City Island Yacht Club is ideally located on Eastchester Bay at the western end of Long Island Sound near where the East River meets the Sound under the Throggs Neck Bridge. The confluence of currents, land masses and typical wind patterns often gives Eastchester Bay “the Best Breeze on the Sound”!

In addition to the Club’s own restaurant and events, the picturesque village of City Island with its many restaurants, galleries and shoppes is within easy walking distance of the Club.

For racers, City Island Yacht Club hosts numerous regattas that cater to experienced and novice sailors alike. Check out our REGATTAS AND RACING page to learn more information.

For cruisers, some of the Sound’s best cruising destinations are within easy reach of a day sail from City Island. Our  CRUISING page provides additional details.

City Island Yacht Club also offers various programs for new sailors and prospective boat owners. These include:

  • An in-house ASA SAILING SCHOOL for entry level sailors that want to learn how to sail  
  • A CLUB BOAT PROGRAM  for more experienced non-boat owners wanting to sail on their own and eventually transition to boat ownership.
  • An award winning active JUNIOR SAILING program for young people that want to learn how to sail.
