And there's humor-the Coast Guard towing the transom out of a swamped small boat, young sailors "blockading" an intrusive ferryboat, and children trying to sail into the wind.Founded in 1933 by a handful of sailing enthusiasts in New London, Connecticut, and maintained by its members, the club today boasts a membership of nearly 200 and a fleet of more than 150 boats. The club's location on the west bank of the Thames River, a mile from Long Island Sound, affords quick access to some of the finest cruising and racing waters in the country.
