20 May 2013, The Journal’s Potomac River Festival
Good days for the Colonial Yacht Club as they march in the parade. Back when gas was under $2 a gallon!
Colonial Beach Yacht Club The Colonial Yacht Center plays host to hundreds of boats docked at the Marina and is the home base for the Yacht Club. Members come from all over but many live in the town of Colonial Beach. Members of the club also dock at other area marinas in Monroe Bay; Parker’s, Winki Doodle Point, Nightingale, Stanford’s as well as Harbor View Marina in Mattox Creek, but the Colonial Yacht Center is the hub ,of activity. Colonial Yacht Center is located at the mouth of Monroe Bay where it meets the Potomac River. The Club meets at least once a month and sponsors or participates in many activities throughout the year such as the boat parade during the Colonial Beach River Festival, cruises throughout the year, social gatherings, and the National Jet Ski races on July 19-21. New members are always welcome, the only catch is you must be a boat owner to join. Members become lifetime after 25 years and continue to enjoy all the benefits of the group even after they retire their boats. Anyone wishing to join the group or just learn more about them can call (804) 224-4145 or E-mail Jlperkey@aol.com. - Linda Farneth
