Short and Long Term Boat Storage
We offer storage and berthing for all boats from the Monday prior to Race Week until the Monday following Race Week. The number of transient slips and dock space available in Alamitos Bay Marina is limited. Rafting will be necessary and registration is required. Boats requiring a berth should indicate their intended arrival and departure date on their Entry Form.
Mooring assignments will be published on the Race Info page.
Boats requesting berthing prior to the window described above MUST contact the LBYC Waterfront Office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Longer term storage is very limited and will be assigned on a first come basis.
For trailered boats, short-term pre-regatta storage will be available. Longer term boat storage can also be arranged. Please contact the ABYC Office for further information: 562-434-9955 or e-mail email@example.com
