The EEMYC as it is commonly known, was formed by a group of adventurous individuals from the Eastern end of the island. With backgrounds of mini-yachts carved from cedar logs with lead keels and cloth sails as their guides, these men set out to establish a club house for the Comet Class sailboat which was already wide spread across the island.
During the year of 1968, the official fleet charter was established, filling St. Georges Harbour with a fleet of approximately 22 multi-colored Bermuda built Comets. Membership grew over the years with interest from area residents and nearby St. Davids creating a family and community club any community would be proud of. Sailing received a much needed boost by the introduction of the single handed dinghy the Phantom in the early 80’s; along with darts and golf providing an option for those non-mariners of the club. Although the Club’s location has remained the same over our first 2 years, structural changes has provided both members and non-members with a most attractive facility on the Harbour of St. Georges.
We at the East End Mini Yacht Club would like to welcome all visiting yachtsmen to Bermuda and to wish all participants of the “1992 Comet Internationals” the best of Luck.
