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 (formerly 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, Cary Evarts, Karen Earnshaw, Pete Allen, Clementine Ellasos, Rebecca ‘Becky’ Lathrop and (currently) joint Commodores Chuck Gauthier and Karen Thomas.
Over the years, the club’s committee has included many energetic and enthusiastic members and to all those people, we say komol tata (thank you).
