Commodore Lottimer’s Good Idea
One evening during the month of September 1890, while at anchor off Stamford, and about to man Fenella's gig, the unpleasantness of being obliged to go up a long and twisting channel before arriving at a point where one could find a suitable landing came rather forcibly to the mind of Commodore William A. Lottimer, and the idea came to him that there was no reason why Stamford could not and should not have a yacht club, not only for the benefit of the yacht owners, but also for others who might enjoy spending an afternoon or evening with their families down by the water.
So, on the evening of October 16, 1890, a few gentlemen met by invitation at the residence of Mr. William A. Lottimer, Richmond Hill, Stamford, Conn., for the purpose of organizing a yacht club. At this meeting it was voted to name the club the Stamford Yacht Club. Twelve gentlemen were appointed an Executive Committee, empowered to draft a constitution and by-laws, and to procure a club house, or a site for the erection of one, on the shores of Stamford Harbor.
