Formation of the Club

An extract from the Grimsby Evening Telegraph Monday August 18th 1947


"By Odd man Out"

Yacht Club

Years ago, I believe there was a yacht club in Grimsby

There are a number of enthusiasts who think the Premier Fishing Port should have a club, and at a recent meeting one was formed.

On Wed at 7.30 there will be a meeting at the Royal Dock House and all interested in little ships are invited to discuss details."

(The date of the above mentioned meeting was Wed August 20th 1947, the inauguration of the Grimsby Yacht Club. First Commodore Capt' J. Morton Royal Dock Master LNER GY)
