Upon entering the EAST entrance of Squalicum Harbor in Bellingham Bay, proceed past the Bellwether Hotel and Anthony's Hearthfire Restaurant (on your starboard). Your bow will be pointed to the "O" dock, which is the visitors dock. You may tie-up to that dock temporarily. A CYC sign is located at the west end of this dock, and you will find these instructions. Boats up to 40' overall can be accommodated, on a first come, space available basis. These slips are made available by members who are out cruising. If no member slips are available, then use visitors dock, and use a Port of Bellingham pay envelope, available by The Loft restaurant. Write CYC in large letters in "fee enclosed" section. CYC Bellingham will pay Port for total of 24 hours moorage, and you will be responsible for additional days.

CYC Bellingham members, through the cooperation of the Port of Bellingham, are making these reciprocal slips available to you. Please respect the rules for the usage of these slips, or they may be lost to you and others forever.

In using these facilities, you agree to hold harmless the Port of Bellingham and Corinthian Yacht Club of Bellingham for damages caused by your actions.
