Reviews for Palmer Cove Yacht Club
Best Club, EVER!, 2011-01-22
Captain: , Salem (218)

Great mix of fun people, family oriented. A very nice bar and a comfortable deck with even more facility improvements underway as of January 2011. Also, the coolest Burgie of any club in the area. As a happy member, I am biased, but it's been a great club for me and my family. I also like the 16-hour-per-year club-member participation requirements in helping to keep the club running; you meet all sorts of people that way.
