Launch Service

Club Launches are available to members and their guests. The Nantucket Yacht Club does not reciprocate with other clubs.   Members must accompany their guests while using the launch.   Visiting yachtsmen may not use the Club Launch or any other waterfront facilities without approval of the Commodore. Club Launches and Launch Operators are licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and are subject to Federal regulations as posted on the launches. The Launch Operator is responsible for enforcement of these regulations. The Launch Operators monitor Channel 66A at all times while on duty. A radio is required to contact the launch for pickup. In order to make efficient use of Club Launches on weekends and race days, skippers are required to assemble their full crews in order to facilitate one delivery per craft. Children 12 and under must use an approved PFD at all times on the waterfront and on Club launches per Coast Guard regulations.

The Club Launch services a limited area of the harbor.  The Launch cannot go east of Hussey Shoal, north of Brant Point, or into the Nantucket Boat Basin.
