Tahoe (Bug) Island
Transportation to Bug Island is provided by the Yacht Club pontoons one hour before and after races. A club owned rowboat may be used during non-race times. The island provides dry storage of boats during the sailing season. Lifts must be approved by the Bug Island manager and must have the owner’s name on the lift in a location that can be read from the island. Each spring and fall Bug Islanders assemble to walk all the scow and X Boat lifts into and out of the water. Participation of the Islanders is mandatory in this cooperative effort.
