Landings Harbor Marina
It felt like SUMMER had arrived last weekend! The weather was gorgeous, and our team completed more than 230 boat movements Saturday and Sunday alone. During the week, our dockhands completed several boat washes and replaced a couple water hoses at the wash racks. Our team also secured some loose deck boards on the fishing pier.
The natural gas line was upgraded this week and a new meter set was installed to support the backup generator for Landings Harbor’s Ship’s Store. The vendor is scheduled to install the transfer switch and platform next Tuesday. During the switch installation, we expect a 2–4-hour power outage. Please be aware, if you are planning to get out on the water Tuesday, you may not be able to fuel up if the power is off. There will be a second phase to this project, as the generator has been delayed from the manufacturer and is now scheduled for delivery in May.
Marina Ship’s Store
A new solar UPF 50 nautical chart shirt has arrived in the Ship’s Store. This design has both marinas marked on the chart. Replenishment of two of our most popular hat designs are here too! We replaced a table with some white cubicles under the front window. This gives us some more merchandising room and lightened up the space.
50th Anniversary Merchandise
The kick-off 50th Anniversary event on May 15 is coming soon! Don’t forget to come on down to the Ship’s Store to get some merchandise to wear that day and throughout the year! We have polo’s, t-shirts, hats, Tervis tumblers, koozies, and golf towels! Cheers to 50 Years!
Landings Sailing Club
The Landings Sailing Club has been busy this past week. They held sailing lessons in a classroom setting and then followed up with a couple of in-water sessions later in the week. They have had a fabulous turnout. The Landings Sailing Club membership is growing steadily. They will cap off this week with their bi-weekly Beer Can Race this Friday, April 29. For more information you may contact them at email@example.com or follow them at facebook.com/The Landings Sailing Club.
The Landings Harbor Marina dry, wet, and jet ski storage is at full capacity. We continue to maintain a waiting list for all slips. This week, we will be transitioning a couple of the slips.
Boating Members Visiting TLA Marinas
Landings Harbor boaters that plan to visit Delegal Creek Marina must contact the marina office (912-224-3885) in advance to arrange for dock space. Please be considerate of the fact that dock space is very limited and may only be available for one to two nights maximum. Please do not arrive unannounced and leave your boat at the marina without first contacting the marina office. Your cooperation is appreciated.
All dry storage boaters have access to the launch scheduling app called BoatCloud. You should use the app to request movements for your boat. This helps manage the workload and allows the staff to efficiently move your boat to a wash rack, load onto a trailer, or launch to the water. As we saw this past weekend, several hundred boat moves were captured in BoatCloud, keeping the staff highly active. To avoid delays in having your boat movement completed, it is recommended that you use the BoatCloud app for every move. Delays moving your boat will be expected if you do not utilize the app as designed. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Delegal Creek Marina
The electrical panel project shifted to “A” Dock this week due to a vendor error with the panel breaker sizes for “B” Dock. “A” Dock power was shut down Monday and is expected to be back up during the day Thursday. Although the ship’s store and dock office are without power, the fuel system is operating normally since this system is on a separate circuit. Cold drinks are iced down in the ship’s store for your convenience. Ice and other perishables have been relocated but are also available by the dock staff.
The Kayak launch dock addition was temporarily held up by some missing connecting hardware that is expected to arrive by the end of this week. Once all the hardware is received, the dock section will be placed into service.
You may have noticed that the red #1 and green #2 buoys marking the entrance to Delegal Creek have been missing. Staff have purchased new buoys and are preparing them to be installed as soon as possible.
