Welcome

2019-2020 – CELEBRATING 54 YEARS of BOATING FUN!!!!

The Beginning – 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. Over 50 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.

  • Club Cruises - power and sail – all are welcome                                                                
  • Annual Cruise from Boothbay Harbor to Northeast Harbor
  • Annual Mini Cruise – exploring other Maine harbors                                                                                    
  • Year round get-togethers via land and sea                                                                                 
  • Launch and Haul out parties                       
  • Picnics/Socials throughout the summer
  • Day Tripper Events
  • Winter Ski weekend
  • Winter Florida gathering
  • Moorings and Dockage at the Tug Boat Inn in downtown Boothbay Harbor, Maine
  • Mooring share program along the coast

Commodore’s Message 

April 14, 2020

Members of the Down East Yacht Club,

The Down East Yacht Club is known as and intends to be “The Fun Club.” Our having fun is second only to the safety of our members. The current Coronavirus situation has forced our Bridge and Board of Directors to make some difficult decisions. The Commodore’s Luncheon and the Launch Party will not be held on the dates we had planned. Because we do not know when we will be able to again socialize, we are unable to determine if these events will be rescheduled, or will be lost for this season. The Bridge and Board will continue to monitor the situation and will plan to “re-open” the season as soon as we are able. We are anxious to restart the fun, but will do so only when we can ensure the safety of our members. We will communicate our plans for the season as soon as we are able.

Stay safe,

Dennis

Commodore Dennis Hopkins
