Yachting

Shelter Island Yacht Club is now open for its 131st Season.  SIYC has a rich history of yacht racing and cruising traditions.  A majority of our members participate in a wide variety of sailing activities throughout the year.  The Etchells Fleet 15 has 18 registered boats which race in a summer series from June to September.  We have the largest Herreshoff 12.5 fleet in the World with 66+ boats that compete from June to October.  Our PHRF Fleet is highly competitive and includes, NYYC 42’s, J100’s, J111’s, J105’s, King 40, and Stuart Knockabout’s to name a few.  They compete in our Club hosted PHRF races as well as other eastern seaboard regattas.  In addition to our racing fleets, we also have a large and growing cruising Fleet that does seasonal trips to Maine, the Vineyard, Nantucket, and other east coast destinations.  The Shelter Island Yacht Club is also welcoming to any reciprocal yacht clubs who are looking for a port to stay or to grab a great meal in our restaurant.  Welcome to SIYC!
