Overlooking Lake Memphremagog very close to the Vermont (USA) – Quebec (Canada) border, the Clubhous is the headquarters and nerve center of the Northeast Kingdom Open Water Swimming Association (NEKOWSA).
Owned and managed by the irrepressible Phil White, the NEKOWSA headquarters is located in Derby, Vermont in order to promote and coordinate open water swims and endurance events in the legendary lakes of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, a wonderfully beautiful part of the eastern United States.
The Clubhous includes a Situation Room, a Training Table, Hospitality Suites, a Storage Center plus barbecue facilities and wonderful Habitation Quarters with views of the majestic Lake Memphremagog whose colors and temperament seem to change as the sun travels from east to west.
