  1. The following safety rules must be complied with by Section Members and guests at all times.
  2. Rowboats, canoes, ferries, and freighters have right of way over sailboats or recreational power boats at all times.
  3. All boats, including tenders ferrying people between moorings and/or docks and the shore, must comply with the recommendations of the Boating Safety Guide issued by Transport Canada. In addition, where applicable, all Club safety rules must be obeyed.
  4. Club Coach Boats and Committee Boats must be operated at all times in accordance with the Toronto Harbour Commission regulations. The operator must have permission from Club management prior to operation and be accompanied by a member of the Dock Staff. The operator must hold a current and valid Toronto Harbour license, a P.C.O.C. card and the VHF Maritime Operator’s License. It is the operator’s responsibility to ensure that all safety equipment is aboard prior to leaving the dock. Our Dock Staff do not carry out emergency rescues, but will inform the proper authorities to assist boaters in peril. 
  5. As a courtesy, The Boulevard Club will perform periodic mooring safety checks and advise the boat owner of the deficiencies.  It is the responsibility of the boat owner to correct the identified deficiencies.
