Approach

The channel is dredged and therefore there is a sharp distinction between the depths in the channel (approximately 9 feet at mean low) and the depths just outside of the navigation markers (2 feet or less at low tide). This is especially so on the western edge of the channel by cans G9 and G11. There is a bit more depth for maneuvering to the east of R8 and R10, but certainly stay within the channel when possible.

As you pass the last red and green (G11 and R10) you will see two "no wake" buoys. Those are deliberately set by the yacht club staff at the edge of the channel, so treat them as navigational aids. As you continue your approach favor the breakwater since the mudflats on the western shore extend out quite far. At the northern end of the breakwater there is a sandy point of beach. There is a steep drop-off so that vessels can pass quite close, but when there is no traffic a conservative skipper will steer for the mid-point of the channel between the wharf on the left and beach on the right.

There is a string of moorings running up the east and west side of the harbor. All vessels are secured bow and stern between two moorings. Further north the harbor widens into what is called the southern mooring field. Boats are also moored bow and stern here. Be aware that even if boats are out it is likely their pennants are tied together. Therefore, double check for a clear lane before passing between mooring balls. The orange balls mark the end of a string and only one pennant comes off each of those. White balls are within a string of moorings and they are liable to be connected.

The best place for maneuvering is east of the Pequot Yacht Club gas dock where there is ample space to turn by circling the string of guest moorings that are set in the center of that part of the harbor.

Current

Moderate

Tide & current additional info

The harbor is also the mouth of Mill River. As a result, outgoing current can be enhanced by a strong flow of water after a rain. Current will also run in on a rising tide. It is best to take your own current observations by observing the behavior of water around buoys or other stationary items.

Reviews for Pequot Yacht Club
Beautiful Place, 2013-09-09
Captain: , Rye Boat Basin (407)

We stayed overnight a the Pequot Yacht Club. The staff is very friendly and professional, the environment is welcoming, and the village is worth a visit. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance.
Before visiting, make sure you review the Club's instructions on how to pick fore and aft moorings -- instructions are available at http://www.pequotyc.com/files/Visiting%20Yachtsman%20trifold.pdf




Beautiful, charming yacht club, 2012-09-20
Captain: , New York, NY (470)

Easy approach in deep water (>10 feet.) Fore and aft moorings, the staff rigs pick up floats for newbie transients and provides instructions--very easy to negotiate. Friendly, helpful, professional staff. Short launch ride to dock. Would be super easy to row dinghy. Lovely location, lovely town. Market + restaurants and bars close by. Showers/bathrooms are old, but clean with plenty of hot water/pressure. I would go back.



Delightfully different, 2012-08-13
Captain: , Snead Island, Fl (23)

Up the narrow Mill River to Southport Harbor you will find Pequot YC. A charming location next to a golf course with fore and aft moorings. Staff was very friendly and helpful. A number of restaurants and a gourmet market are within walking distance (Grey Goose-excellent). The only negative is the bathrooms need upgrading.



Great club to visit in CT, 2012-07-23
Captain: , Neptune Island, NY (76)

Courteous and helpful staff. Fore and aft mooring system due to the narrow channel. Mooring fee is $45.00 per night plus 10% CT luxury tax plus 6% sales tax. Beautiful views. The club serves lunch daily. Well worth a visit



A most picture perfect Connecticut Yacht Club., 2011-07-04
Captain: , City Island New York (600)

we came several times to this sooo cute little town, very quiet narrow river with a constant breeze up river where you can swim literaly from your boat in very clean water, the village(8 stores at most?) is most charming with grocery store, drugstore, diner, restaurant (soso) pizza store and severals decorating and antique stores, serious upscale shopping in Wesport on Main street about a $13 cab ride away. July 10th 2011.



Best of The Best, 2011-01-18
Captain: , New York Harbor (495)

Although you might think Yacht clubs are snooty the truth is anything but.
The generous members and staff of the Pequot Yacht club have always welcomed us with a mooring and use of their Picture perfect facilities.
I can not thank them enough.
