Smokefree Policy

SYC is committed to promoting a healthy and safe environment for all members and visitors. To this end, and to align with member expectations, the club has reviewed its smoking policy with the following outcomes:

  1. All areas within the fencing of the club are now designated as smoke-free zones. This includes all parts of the yard, the yard arm and the decking.
  2. All enclosed areas of the club continue to be smoke-free zones. This includes the tower, the shipping container and the boat shed.
  3. The tractor and patrol boats (and the area immediately surrounding the tractor and patrol boats) are designated smoke-free zones. This includes when on the concourse, beach or in the water.
  4. At Somers Yacht Club, the definition of smoking has been expanded to include e-cigarettes (also known as vapes).
