Gulfport Yacht Club Breaks Ground On Clubhouse

It's a sign of life to come near Gulfport's harbor. The Gulfport Yacht Club broke ground on its new clubhouse Friday.

The new $8.5 million facility will boast 26,000 square feet of amenities, including a restaurant and large ballroom. It's also being built stronger, to withstand future hurricanes.

The Yacht Club had just completed $2 million in renovations when Katrina destroyed it. The new club should be finished by next summer.
