“Nice? It’s the only thing,” said the Water Rat solemnly as he leant forward for his stroke. “Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing—absolutely nothing—half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. … In or out of ’em, it doesn’t matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that’s the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don’t; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you’re always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you’ve done it there’s always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you’d much better not.”
— Kenneth Grahame, Wind in the Willows
Truer words were never said! If you feel the same way, we invite you to join us at the Royal Savage Yacht Club. You won’t find blue blazers or a fancy clubhouse, just a fun loving and welcoming group of people who love boats. Any boats. Power boats, sail boats, row boats, canoes and kayaks. We have folks who love cruising, sailing, racing or just hanging out at anchor and watching the clouds float by.
Take some time to check out our many activities on the website. You’ll find we offer social events including club breakfasts, burger burns, parties and potlucks at our club tent, educational activities from formal courses to new-found friends who know stuff, cruising trips like our weeklong summer cruise of Lake Champlain, sailboat racing with our Fast Sail program and amazing camaraderie centered on our love of boats. Come join us. You’ll be glad you did!
