Beginning of the Down East Yacht Club

On a warm summer day in June 1966 a group of yachtsmen at the BOATEL MARINA (now Tugboat) was standing on the docks having a good time laughing and telling jokes when Vernal Furbush, owner of the BOATEL, came down on the wharf and wanted to know why we didn't start some sort of a "FUN CLUB" because the group was always getting together on one boat or another having such a good time.

It was talked over amongst the yachtsmen in the Marina and adjoining docks and they thought it sounded like a good idea. We told Mr. Furbush that we would start a club and he offered us a room, in what was the old Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club, where we could hold our activities.

On September 17th, 1966 a meeting was called; an agenda was prepared so that the meeting would cover all pertinent points. At this time Janie Hart seemed to be the prime mover in getting the project into gear.

Commodore's Message

Greetings,

Although I have only been a member a relatively short time compared to many of you, I’ve had a great time as Fleet Captain and moving up the ladder. I’ve had a chance to get to know many of you and have grown to respect the wide variety of personalities!

The DEYC will continue to have many fun events that involve planning, coordination and active participation not only by the Bridge, Committee Chairs and Board of Directors, but also it’s members — especially new members who are encouraged to volunteer whenever possible.

Summer, and sadly the boating season, is winding down but that won’t end the fun. During the winter we will have a Christmas Party and there are winter gatherings hosted each month by members at their homes both in Maine and Florida. We kick off the new boating year with the Commodore’s Luncheon followed closely by the annual Launch Party and Summer Cruise!
