Where Land and Water Meet
In 1947, Sidney Banks initiated the addition of a ten by forty foot float on which boating and yachting activities could find a natural home tucked back on the point. That following summer, the Club hosted its first sailing races and its first Urbanna cruise. That first float was followed by a ten-slip pier crafted of hardwoods taken from Club property. Soon the Cavalier was known as one of the finest yacht clubs on the East Coast and membership continued to grow. Today, with our exciting new improvements, we will be poised to continue our rich history by offering the unique combination of Marina, Golf, Recreation and Event facilities to the families that make up our membership.
