It has just been announced that the Clubhouse in Gustavia will reopen on December 12. However, until a few post-Irma “short-term inconveniences” can be ironed out – no air conditioning, no washing or bathroom facilities, and drinks will be served in disposable cups – opening hours will be limited to between 6 pm and 9 pm.
Meanwhile, on Monday, December 18, the Commodore is hosting a soirée in Monaco for Gustavia Yacht Club members from 6:30 pm to 9 pm.
Over Christmas drinks and canapés, the gathering is to bring together those members of the Club who have not left yet for warmer climates ahead of the holiday season and to celebrate the New Year.
Updates will be given on the preparations to open the Clubhouse in Gustavia, on the status of the IRMA disaster relief fund and the latest on reciprocal arrangements with other Yacht Clubs.
Gustavia Yacht Club also hosted a joint event with the Manhattan Yacht Club in New York on December 6, represented by Treasurer Ken Griggs and interim Club Manager Celia Meralikan, who is now in St Barts in an attempt to open the Clubhouse as early as possible.
Members who wish to attend the Monaco Christmas cocktail should contact Celia Meralikan at Gustavia Yacht Club.
