Members of the Anchor Yacht Club in Bristol handle a defense obstacle used by American troops during the Revolutionary War. The 28-foot-long wooden spear is known as a cheval de frise and is equipped with a sharp iron tip used to puncture the bottom of British war ships. According to historians, it is one of only four that have been recovered.

UPDATE:  It has finally found a home and has made its way to East Carolina University where it will be put on display.


The Delaware River Yachtsmen's League (D.R.Y.L.) was founded in 1914 by Frederick Von Nieda of Camden, NJ. The League was formed with five clubs which were Camden Yacht Club, Columbia Yacht Club, Farragut Sportsmen's Club, Trenton Yacht Club and Wissinoming Yacht Club.  It has grown into an organization that has over 5,000 members which come from 37 Yacht Clubs and Organizations that cover the boating area  from the Delaware River in Trenton, N.J. to the Cohansey River in the Delaware Bay and also includes the Lagoon View Yacht Club on Barnaget Bay.  We are also affiliated with 4 Boating Organizations.... The National Boating Federation, The Pennsylvania Boating Assoc., The Chesapeake Bay Yacht Clubs Assoc. and The Boater Voter Coalition.
