A new Yacht Club for Montserrat

The Montserrat Yacht Club is being reestablished following a meeting for interested persons on Sunday, April 10 at 4:00 P.M.  This meeting was held at the Soca Cabana on the beach at Little Bay.

The purpose of this meeting was to determine the  level of interest in reestablishing The Montserrat Yacht Club, electing officers and adopting rules and by-laws.

The main organizer behind this move is Dwayne Lovett, former president of the Montserrat property Owners Association, supported by owners of Soca Cabana, Tom and MaryAnn Walker.

According to an earlier release the main objectives of this new club are: (a)  To further yachting, both sail and power, on the waters about Montserrat.  (b)  To teach and foster good seamanship and sportsmanship to both adults and young people; and, (c)  To provide and encourage the development of facilities both afloat and ashore for local and visiting yachtsmen.

Lovett had said that there had been some interest shown by persons on island and overseas to reestablish the yacht club. He said the meeting was a success and an executive has already been elected to see the club off the ground.

“It went well we had 36 people to sign up so we’re at the stages of forming a club and we elected officers… and we had an officers meeting,” Lovett said, adding the next meeting will be on May 7.

The main organizer informed that anyone joining by the next meeting , “will be a charter member. There full member and family member categories. In addition, he said the interest is coming from,  “a good cross section of people and we’re moving forward with it.”

Most of all, Lovett said, he is very much interested in promoting the youth in the yachting business.
