The Omena-Traverse Yacht Club has been is existence for more than 50 years. It is a unique facility in a lovely location where fellowship binds together those who attend.
An excerpt from the Breeze of April 1950:
"That first summer of the clubs existence we held some races, incorporated, secured a lease on the clubhouse and slowly the Omena-Traverse
Yacht Club began to take a concrete form. Last summer our Lightning fleet increased and so did the interest in the club by ALL of the
members. Instead of being the labor of love of a few, it became an interest and activity of everyone connected with it. Committees began
to function with more and more success. A good waterfront program took shape with the building of the new dock. The club paid for its
building and now we are planning to improve our newly acquired real estate."
"But what of the future? Can and will we continue to improve and expand? The answer is a firm and definite yes. All of us have much
to gain in the club. Whether sailing in the races or serving at a potluck banquet the club offers an opportunity for fellowship and
relaxation that no other type of organization can accomplish with so relatively little effort. The future is as bright as we wish
to make it and by continuing to pull together we can make our club second to none."
