North Shrewsbury Ice Boat & Yacht Club

Union Street and Boat Club Court | [map]

The North Shrewsbury Ice Boat & Yacht Club was founded in 1880, in the back room of 3 East Front Street, moving in 1923 to the grounds of the Monmouth Boat Club. Ice boating is an exhilarating sport, with its practitioners avidly awaiting a hard January freeze on the Navesink. The ice boat itself, a graceful craft, is one of Red Bank’s favorite symbols. There is friendly rivalry with Poughkeepsie, New York ice boaters over which club is the oldest.
