One at each corner of the boat. We need four lines, because you depart and return from opposite sides of the dock.&nbsp;</li> <li>When approaching the dock, please do so slowly. Remember the rule of thumb that you only want approach the dock as fast as you want to hit it.&nbsp;</li> <li>The stern of the boat should be positioned so that it is facing the bulkhead when pulled down the dock.&nbsp;&nbsp;</li> <li>Have your dock lines and fenders attached to the boat prior to landing the boat.&nbsp;</li> <li>Trim your outdrive or outboard all the way up to the trailering position&nbsp;</li> <li>Put down your bimini and cover the boat&nbsp;&nbsp;</li> </ul> <p>Less is more when tying off the boat. Please watch this video on the proper way to tie a dock line. <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMwXjckgiOs">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMwXjckgiOs</a>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>COURTESY SLIPS</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>At Skippers, we have 5 courtesy slips available for our dry stack storage customers to use. Since that is a limited number of slips, we ask you to please only use a courtesy slip if you are planning on using the boat the next day. Also, there is a limit of 3 days to keep your boat in a courtesy slip. If you are done with the boat, please put it on the launch or return dock so we can haul.&nbsp; This way other members can enjoy the dock space.</p> Tips http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/Returning-to-the-Marina-Tips-1111 October 2016 Newsletter http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/October-2016-Newsletter-1110 <a href="https://www.luminpdf.com/viewer/btoeQJtzeF7dhPKTZ">Click here to view our October 2016 newsletter!&nbsp;</a> News http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/October-2016-Newsletter-1110 A Dock End of Summer Bash http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/A-Dock-End-of-Summer-Bash-1109 Thanks to the A Dock for hosting our annual end of summer bash!

The Dragon Boat coach is Beans Kelly and the group is primarily comprised of cancer survivors. Plus, the reserves (supporters) are survivors or family members of survivors. In August, the group participated in the Rowan Chamber Dragon Boat Festival held on High Rock Lake in Salisbury, NC, and they won their SECOND Gold Medal! Great job, paddlers! Please stop by the RHYC Ship&rsquo;s Store and see the Dragon Boat &ldquo;Wall of Fame,&rdquo; and be sure to congratulate the paddlers and Coach Beans when you see them around the RHYC property.

They’re a wonderful&nbsp;photographic retrospective of growing up at RHYC&hellip;.such fun!&nbsp;Take a peek at the photos below and trace the journey of memories Elliott, age 7, shares with her brother Ethan, parents Ram and Kim Abernethy, and of course, her awesome grandparents Kaye and &ldquo;Big John&rdquo; Schroeder.<br />&nbsp;<br />We would love to share more photo albums of all of our other RHYC kids, so send along your photos to&nbsp;<a href="mailto:reserve@morningstarmarinas.com" target="_blank">reserve@morningstarmarinas.com</a>,&nbsp;so that&nbsp;we can continue to feature our kids growing up at RHYC in future eblasts!<br />&nbsp;<br />Christine Rosow, General Manager<br />Reserve Harbor Yacht Club &nbsp;&nbsp;<br />843-235-8262</div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div> <hr /> <h1>LAST WEEK RECAP</h1> <hr /> </div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div><a href="http://morningstarmarinas.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=d1832bf0d5&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/00383bec-19cb-4377-b80f-693bdb00906c.jpg" alt="" width="350" height="232" align="none" /></a><br />Here is Elliot celebrating her birthday on the RHYC porch!&nbsp;<br /><br /><a href="http://morningstarmarinas.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=3c0bbaaa18&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/436c57ba-dbcf-4ce2-b2e9-ab49dc1547e9.jpg" alt="" width="350" height="262" align="none" /></a><br />Elliot with big brother Ethan and the RHYC Easter Bunny<br /><br /><a href="http://morningstarmarinas.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=0a5a71a5ce&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/eb7568db-6949-4f32-8ab2-25512030fcf2.jpg" alt="" width="350" height="262" align="none" /></a><br />Elliot with grandparents Kaye and John Schroeder enjoying the pretzel floatie in the RHYC pool earlier this summer&nbsp;<br /><br /><a href="http://morningstarmarinas.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=c1f13eda70&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/084636e7-cb2c-4e47-b0ae-6c94db23e22d.jpg" alt="" width="350" height="232" align="none" /></a><br />Elliot enjoying Kids Appreciation Day 2011<br /><br /><a href="http://morningstarmarinas.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=a71039c544&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/2fafe26d-ccc1-40eb-b512-ea2179f13aa1.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="333" align="none" /></a><br />And finally, Elliot enjoying Kids Appreciation Day 2016!

