ECBC buying Royal Cape Breton Yacht Club
Commodore Darryl Cormier
The Royal Cape Breton Yacht Club is selling its five-acre property on the Esplanade in Sydney for $280,000.00 to Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation.
The century old private club has shrunk to 61 members and will be moving the operations end of the facility to another club.
The marina will remain, as will the boat house.
We spoke with the acting Commodore Darryl Cormier at the Yacht club earlier today...here is our conversation.
