Welcome to the City Island Yacht Club


City Island Yacht Club (CIYC) has been a haven for sailors for more than 100 years. Located in the Bronx on Long Island Sound, CIYC is a thriving community of enthusiastic sailors and a friendly gathering place for those who enjoy time on the water or those who aspire to spend more time on the water! 

CIYC members hail from Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Westchester County, Long Island and New Jersey. They are both expert and casual racers, long-distance, weekend cruisers and day sailors who enjoy both a breezy afternoon on the boat and socializing afterwards in our lively waterfront restaurant and pub, as they admire the dramatic sunset backdrop.
