The newest facility at Westpoint Harbor will be a two-story building with a restaurant on the ground floor, a clubhouse and patio on the first floor with views of the Bay and the marina, and a large outdoor patio overlooking the harbor, as well as an outdoor pool and pool house. Construction will commence in the next several weeks.

“This is a great milestone for The Club,” said Peter Blackmore, president of the board at The Club at Westpoint. “We are looking forward to a new building to provide our members, current and future, with a vibrant, modern and friendly gathering place to enjoy the water, the views, an award-winning junior sailing program, and the very best in arts and entertainment. The vision of Westpoint Harbor always included a club and a restaurant, and it is wonderful to see this vision come to life — adding even more energy and excitement to an already buzzing harbor with over two miles of Bay access trails for all to enjoy.”

“The Club at Westpoint is a social club for boaters and non-boaters alike. The Club was formed at the beginning of 2018 to offer a place where people come together, in sophisticated surroundings, to enjoy the arts and entertainment, appreciate and promote all forms of watercraft and waterborne activities, and to relax, dine and socialize with other members.”
