riverdayABYA formed the ABYA Past Commodores Club in 1971. This Club was opened to all ABYA member club Past Commodores, mainly as a social group to encourage fellowship between clubs.

Anchor Bay Yachting Association membership meetings are held on the first Monday of each month with a different club hosting the meeting each month. There are, however, exceptions to these meeting schedules, which are given to our membership.  All ABYA Past Commodores are considered delegates and may attend meetings and vote on all matters coming before the membership.  Most clubs send their Past Commodores as their delegate.     

At our General Membership Meeting, a speaker is usually invited to discuss various issues of interest to the boating community.  Delegates from the various member clubs of the ABYA then disseminate this same information to the membership of their own clubs.

The ABYA also promotes camaraderie among its members by sponsoring various social functions throughout the year. The year’s first major event is our Spring Rendezvous, which is usually held the first weekend of March.  This event has grown throughout the years to the point where we now have approximately 400 members attending for the weekend activities.  The highlight of the weekend is the very popular RUBBER BAND BOAT RACES.  These boats built by members of our member clubs can cover the distance of thirty feet in a swimming pool in less than a second.  The speeds that these boats achieve has forced us to go from stop watches to an electronic timing device just so the times could be recorded accurately.

In June of each year, we host a Spring Dinner Dance at one of our member island clubs.  This event has been a good kickoff to the boating season.
