  5. 5. 1. We are located on the ICW between markers 8A and 10; 1⁄4 mile south of the Ringling Causeway Bridge. We are accessible through Venice Inlet, Sarasota Big Pass, and Sarasota New Pass. We are located directly east of the ICW with entrance markers 2 and 3. GPS coordinates for the marina are: 27.19.98N -- 82.32.79W. 2. We monitor VHF channel 16. Upon approach to the marina, please hail Marina Operations on channel 16. We will switch to a working channel of 71. If your club is currently monitoring another channel, let us know and we will switch to your club’s working channel. It is important for the cruise leader to notify fleet of working channels to avoid members missing directions given by dockmaster. 3. It is imperative that only one boat enters the slips at a time to ensure dock assistance from our staff. Our dockmaster will call each boat into their assigned slip and we respectfully request that all other boats wait in the basin near the marina entrance until they are called. This process will ensure that all boats will dock safely and securely and receive the service and assistance needed. 4. Once you are given a dock assignment by a dockmaster, you may then proceed to your slip where dock hands will help you tie up and connect utilities. 5. Please instruct your cruise members to have all 4 dock lines out (1-bow / 2-stern / 1-spring for “pull-in slips”) and tied to their boat before they come to their assigned slip. If boats are prepared at the slip we can bring your club in quickly and efficiently and reduce waiting time on securing boats. It may also be necessary to bring fenders along to fend vessel from pilings and finger piers. cruise club ARRIVAL
