City Island Yacht Club

Incorporated 1907

Racing Program


CIYC offers an all-year racing program in the classes Optimist, Laser, and 420. The sailors initially practice once or twice a week and compete in regattas in the New York area. They learn and grow in a supportive team of other young sailors. It is our long-term goal for every young sailor (who is committed) to work with them up to the intercollegiate and possibly international level. 


Anyone can attend – no prior knowledge required. We start with the basics and work with the children up to the competitive racing level.


We usually meet Saturdays and/or Sundays.
