The inaugural meeting of the Milford Cruising Club (Inc) was held in Mr Gee's Tearooms on 11th December 1923. An enthusiastic group met and the first Commodore was appointed, Mr Warbrick, who won the election on the toss of a coin! The Club bought an old house for fifty pounds in 1924 and moved it to the Wairau Estuary.
