While New Orleans still has a long road ahead in her recovery from Hurricane Katrina, West End is nearly fully back online. Municipal Yacht Harbor has been completely devoid of foundered boats and debris since 2007 and transient slips are available.
New Orleans Yacht Club has a limited number of dry storage spots available for use by participants and will be granted on a first come, first serve basis. Race Committee is also currently working with the city and a 24hr. security agency to provide dry storage in the massive, vacant parking lot across from West End Park.
Other dry storage may be available adjacent to NOYC’s dry storage on the cleared site of the New Orleans Power Squadron.
NOYC currently has two 2.0 ton hoists and has a great neighbor in Southern Yacht Club which also allows regatta participants use of their hoists.
Nearby Bonnabel Boat Launch is best suited for trailer launched sailboats.
