OUR STORY AND CURRENT COMMITTEE

The Mieco Beach Yacht Club was founded in 2004 by Liz Rodick (current manager of EZ Price Mart), Grant James (former general manager of the former Outrigger Resort, now the Marshall Islands Resort), Cary Evarts (current yacht club Vice Commodore), Karen Earnshaw (current yacht club Publicity Director), and Ron Douglas (of the yacht Kaimana).

The group’s goal was to provide entertainment for the cruisers by holding races, rallies, and other social activities, which in turn would attract more cruising yachts to the Marshall Islands.

Dee Johnson, a RMI High Court Judge, was elected Commodore and the first race was held on Sunday, November 11, 2004.

After Dee left island, another High Court Judge, Richard Hickson, became the Commodore. He was followed by Liz Rodick, who held the position for a number of years. The 2010-11 season was Cary Evarts’ third as Commodore. In 2014, Pete Allen of the yacht French Kiss was Commodore and in 2015, Clementine Ellasos was Commodore. In March 2016 Becky Lathrop became Commodore.

Our current committee is: Commodore Becky Lathrop, Vice Commodore Cary Evarts, Secretary Pamela Perkins, Treasurer Allen Gale, Publicity Director Karen Earnshaw, Membership Director Bonny Taggart, Quartermaster Judy, Race Director Will Lathrop, Prize Director Dave ???, and Events Director Janet Nixon.
