YAM Holiday Gathering a Jolly Success!

Social Events

This past Saturday approximately thirty members and their guests rallied for Richmond's annual Christmas Parade, followed shortly thereafter by a warm holiday gathering hosted by YAM Committee Members Arch and Katie Durham. Despite a little mist in the air attendance was strong at the parade where children were elated to see the 'Big Guy in Red' welcome them with waving arms and joyous cheer. The gathering afterwards was absolutely wonderful...a beautifully decorated home packed full of tasty holiday treats and seasonal beverages for all to share.  Sincerest thanks to all who came to enjoy the day and especially to our gracious host family, the Durhams!

179 party-goers enjoyed a memorable evening at Richmond’s historic Commonwealth Club on November 17th.

The event started off with a Cocktail Reception with passed hors d’oeuvres.  Members then attended the Annual Meeting to hear year-end reports followed by the election of the 2019 Board of Trustees.  A seated gourmet dinner came next, followed by a Viennese Dessert Buffet.  The 2018 Flag Officers Rob Whittemore, Paul Wash, and Tracy Schwarzschild officiated Awards Ceremony.  Evening entertainment was provided by the Alex Crain Band.

Professional photographer Aaron Sutten took some great pictures.  Follow this link to view the photos.

YAM Cornhole Tournament Rocks the Lawn!

Blake Kimbrough on

Social Events

Light breeze may have truncated the number of races in our Stingray Point Regatta; however, the conditions could not have been more ripe for a front lawn cornhole tournament this past Sunday. Members, guests and teams of all ages from traveling yacht clubs showed up in droves to register their teams and get into the the action...all in all we had a full bracket of 16 teams and a tremendous group of onlooking spectators.

Group Shot 2

As we worked through the bracket in single-elimination fashion down to our final four, eventually the island mood-setting reggae tunes turned to amateur comedic commentary over the PA-system...it felt a little like watching Wimbledon play-by-play analysis performed by Will Farrell and Jimmy Fallon wannabes ...

YAM's first ever Movie Night drew a huge crowd with over 40 members!  "The Sandlot" cranked up at 8:45pm and we saw members of all ages joining in the fun...


Wet weather precluded us from being outside on the lawn, but thanks to our perfectly sized front porch we setup under cover and enjoyed zero mosquitos. Attendees brought their own snacks and drinks, and the YAMs surprised everyone with fresh popcorn and a ‘build your own’ candy bar, complemented by a few sodas and waters for all to share.  Big thanks to our YAM Committee helping organize and execute this fun new event; and thanks as always to club manager, Brian Ankrom, for helping organize and setup!
