2022 Cruising Schedule

Cruise to Norwalk Islands, September 10-11

The City Island Yacht Club and Harlem Yacht Club announce a weekend cruise to the Norwalk Islands.  Leaving City Island on Sept 10, we will rendezvous at an anchorage off of Sheffield Island.  We will enjoy cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres and excursions to the Norwalk Islands before breaking up for the evening. Each boat may choose an anchorage or a marina for the night of Sept 10 among several options.  The flotilla will return to City Island on Sept 11.  Please join us for this fun cruise to a beautiful area of the Long Island Sound.

Harlem Yacht Club Invites CIYC Members

On August 28 at Noon, the Harlem Yacht Club is leading a one-day cruise down the East River to Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, and the Lower Bay. This will be a great ride for young and old. Watch the lights come up in downtown and take the tide North back to City Island. We should be returning to HYC by 7:30 PM.  All members of CIYC are welcome! 
This will be a flotilla style adventure. While you can’t sail down the East River, we will sail once we pass the Battery. We will pass through Hell Gate while it’s slack or a favorable current.  We will wait for the tide to turn and then travel North. Make sure your engine, radio and nav lights are in working order. Also, if you are bringing guests, make sure you have the proper PFD’s aboard. Bring lunch, liquids, and a camera.
If you would like to join the flotilla or have any questions, please contact:
