A little History of Club: The Fairfield Bay Yacht Club was organized in 1988 by Fred Cruise, Charlie Heaton, Tom Noll, and Dick Owen. 1989 was the Club’s firs year for scheduled events and activities. In 1989, the club consisted of a total 156 members.
Our membership drive is March 19, 2016 from 3-6 p.m. at the Marina. The Marina will be open until 6 p.m. The Yacht Club will provide wine and appetizers. Our membership dues will be $20 each this year. We are looking at providing discounts on services/local businesses to offset the increase in dues. Everyone will be provided a membership card.
