The New Bern Yacht Club built and gifted a bulletin board to the local West Marine store where announcements regarding local boating events and information could be posted. Pictured are NBYC Commodore Tim Broderick and West Marine Store Manager Jim Simmons.
The New Bern Yacht Club recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. In 1993, seven families, all new to the New Bern Area, established a club to foster their common interests of a passion for boating, a love of the City of New Bern and a shared camaraderie. At first, they met in their homes and later in what is now the Double Tree Hotel. Within a year, the seven founding member families were joined by twenty additional charter family members. In 2001 the members bought a 1930s vintage house on Brices Creek and all pitched in to clear the property and rebuild the structure. In 2006 docks were constructed and in 2008 an addition to the building was added more than doubling the size of the clubhouse
