The Kingsmill Yacht Club is open to all "Kingsmill residents". Founded in 1976, the Kingsmill Yacht Club provides an enthusiastic group of members with a variety of opportunities for boating and socializing activities. The core element of membership is a love of waterborne sports whether enjoyed through boat ownership in the present or buoyed by memories of previous times afloat. In addition to various boating events in home or foreign waters, we organize a winter series of lectures on topics of marine interest and also summer trips on aquatic themes. Our Commodore’s Ball is a traditional feature of the Kingsmill year.
