Directions to DMYC via the sea

Enter the breakwater with the pier on your port side. Turn starboard and proceed south along the channel. You will pass the fuel dock, pump out and City Marina on your port side. Proceed past the mooring slips to the very end of the channel. Our reciprocal dock (painted in green) is on your port side as you are facing the launch and club house.
