FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. — The Fort Walton Yacht Club will celebrate its 60th anniversary in September.
The club was founded in 1961, and its early members played a key role in developing the area, club historian Jim Baughman said to the Northwest Florida Daily News.
The club has been one of the more affordable clubs, he said. The club land was donated and was built for $20,000.
A 60th anniversary celebration will be Sept. 24 and 25. It will feature dinners, regattas and a slideshow of images from the club’s past.
