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

 

Down East Yacht Club- Commodore’s Message

When we joined the Down East Yacht Club 10 years ago, we were immediately welcomed to this boating community by so many friendly members. That is, to us, what the Down East Yacht Club is all about at its core. Sharing a love of boating with a group of friendly, fun loving people. I hope to continue to foster that idea within the club in the coming year.

Even though we are not on the water during the long Winter in Maine, there are other opportunities to have fun with other club members. There are the monthly gatherings both in Maine and in Florida, the annual Christmas Party, the ski weekend at Sugarloaf and, of course, an authentic Maine Lobster Bake in Florida. These are all great events to catch up with friends, and plan for the upcoming boating season.
