  Club History  
     
 

Stone Horse Yacht Club was founded in 1933 at the then new boat building shed of the Lee Shipbuilding Company (the site now occupied by the Harwichport Boatworks).

At the time of the club's founding, the sailing fleet consited of a good many widely disparate types of borts which had to be handicapped for racing.

The prime movers in the founding of the club were:

  • Bernard Russell Andrews (known as “B.R” to his many friends)
  • Edward Aaron (“Ted”) Davis
  • William Davis Lee
  • Neil Cook McMath
  • Palmer Cosslett Putnam
  • George Ichabod Rockwood
  • Waldo Brown
The Stone Horse burgee and its six stars was designed to recognoze the *six men who started the club (Waldo Brown was also considered to be intergral to the club's founding).
