Educational is an important part of the Yachting Experience. Waterford Yacht Club gives members a chance to learn more about the maintenance and operation of their investment. Some of the presentations will help the member to be a better Yachtsman and feel more secure when operating his or her boat.

The recent Havana Nights Themed Commodore’s Ball was a huge success and a great start to a marvelous 2018.  Again, this year, we acknowledged our former Commodore, Larry Wiper’s birthday during the Ball.

I challenge you to increase participation, recruit fellow boat neighbors, and make YOUR Waterford Yacht Club even better in 2018! Remember to check the on-line calendar on a regular basis for newly added activities during the month. And lastly, hold on to the handrails, because it’s going to be exciting year!
