Rose Haven Yacht Club (our Ancestors)
The Rose Haven Yacht Club was formed not long after the creation of the Rose Haven basin in the early 1950's by Joe Rose.
Ah, The Good Old Days
Into the 1970's, the Rose Haven Yacht Club enjoyed robust membership...
Herring Bay Yacht Club - The Rebirth
In 1979, after the marina and yacht club had fallen into disrepair, the change in ownership resulted in a rebirth for both the basin and the yacht club. In 1990, the club was renamed and restarted as "The Herring Bay Yacht Club"... which brought a new focus to a wider array of boaters who wanted to share their love of the Chesapeake Bay, the Herring Bay, and boating in general.
As part of the HBYC 24th Anniversary in 2014, the Club honored Francis Jordan (Member Emeritus and oldest living member of the original Rose Haven Yacht Club) at our Opening Day ceremonies...
Over 200 people now participate as members of the HBYC club... joining with like-minded boaters and enjoying the array of activities sponsored by the club...
