There is a marina here but you can forget it. It is always super packed and all but impossible to

the left side of the
marina ¾ of the way inside. Have a long painter because the dinghy dock
is usually packed.
Walk into town to the left and find the Yacht Club on the ocean side of
the street. It is about 3 blocks down, and a little hard to find—the
doorway is just an alleyway.
Check-in with them letting them know which number mooring you are on.
You don’t have to be
