Founded in 1959 by a group of ardent sailors, the club dedicates itself to safe cruising, racing, boating education, and good fellowship among sailors. We are a family organization with members from Maine to the Chesapeake. The club, which is run entirely by members, is an affordable way to belong to a recognized yachting organization. Our wide range of activities appeal to new boat owners as well as to more experienced sailors and serious offshore racers.
The club has no clubhouse, docks, tennis courts, swimming pools or restaurants, but offers its membership a wide array of cruising, racing, informational and social events year round. Currently, our membership includes more than 200 boats from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, New York, Connecticut, and the Chesapeake Bay. If you enjoy sailing, want to learn more about it, desire to expand your cruising and/or racing horizons, would gain confidence by sailing in the company of others, and would like to meet friendly people who share your interest in sailing, perhaps you should consider the Blue Water Sailing Club.
The BYC has a tradition of creating and supporting some of the finest sailing events found anywhere on the East Coast of North America. From the prestigious Marblehead-to-Halifax Ocean Race (co-hosted with our good friends at the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron) to our very popular and long-running Wednesday Evening Races to our recent forays into invitational team (Jackson Cup) and match (Marblehead Cup) racing.
The BYC is also the organization from which The U. S. Power Squadron was founded. The club has a long history with power boating for recreation and safety. We also provide a welcome mat on “the town side” of Marblehead Harbor for visiting yachtsmen cruising into Marblehead from points near and far.
Eastern Yacht Club is a historic club overlooking Marblehead’s breathtaking harbor, organized to promote yachting and serve the varied interests of its membership.
