Rich in history, the North Shore Yacht Club was established in 1871 as the New York Canoe Club. It is the oldest yacht club on Long Island and for people with or without a boat. Its fleet consists almost exclusively of sailboats, ranging from small one-designs to ocean-going vessels. We boast a diverse membership that includes experienced cruisers, blue water racers, and new sailors. The Club offers a well-sheltered mooring area protected by land on three sides, with quick and easy access to the Sound. Boat Share Program  & Jr  Sailing Program round out the Club’s attractiveness for all ages. The North Shore Yacht Club is for people who love sailing, with membership fees a fraction of the cost of other yacht clubs and marinas. Members enjoy active social, education, cruising and racing calendars without the extraneous costs other clubs charge for facilities little used by sailors. Happy Sailing!
