Starting Thursday (9.14.17), as part of their on-going remediation plans to move dirt over the perimeter path, the Navy intends to close access to the ramp Mondays through Friday's at 4:00 p.m. The Navy, barring any "unfavorable" soil samples, expects the week-day ramp closure to last "1 to 2 weeks."

The Navy has also asked us to respect the fence closure [meaning don't tear down the fence] from North Point Drive to the pipes on the north side of the island.

Of course, it remains while parking on North Point or Avenue I, to respect the tenants by limiting your nudity when changing Laughing refraining from urinating on their bushes Shocked, or parking on the dirt Rolling Eyes. Generally behave as though we are guests, including discreet post-session malt beverage refreshment Cool.

Thanks for the info Ross. Since I sail from noon to 3 that shouldn't affect me. Last time I was there I parked on the dirt access next to the fence opening. Found it real easy to get the foil gear to the ramp, which made me happy as you almost need a forklift to put a foil into the water. Later, some of the regulars told me that it's not advisable to park there Crying or Very sad

Bert, I think you misunderstood the post from Ross. The ramp will be closed all day Monday through Friday. Opening Friday at 4pm for the weekend.

Here is how I interpret Ross's post: the TI access will be closed M-F from 8 AM through 4 PM (while they work out there) for these next two weeks. It will be open to us after 4 PM each day, M-F, and all day S,Su. (It doesn't make sense that it would be closed after 4 PM on Friday).
If I am correct Bert will be out of luck at TI, midday and midweek, for these next two weeks.

To clarify, we have been told that at least for the next two weeks:

M-Th - no ramp access.
Friday - no ramp access prior to approx. 4:00 p.m. Opens around 4:00 p.m., when the Navy shuts down their operations for the weekend.
Sat. and Sun. - ramp open.

Parking - no parking on the dirt whatsoever! Unfortunately, in early August we received a strongly worded warning from the director of TIDA, who has been an ally and proponent of our parking and ramp access for years, that parking on the dirt shall cause TIDA to tow your vehicle and close access to the ramp altogether. The warning came with photo's of the offenders' vehicles. Please carry your gear. Don't be the person that causes us to lose access just to save yourself maybe 20 or 30 yards of carrying. The TIDA director has asked us to "self-police" our sailing community. Also, please park away from the occupied apartments.

Nudity and Urinating. While TI can at times seem like the Wild West and there are bigger issues there than old sailors with prostrate issues, families with children do live there. Apparently a tenant complained earlier this summer to TIDA about windsurfers not covering up while changing and urinating on the bushes. Please be discreet.

BTW the navy is testing for radioactive contamination, not urine.
