Welcome to the CIYC Club Boat Program!

This program allows you to sail our Club Boats in a terrific sailing venue at your convenience, with virtually none of the responsibility of actual ownership.

Our Club Boat Fleet has a few different types of boats including a number Catalina 25’s, and a J/24 for those interested in a path toward racing. Our J/24 Club Boat, J PUDDLEDUCK will be used for racing, captained by experienced racers, for low-key training sessions.

Perhaps you’ve just completed an initial sailing course and are keen to gain experience for your own dream boat someday. Perhaps you’re an experienced skipper between boats, or tired of personal boat ownership, or perhaps your Swan is currently lying in the Bahamas and you want to have a little local fun. Maybe you’d just like to meet and sail with new companions. Whatever the reason, we are offering this attractive option at very nominal cost.clubboat_DSC01954

You will also gain membership to one of the most vibrant Yacht Clubs on the Long Island Sound, with many attendant benefits: The unrivaled camaraderie of fellow CIYC sailors, wonderful Restaurant and Pub facilities with outstanding west views, exciting social events through the season, reciprocity with other Yacht Clubs, and on.

For those more interested in honing their racing skills, CIYC has partnered with the Oakcliff Sailing Center in Oyster Bay. Joining both organizations at a dual membership discount entitles you to all the above benefits of CIYC and its Club Boat program, and access to Oakcliff Sailing and their unique training and coaching programs. 

We also have sailing instruction available through our ASA School. Completion of the level 101 course as well as a checkout by an experienced member of the club is required for skippering, but not crewing our boats.clubboat_DSC01617

Join in the fun, fascination, and stimulating challenge of the sailing life. Please contact our Club Boat liaison, for more information.
