Located in Brothers Cove in Millidgeville, The Moorings is an ideal location for a yacht owner. Brothers Cove is a well known anchorage just off the Kennebecasis River.

The St. John River is known far and wide as "The Rhine of America" and offers fabulous boating. There are numerous branches off the River where you can anchor or tie up at a wharf. Larger deep keel yachts are easily accommodated and the river valley has spectacular scenery as you ghost along. Salmon jumping just add to the delightful feeling you get when sailing on this true yachting paradise.
For ocean racers or long-range cruisers, the St. John River empties into the Bay of Fundy which in turn opens to the Atlantic Ocean. Yachts from the RKYC have participated in the Marblehead to Halifax Ocean Race, the Newport to Bermuda Race, Several crews from the RKYC have crossed the Atlantic and there have been numerous visits to the Caribbean by yachts from the Club.
