Galloway Yacht Club

Club History


In 1979, friends Gunnar Ginters and Andy Anderson decided to form a new yacht club. Bylaws were soon written and Galloway Yacht Club was opened for membership. While the first meetings were held in Ginters’ restaurant, members were soon able to rent and renovate an old bathhouse on the property of Galloway Creek Marina. Unfortunately, expenses became too much for the small club and so began a series of different meeting places from Ginters’ home and front lawn to various other yacht club facilities. Galloway’s home for meetings is now at Middle River Yacht Club’s clubhouse. Although Galloway Yacht Club is small, its members have lots of fun thanks to the inspiration of Gunnar and Andy.
