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

As we enter Fall, and the off season for boating, we should take a moment to reflect on the boating season just finished. Which things were great, and which could be improved. Those great things we want to repeat, the other perhaps with a little effort could be made great. The Down East Yacht Club, like any club will thrive only if all our members are involved and contribute to our activities.

There are many ways to be involved in our club. Through out the winter and spring seasons there are monthly gatherings, hosted by generous members, both in Maine and in Florida. These are informal parties where you can renew old friendships, and make new ones with new and prospective members. I encourage everyone to use these gatherings as a reason to get out of the house and be social during those long dark evenings, especially in Maine. In addition, there are the more organized events; the Holiday Celebration at Christmas Time, the Winter Ski Weekend in Maine, the Spring Gathering in Florida, and the Commodore’s Luncheon which marks the official end of the off season, and the beginning of the new active boating season.
