YSATT Moorings

The following information is supplied as an aid to boaters using the YSATT moorings:

 Each mooring consists of a 2,000lb (approx.) concrete block and 3/8”chain attached to an orange floating buoy.  There is a steel hoop at the top of the buoy for attachment of the boat’s bow rope.  Most moorings are marked with “YSATT” and a number.

There are only 6 to 8 feet of extra line (scope) between the mooring block and the buoy.  If users prefer to lift the mooring buoy slightly above the water to prevent banging, the buoy MUST be released at least 12 to 15 feet from the boat in times of bad weather.  This allows the boat to ride the waves without lifting the mooring block.  For this reason, when a boat is left unattended on a YSATT mooring, even for just a few hours, the buoy must be released by 12 to 15 feet.  Chaguaramas Bay can be subjected to unpredictable weather, particularly between the months of June to November.

 YSATT has placed 15 moorings within the anchorage zone in Chaguaramas.  There are twelve moorings that can accommodate yachts up to 15 tons and three heavier duty moorings that are suited for vessels up to 25 tons.  All moorings are rented at a rate of $30 TT or $5 US per night.  Long term rental rates are available.   Moorings may not be reserved in advance of arrival; they are strictly accommodated on a first come first serve basis.  Upon arrival in Trinidad, contact the YSATT office or speak to the water taxi operator to advise of your need for a mooring.  The moorings are checked quarterly to ensure that they are in good working condition; all necessary maintenance work is carried out during these routine checks.

Under no circumstances can the moorings be left overnight without a Captain on board.  Failure to comply with this will result in a report to the Coast Guard and Maritime Services Division and a request to the latter for the removal of the vessel.

The moorings are NOT designed for storm conditions and if surface winds exceed 40 knots, all vessels must vacate their respective moorings.  Moorings should not be pulled up out of the water as this may lead to the mooring anchor being pulled off the seabed during rough weather/heavy swells.

YSATT accepts no liability for any direct or indirect damage or loss to this registered vessel or equipment, arising from use or access to the moorings.

 Our aim is to provide a secure mooring at a modest price so that you can better enjoy your stay in Chaguaramas Bay.  Have a great time!
