City Island Yacht Club

Incorporated 1907

Welcome to the City Island Yacht Club

For over a century our club has been the best place for New York City area boaters of all stripes to enjoy the water. The 2016 season marks our 109th year of continuous operation. As always, we look forward to another season of good sailing, good food, festivities with old friends at the Club and on the water. Centrally located at the Western End of Long Island Sound, the City Island Yacht Club is the perfect place to sail up the Long Island Sound, down the East River, or a perfect daysail.

If you’re a boat owner, you’ll find deep-water moorings, 24-hour launch service with trained and experienced operators  and a professionally run yard with haul-out and winter storage available.

You need not be a boat owner to join the CIYC. The club has a significant social membership with club owned boat availability. Social members sail and race with boat owning members regularly. All you need is an interest in meeting a group of like-minded people that are happy to help you learn the joy of sailing. City Island Yacht Club organizes and sponsors a full season of racing with serious competition on the course and congenial post-race conversation on the porch and in the pub, as well as cruising programs to near and distant waters. Check back at this site for schedules of seminars, parties, special events, races, and cruises.

Please see our Membership page for further information. We welcome new and prospective members to visit and to tour our facilities. Contact our Membership Co-Chair, Carl Leighton: membership(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign) or call the Club office at 718-885-2487
