EastBayRI.com reports that plans are afoot in Warren, Rhode Island, to establish a yacht club, which hopes to make a home in the old Warren Marina at 66 Church Street.
The club will host a membership drive and open house at the location on Saturday, May 19, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., with live entertainment.
The club still needs town and state approval before it can become a reality. Tara Thibaudeau, the club’s treasurer, was quoted as saying that the club would serve as a social gathering place for local boaters.
Fishing tournaments, clambakes, parties and other events are being discussed, along with raftups at Potter’s Cove on Prudence Island.
Residents need not own boats to be members.
