Founded in 1871, North Shore Yacht Club is The Club for Sailors on Manhasset Bay. Rich in tradition, NSYC members join because they love to sail and they love to be with other sailors.

Since 1959, the club has been located on the north shore of Manhasset Bay in Port Washington. It is completely protected on three sides, providing one of the safest, best sheltered anchorages in the Bay. Yet, it is closer to the sound than any other anchorage or club in the area.

NSYC prides itself on a membership that keeps current with the times while remembering the rich heritage of the Long Island sailor. Active cruising, racing and education committees provide opportunities to participate in a variety of Club activities. Junior Sailing and Boat Sharing Programs round out the Club’s attractiveness for all ages.

The large, paneled clubroom overlooks Manhasset Bay. A windowed wall opens to a deck where members can survey the fleet as they relax on comfortable chairs and lounges. The clubroom is a center for meetings, socializing and educational programs both on and off season. A complete kitchen and fireplace add convenience and charm to off-season events where sailors compare memories of summers past and hopes for summers to come.

NSYC ‘S fleet of mostly sailboats ranges from small one-designs to ocean-going auxiliaries. A diverse membership includes new sailors and experienced blue water racers and cruisers. The one thing they all have in common is a basic love for sailing.

North Shore Yacht Club’s red burgee with its single, bold white stripe is well known and welcome at other yacht clubs, far and near. There ‘s a good reason why the burgee is so simple; when it was designed, there were no other yacht clubs around. That’s why NSYC is still known as The Club for Sailors on Manhasset Bay.
