The following "history/timeline" was derived from old documents, recorded conversations with early and present club members, newspaper and magazine articles and issues of the Spyglass. Its presentation is in the present tense to give the reader the sense of moving through time as it happened. Member names, for the most part, withheld because if you list one you miss others. In the events and items chosen, I have attempted to reflect, as much as possible, the emphasis of the club at the time. Thus, there are a few more sailing and racing items in the early years, and more fishing, power and cruising items as time passes. Major focus is on activities, club composition, social life, the evolution of the By - Laws and the physical plant. Some items may be in contradiction with other historical renditions. Where there were conflicting accounts, I went with the date or amount that seemed most likely to be correct. Junius Brown III, Wilton, Connecticut 7 December 2008.
