I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in Ocean Gate Yacht Club. As many of you may be aware, Ocean Gate Yacht club is one of the oldest continually operating yacht clubs on the Barnegat Bay, established in 1909. We are a charter member of the Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association and have a proud heritage of championship sailors beginning with our incorporation in 1909. Many of our members participate throughout the entire sailing season on the bay.
Like many of the shore communities Ocean Gate Yacht Club was impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Today we continue to actively emphasis sailing and boating at all levels like our founding fathers had established. Our Junior Sailing Program is thriving while incorporating new and innovative ways to keep more and more juniors involved in sailing. We are also a social organization sponsoring events throughout the entire year for all our members. We are a volunteer organization and all our members are asked to help in club activities. The views from our deck are probably the best views of any club on the bay. The sunsets are magnificent and many of our members have recorded great pictures of those sunsets. We maintain a private club liquor license for the use of our members and their guests in the Tim-Bo Lounge located off our main social room. We have established a happy hour on Friday nights during most of the year.
After Sandy, some of our infrastructure was damaged but through the generosity of our members and all the volunteers we have come back better than ever. Our physical plant is brand new with many updates being accomplished since Sandy. Our membership is thriving allowing for several membership categories at reasonable competitive rates to be continued.
Please take some time to visit our club to witness its great heritage and exciting atmosphere. If you would like any additional information about the club, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Again we appreciate your interest and look forward to welcoming you as a new member.
