Chapter 5

During 1984 the bridge also under took the task of finding a new waterfront home for the club. By November the club was considering the Rockport Harbor Fuel Dock. The membership voted in December to approve negotiating a lease from the Navigation District and purchasing the building. The Soundings article shows how the members were to pay for the building and the pictures show what it looked like at purchase time.

Then the work began. Under Commodore Clay Wilcox and building committee chair Al Barnes the first workday was held on Feb 16, 1985 to try and get the building ready for the sailing year. It was gutted and reworked to add heads, extend the deck 10 and generally make it presentable. As opportunities presented themselves people came and helped and eventually the building was painted the lovely blue of our current clubhouse. A waterfront home at last. And in what must have been a first the club welcomed a brand new junior member really junior. Commodore Clay gave birth to Chelsea in July of her commanding year. This was also the year of the 1st annual Christmas Boat Parade of Lights in Little Bay a tradition which continues today in concert with the Chamber of Commerce's Tropical Christmas.
