"In 1853 seven men who loved sailing founded the Carolina Yacht Club. Richard Bradley, Parker Quince, John Reston, Talcott Burr, Daniel Baker, T.M. Gardner, and Richard J. Jones took sailing only a little less seriously than their work in law, banking, publishing, commerce and public service. They fiercely competed in regattas on the river, sound, and sea, and celebrated their victories at merry Banks parties.
Today the one thousand members of the Carolina Yacht Club carry on the tradition of sailing and socializing." --CYC Chronicles
