Greetings and Best Wishes to all from the North Shore Yacht Club (NSYC)! Established in 1871 as the New York Canoe Club we’ve been in commission for 154 years and are the oldest yacht club on Long Island!

The NSYC is for people of all ages who love to sail, whether 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 of all ages 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 Long Island. Membership fees are a fraction of  cost of other yacht clubs and marinas.  Our Cruising, Racing, Boat Share , Junior Sailing Camp Program , Social and Education programs are real successes!

Please click any link here, below, or in this website. Or just email, or call us, and let us share how we approach, “Something for All” with 154 years of experience and remaining, “NSYC Strong.”  Meanwhile, click here for a brief  Video introduction to NSYC.

And, of course, we monitor our Club VHF Radio on channel 78!
