Pennsylvania Sailing Clubs
Devoted to the sailing and social interests of its members, Blue Marsh Sailing Association (BMSA) is about 170 members strong. Founded in 1980 in Reading, Pennsylvania with our home base at Blue Marsh Lake, we are celebrating over 20 years of friendships and fun!
Our racing program is designed to be a fun competition and reason to get your boat out on our local namesake lake, Blue Marsh. With the variety of boats (15′ to 19′ monohulls) we have adopted the Portsmouth rating system to handicap the boats in order to give everybody a chance to excel.
Presque Isle Bay is the home and safe harbor of the Erie Yacht Club. It is a commonly held opinion that the EYC is one of the finest and friendliest privately owned clubs on the Great Lakes. The EYC has a tradition of hosting events such as the Lake Erie Interclub Race, EYC Charity Regatta, I-LYA Jr. Traveler Series, and the Trans Erie Race. We are most proud of the Reyburn Sailing School, now in its sixth decade of teaching juniors and adults sailing and water safety.
The Erie Yacht Club offers a full service boating facility. Fuel, boat storage, haul out, fleet racing, junior and adult sailing lessons, fine dining and catering are available under the care of a friendly and professional staff. For more details on our services, please browse this web site. We welcome our fellow boating enthusiasts to enjoy Erie and the Erie Yacht Club with us.
Liberty Sailing Club is a not for profit organization owned and operated by its members. Because there is no paid staff, the club relies entirely on the volunteer efforts of its membership to manage all club operations, including maintenance on our J/27 fleet. Liberty Sailing Club is open to all sailors from beginners to experts. Located on the Delaware River in Center City, Philadelphia, the club has a fleet of J/27s sloop rigged sailboats designed for performance sailing.
Members can sail as much as they like. Some choose to race, some to cruise, and some to race and cruise. What you do and how often is up to you!
The Oakmont Yacht Club holds its place as the oldest inland Yacht Club in the United States. It still has the same vitality today as it was when it was founded on July 4, 1903, by C.V. Tiers and a group of his friends who were devoted to boating and other activities. At the end of the first year, its membership totaled forty boating enthusiasts.
Nestled on the banks of the Delaware River at Buoy 29, lies the Pennsylvania Yacht Club (PYC), a privately owned non-profit boat club. The Club is an ideal setting with expansive waterfront access and beautiful views of the river as well as the Philadelphia skyline.
