Today’s commissioning ceremony marked the start of the 125th season of Horseshoe Harbor Yacht Club (or, in our book, the shmanciest kayak storage around).
Organized in 1888, HHYC is one of the oldest (and most laid-back) yacht clubs in the U.S. You can see historical pics of the club here, courtesy of the Larchmont Historical Society, and some of the very latest, below.
We skipped the champagne (well, for the most part, ahem) and celebrated by jumping into our yachts and paddling across the Sound to Execution Rocks lighthouse.
Some say it’s haunted. Ooohh! Maybe that’s why the wind swung around from the SSE and blew us back in record time… Video here is en route only—we were too busy surfing whitecaps on the return (both hands required).
