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.

Letter from the Commodore

27 July 2020

 

Down East Yacht Club Members:

 

As you know my travel has been limited during these COVID times and after discussing the Mini Cruise and remaining events this season with the Board of Directors, the Board thought it best to appoint an acting Commodore to provide local support in Boothbay and to act in my place at the annual meeting on August 29th to ensure a smooth transition of the bridge.  To this end, we are asking P/C George Hamilton to fulfill this role effective immediately.

 

I would like to thank V/C Ron Richardson, R/C Jeanne Koenig, F/C Brent Pope, and the Board of Directors for their support during this season.  Toni and I wish we could have been with you in person.  We hope everyone remains healthy and enjoys the rest of the season in Boothbay Harbor.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dennis Hopkins

Commodore, DEYC
