Since its first race in 1911, CIYC has been a leader in promoting yacht racing at the western end of Long Island Sound. Our goal is to create a fun, friendly and inclusive environment for racers of all abilities. Partnering with other yacht clubs and organizations, we offer a wide variety of regattas that appeal to both the novice sailor as well as the seasoned racer. For the novice racer, sailboat racing is the quickest way to learn how to improve your sailing skills, and for experienced racers, the learning continues.
Come join us, whatever your skill level!
