow members 6 ft. minimum space.

* At this time, for group use boats and equipment, we encourage use by members and their immediate households only.

*If anyone is not feeling well or has been in contact with anyone who has  the Covid 19 Virus, they should not be at the VBC at this time.

*Please Review our VBC rules and procedures with all family members.

*Anyone Not complying with VBC Club Rules, Safety protocols, and procedures may have their membership suspended. As always, No nonmember guests may be at the boat club facility, nor use boats or dock without being accompanied by the VBC Family member!

Help All to stay safe and stay well!



Village Board Club Delays Season Due to Covid-19 - Posted 4/3/2020

Dear VBC Members,

We hope this finds you all safe, healthy and well.  As a new boat season is upon us, we have unfortunately been met with circumstances beyond our control that mandate a delayed opening to the VBC boating season.  As most or all of you are aware, Mayor McFadden has advised that based upon the Executive Orders issued by Governor Andrew Cuomo restricting non-essential gatherings of individuals of any size for any reason must be canceled or postponed. The mayor advised as follows:  

Boats and Lake Recreation: 

Because we have boating and lake recreation within the Village, Executive Order 202.10 applies to the Tuxedo Club, the Village Boat Club, the Wee Wah Fishing and Boat Club and the Wee Wah Beach Club.  The order applies to all boats and recreation on all three lakes. Please abide by these restrictions.”

Due to the order of the Governor and the directives of Mayor McFadden, we are hopefully to be fully open to all members by May 15, 2020 and possibly sooner depending on when the restrictions are eased and/or lifted.  

At the present time, the VBC communal boats are not available for use.  Communal Boats include Kayaks, Canoes, Rowboats, Fishing Boats, the Electric Duffy, etc.  We simply cannot guarantee the cleanliness and disinfecting of the communal boats after each use to ensure a safe experience under the present conditions. 

In the interim, the docks have already been installed.  We will also take this time to repair the docks and equipment. The site will be maintained and we will launch, clean and perform maintenance on the communal boats, but again the boats will not be available for use until the restrictions are lifted.  

At the present time, individual boat owners may launch and use their boats, but must limit passengers to immediate family members. No outside guests are permitted.  The property use will be restricted to just users of personal boats and members doing maintenance, repairs or cleanup. Multiple users are not to be on the dock or site simultaneously. If you find someone loading or unloading you must remain in your vehicle till that user has completed his/her use. Additionally, individual boat owners may use the site, but any materials, containers, packaging or trash must be removed upon leaving.

Again, this is just temporary and we will strive to keep the direction and mission of the VBC intact and reopen as soon as possible.  Additionally, we will take all steps to extend the season through the end of November.  We look forward to another great season at the VBC and will keep you apprised on an up to the minute basis as developments arise.
