Re: Summer Mooring Blues

I'll recommend Thames Yacht Club in New London. Around $1000.00 initiation and the same for yearly dues. You own your mooring (about $1500. if you do the install with club equipment) needs inspection every 2 years, diver available at club. There is dinghy storage available but there is also a launch service available for free. The club is a very friendly, low key, working man's type club with a great beach, showers, simple food service, and moorings at Block and Fishers, and no bridges. The club does have a very active racing program if that interests you. New London has lots going on, and the train runs there if you don't want to drive, Defenders is very close by, as well as several marinas with parts and services. You are in the east end of LIS with easy access to all the best cruising to NY, CT, and RI, as well as a quick jump to the Cape and Islands, Newport, and Northern waters. Come check it out for yourself.
