HEMPSTEAD BAY YACHT CLUB. A Prosperous Organization on the South Shore of Long Island.

LONG BEACH, L. I., April 19, 1896 The yacht club of the south side of Long Island gives more evidence of prosperity than the Hempstead Bay Club. It has a large, active membership, and its colors are seen at regattas and yachting stations everywhere. Although, by reason of their many shallows and bars, Hempstead and Great South Bays are not equal for yachting purposes to the Sound and its many harbors, tht Hempstead Bay Club has become one of the leading and influential yachting organizations of the metropolitan district.

The club was organized in 1890. Its charter members were William E. Clowes, Bergen R. Carman, Alanson Abrams, Frank Place, Carman R. Lush, Isaac N. Carman, Seaman L. Pettit, Charles H. Southard, Thomas D. Smith, and John S. Snedeker.

The clubhouse is situated on Elder Island, about one and a half miles east of Long Beach. Elder Island is near the mouth of Jones's Inlet, whichothas been the scene during the past ten years of many fatal wrecks. The clubhouse commands an excellent view for miles, of both the Great South Bay and the ocean, the latter being separated from the clubhouse only by a long, narrow sandbar, which at high tide is but a few feet above the breakers.

During the past year extensive improvements have been made to the clubhouse. Among them are four bedrooms, a kitchen, a ladies' reading room, sitting room, and dining room. Large verandas have also been added, and also many plank walks and floats. The yacht club's fleet consists of the following yachts and launches:
