Club History

In early 1993, Harbormaster David Cawton approached Bob Pitman, who would be the first Commodore, with the idea of forming a Yacht Club. They got together with Rodney Lay, Scott Weiland and a couple of others and formed the Yacht Club. They decided to charge $40 per person, and within one month they had $4,000 in the bank! The first thought was to party! So up to Fort George they went with about 20 boats.

They then arranged the first Fishing Tournament, where the club’s bold fishermen went out all day, and caught nothing! Bob Pitman went to Publix and purchased steaks and they had a cookout.

It is thought that during Chuck Walton’s term as Commodore, the club had the first ball, a grand affair with everyone in black tie. Throughout the years, there has been a variety of attire, from white pants and blazers to Hawaiian attire and everything under the sun!
