HISTORY - MBYC has evolved from a very humble
beginning in 1967, to the vital, vibrant and exciting
club that it is today. The MBYC clubhouse (built in
1998), has outstanding facilities, and a beautiful
location. MBYC has always been a self-help club,
with the members doing much of the required work.

LOCATION - Macassa Bay is located on the South/West
shore of Hamilton Harbour/Burlington Bay. We share
the bay with a marina to the left. Follow the channel
markers, we are the docks on the right side of the
bay. There are three long fixed docks with slips for
over 100 boats, both power and sail. One of the
best anchorages is at Carrollís Point across from
Macassa Bay.

OFFICER OF THE DAY - A member of our club will be
on duty only on the weekends. Other times check with
the bar staff. A record is kept of vacant member slips.
Phone ahead 905-529-9205 to check on availability.
The Club monitors VHF channel 68.

DOCKS - Visitors tie up to the dock by the mast hoist
at the end of the first set of docks (A Dock - port tie
up) and go to the Club Bar on the second floor to
register. You can enter from the back stairs. There
are no visitor docks but you can be accommodated
in vacant memberís slips. Docks have water and
30 amp service. When approaching from seaward,
the first Dock you come to is A, next B to the
right etc., the slips are numbered odd to port and
even to starboard. Macassa Bay depth can be a
problem in the fall when the water drops. There
are limited deep water slips. Maximum boat length
42 feet/width 14 feet/6 foot draft. Remember
to tie all halyards to minimize noise.

RECIPROCAL PRIVILEGES - The MBYC offers
reciprocal privileges to boats visiting from reciprocal
yacht clubs on first come first served basis.
Reservations are not accepted unless you are
traveling with an organized group arranged by
your yacht club. Club membership card must be
presented. Please fly your club burgee.

GATES/SECURITY - The Gates are locked when
the bar staff leaves. Please make sure to check
the time if you are planning to leave club grounds.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION - Free shuttle to Downtown
Hamilton, in a special red Trolley Bus departs from
Discovery Drive. From downtown you can get a bus to
most places in Hamilton. The Fare is $2.55 cash or
$2.00 if you have a ticket. Fares subject to change.
