Wiscasset Yacht Club is accepting applications for membership. All boating enthusiasts are invited to an Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 30. Meet club members, take a tour of the clubhouse and grounds, share in some refreshments, and enjoy the many scheduled activities.
Sailing instructor Tom Stoner and some of his students will be at the boat shed eager to show off the sailboat fleet and to introduce prospective members to the new Adult Sailing Program. And Safety & Education Chairman John McMullen, a USCG certified examiner, will be conducting vessel safety checks throughout the day at the dock. The kids will love the Maine State Aquarium’s tide pool display where they can touch sea urchins, starfish, sand dollars, and more. And two essential safety demonstrations are not to be missed. The first, on the correct deployment of a life raft, will take place at 11:00 a.m., followed at 1:00 p.m by a hands-on demonstration of the proper way to use emergency flares. Representatives from Maine Island Trails and the Maine State Department of Marine Resources will also be on hand to provide information and answer questions about their organizations.
Whether or not you own a boat or just love to be around them, Wiscasset Yacht Club has much to offer. In addition to full use of the clubhouse and its amenities, members can take advantage of a jam-packed calendar of events. From sailing and safe boating programs to socials, and the ever popular movie nights, grille nights, and Sunday coffees, there is something for everyone.
Wiscasset Yacht Club is located at 2 Water Street on the Wiscasset waterfront. Come by car or come by boat for a safety check. Everyone is welcome!
