the walls of a decrepit boathouse on Emory Cove (see photograph) is
a history of regattas with the dates and names of the victorious and
their boats dating from 1899. This small group of youths comprised
was then known as the "Corsica Yacht Club," the precursor to the
present day CRYC.
A yacht club reminiscent of "Spanky
and Our Gang," it was created by local youths to provide a bit of
fun on the Corsica.
We have continued in that tradition: a club of volunteers, many of
whom were CRYC youths, dedicated to making the sailing experience
available to the youth of Queen Anne's County. Between the CYC and
CRYC, over a hundred years of youth sailing has taken place on
Spaniard's Neck; and we've done it without a club house!
CYC boathouse on Emory Cove dated 1899 with the names of their
boats: "Flying Dutchman," "Elnora," "Apache," "Island Queen."
Members were L. Carter, '99, '00, '01, '02; W. Carter '99,'02; A.
Harlow; R. Emory. The boathouse was destroyed during Hurricane
Isabel in 2003.