Every month, we will launch your boat, check all instrumentation, run the engine, and check all fluids and battery charge. Our captains will then take the boat out on the waterway and give her a test run to assure proper engine performance, instrument function and boat handling. Once all checks are complete, we will call you to give you an update on her performance and, if necessary, make any recommendations to keep your boat in tip-top running condition. Performance and instrument check programs start at $29 per month, so call our RHYC captains today at (843) 235-8262 to set up your monthly program and enjoy the peace of mind of knowing your boat is ready to go when you are.&nbsp;</div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div> <hr /> <h1>WEATHER AND TIDES&nbsp;</h1> <hr /> </div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div>The weather is showing a cooling trend for the weekend, with temperatures in the high 80s and mostly sunny skies - perfect weather for enjoying the great outdoors at RHYC!&nbsp;<br /><br />Check out&nbsp;<a href="http://morningstarmarinas.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=3b1f37f396&amp;e=543c592ffd">the U.S. Harbors website</a>&nbsp;to get all the tide tables for the entrance to Thoroughfare Creek, just across from the RHYC channel<strong>.</strong>&nbsp;</div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div> <hr /> <h1>HOURS OF OPERATION&nbsp;</h1> <hr /> </div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div><span style="text-decoration: underline;">RHYC Clubhouse</span>:&nbsp;open daily&nbsp;<strong>11 a.m. - 9 p.m.</strong>&nbsp;for your poolside dining fun!&nbsp;<br /><span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Pool</span>:&nbsp;open daily from&nbsp;<strong>9 a.m. - sunset&nbsp;</strong><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Marina and Ship’s Store</span>:&nbsp;open Monday - Thursday&nbsp;<strong>9 a.m. - 5 p.m.</strong>, Saturday - Sunday<strong>&nbsp;9 a.m. - 6 p.m</strong>.&nbsp;&nbsp;</div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div> <hr /> <h1>S.C.

You heard me right, high 80&rsquo;s not high 90&rsquo;s, with a heat index of 110 degrees, so if you weren&rsquo;t planning on getting out on the water this weekend, you may want to revise your plans. We don&rsquo;t find too many days in August below 90 degrees, so I look forward to seeing everyone out on the water enjoying this beautiful weather!<br /><br />Chris Ferguson, General Manager<br />Morningstar Marinas | Golden Isles<br />912-634-1128</div> <div> <hr /> <h1>UPCOMING EVENTS</h1> <hr /> </div> <img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/ad86b6ac-f5a8-4352-b175-d6bc81ef9147.png" alt="" width="250" /> <div> <div> <h2><br /><br />Golden Isles King Mac Attack Tournament&nbsp;</h2> <h3>August 18-20, Gascoigne Park&nbsp;</h3> <br /><br /><strong>Captains meeting</strong><br />Thursday, August 18, 7 p.m. at Gascoigne Park<br /><strong>Fishing Days&nbsp;</strong><br />Friday, August 19 &amp; Saturday, August 20&nbsp;<br /><strong>Awards</strong><br />Saturday, August 10, 7 p.m.&nbsp;<br /><strong>Food</strong><br />Provided by The Half Shell<br /><strong>Registration</strong><br />The entry fee for this event is $425 per boat.
