In the late 1990’s Des Townson lent the Club three Electron Yachts to sail and the love affair between these beautiful little radio controlled yachts and Watchman Island Yacht Club began. Members were quickly buying one or more of their own Electrons and the fleet numbers sailing from the Club rooms grew to the point where regular sailing was moved to Westhaven for both summer & winter series, ocean races, endurance races & match racing.

The Club rooms continue to host Christmas parties, AGM’s and other important events in the WIYC calendar.
