Notice to Mariners
Erie Canal - Waterford
July 31, 2018
Mariners are advised of practice sessions on in the evenings of Thursday, August 16th and Friday August 17th for the Saturday, August 18th Dragon Boat Races announced in a July 23rd Notice to Mariners.
This will effectively limit the amount of mooring space available on the floating docks during these times. It is highly recommended that mariners seeking dockage call Waterford Harbor in advance at (518) 233-9123.
It is also anticipated that the practice sessions, along with the main event, could cause minor delays to vessels passing through. Plan itineraries accordingly.
