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

Commodore’s Message 

June 11, 2020

Greetings Down Easters,

In a normal year we would be celebrating the arrival of a new boating season with our traditional Launching Party this weekend. Sadly this year is anything but normal. The response to the Covid-19 virus has required that we cancel the Commodore’s Luncheon, and Saturday’s Launching Party.

We are hopeful that we can make the remainder of the season as normal as possible. The Cruise Committee is working very hard to complete the changes made necessary by the various ports’ response to the virus. Several boatyards and dining venues will be open with restrictions, or not open at all. This requires that we change the events planned for some ports, and in some cases the selection of new ports. More information will be available shortly.

We will continue to plan the remaining scheduled events, and will hold them to the extent we are able under whatever guidelines are then in existence.

On behalf of the Bridge and Board of Directors I wish you all a safe and wonderful boating season. Let your boating be the antidote to the weird existence required by the Covid-19 response.

Wishing you fair winds and following seas,

Dennis Hopkins

Commodore
