Cruising and Raft-Ups

One of the many benefits of City Island Yacht Club is its location; at the entrance to Long Island Sound. Whether you’re out for a day sail or a week vacation, CIYC is the ultimate in starting points.

Just a short sail away are some wonderful destinations, including Little Neck Bay, Manhasset Bay and New Rochelle. Just a little farther are day trips to the beaches of Captain’s Island and the July 4th fireworks in Hempstead Harbor. Overnight destinations include Oyster Bay, Northport Harbor, Southern Connecticut, Sandy Hook and picturesque Port Jefferson.

CIYC boasts a large and active contingent of cruisers of all types-from committed day sailors to weekend cruisers to serious long-range passage makers, and each summer we try to schedule events to reflect this diversity. Regardless of one’s goal or experience, we invite all sailors to share in the advantages of safety, discovering new places, and the collective knowledge and camaraderie of CIYC cruising.
