CLUB PROFILE By Katherine Stone T Charlottetown Yacht Club he Mi'kmaq indigenous peoples referred to her as Epelwik, translated literally as "Lying on the water". When the Europeans first arrived and sailed into the Gulf of St. Lawrence they would soon lay eyes on a beautiful land, covered in red soil that they would call St. John's Island. The French would eventually round the other side of the island to discover a sheltered bay. The settlement of Port La Joye would later be founded in 1720 and an enterprising man, Monsieur Hache-Gallant would use his sloop to ferry Acadians from Louisbourg to St. John's Island. Alas, the British soon took over the island in King George's War and promptly deported the rest of the Acadians that hadn't been shuffled out three years previously. Charlottetown would be named for Queen Charlotte, who was consort of King George III. This was soon followed by the renaming of St. John's Island to Prince Edward Island in honour of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent in 1798. Harry's Blog, on the history of Charlottetown, was a fascinating read and clarified that pleasure boat activity was evident in the harbour in the 1830s. What followed was a long list of clubs that endeavoured to allow the public to enjoy water activities starting with the Charlottetown Regatta Club in the 1840s.
