Dear POENB members,

As you know, the Board has been working diligently on a plan to improve watercraft storage conditions at our beaches. To that end, we have created a watercraft registration system as described below.

Starting on Friday, May 8th at 9:00am through Friday, May 22nd at 9:00pm, POENB members with current 2020 memberships will be eligible to register their watercraft online for storage at Price’s Bend and Valley Grove.

Please click here to access the 2020 Watercraft Registration Form.

Please note:

  • Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, based on the order in which the online registration forms are received.

  • Spot assignments will be made once the registration period has closed on May 22nd.

  • You will be able to request a spot on a specific rack. Please see rack designations below. We will do our best to accommodate these requests but there are no guarantees.

  • The form will offer the opportunity to register a second watercraft. HOWEVER, no second watercraft will be assigned a spot until we have confirmed that there are sufficient spots for every member to have at least one spot.

  • If members are interested in registering more than two watercraft, they can do so by contacting the Board after the May 22nd registration deadline.

  • As a reminder, any craft located in a spot which was not assigned by this method will be removed. Further, there will be only one watercraft per assigned location. Failure to comply will result in removal of the additional unregistered craft. Racks are for storage of adult craft only (i.e., no children’s kayaks).

Rack Designations at Price’s Bend

Kayaks will be allowed on racks A, B and C, as well as the Birmingham rack. You can indicate your preference for a particular kayak rack on the registration form.

All double kayaks and canoes are to be stored on the Birmingham rack.

Dinghy-only racks are labeled by color. You can indicate your preference for a particular dinghy rack on the form. Choices are white, black, orange, green, grey, red, pink or blue.

Please note that POENB reserves the right to use the dinghy racks for kayaks only when needed, and only after all registered dinghies have been assigned the closest locations to the water.

If you are a senior POENB member (ages 62+), you can indicate on the form whether you prefer a senior-designated, easier-access storage space.
