The Beginning of June 1966, a group of yachtsmen at the Boatel Marina dock (now the Tugboat) was laughing, telling jokes and having a great time. A brainstorm : why not start a ‘FUN CLUB’ for boaters? A room was offered by the Boatel and the club, with 13 members, was initiated. 40 years later, the Club burgee can be seen along the East and West coasts with members enjoying the ‘FUN CLUB’ and its activities year around.
The Harraseeket Yacht Club hosts a variety of racing events each season. While competitive, the goal of racing at HYC is to foster sportsmanship, friendship and seamanship. Active club membership is limited to 250 persons, primarily because of the limited size of the facilities.
The history of KYC dates back to the early 1920s and is fascinating reading (so is the club newsletter, The Waterline!). This has always been a seasonal yacht club dedicated to sailing instruction for young people, racing among one design boats, and general recreational sailing, cruising and power boating. We are fortunate to be located in one of the most scenic and welcoming harbors on the coast of Maine. Visitors are welcome we have gasoline, diesel and ice available at the club dock and moorings available for visiting yachts.
Majuro and the Marshall Islands is the perfect place to sit out the cyclone season as we have lots of fun and activities each season. Mieco Beach Yacht Club (MBYC), on the beautiful tropical Lagoon of Majuro Atoll, offers pristine diving, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, fishing, skiing, sailing, and power boating all within palm tree lined sandy beaches with lapping warm crystal clear ocean water. The Club was founded in late 2003 by a group of cruisers and a resort manager for two main reasons: To give the cruisers something to do when they are in port and not visiting the outer atolls, and to attract yachts to Republic of Marshall Islands (RMI) for sponsored racing.
The Annapolis Yacht Club Foundation (AYCF) was established by the Annapolis Yacht Club to provide an opportunity for its members to act collectively to foster local excellence in national and international amateur sailing competition, contribute to maritime-related charitable and educational organizations in the Mid-Chesapeake Bay region, and support charitable and educational activities undertaken by the Club. The Cruising Fleet is comprised of AYC members with roughly 1/3 sailing vessels and 2/3 power, all of whom enjoy cruising the Chesapeake and, occasionally, distant waters. Other than membership in AYC, there are no requirements to join the Cruising Fleet.
