On Saturday, May 22, the Greenwich Boat & Yacht Club held its 83rd annual commissioning event.
The club was organized in 1938, making it one of the oldest boat clubs in town.
The club was founded to encourage the sports of yachting, sailing, boating, fishing and related activities, to support the art of seamanship and navigation, and to make facilities available for its members in the pursuit of such sport.
The club is a prime example of a public/private partnership that provides benefits to residents, without incurring operational costs for the town.
Membership is open to all Greenwich residents.
