Welcome to the Westhampton Yacht Squadron

The story of the Westhampton Yacht Squadron, since it’s founding in 1890, is of people dedicated to sailing and of families passing their enthusiasm as well as their boats from generation to generation.

It is the story of youngsters who learn the sport of sailing, swimming and tennis. Many go on to win honors in local and national competition. It is a wonderful and unique spirit, one of camaraderie and giving.

We also offer a welcome and safe haven to yachtsmen and yachtswomen who visit our bay. We are located on the beautiful Moriches Bay in Remsenburg, NY. Our members and guests enjoy the scenic view of the bay from our well stocked bar and dining facilities. It is rich in history which we proudly pass on to the new generation of sailors.

Commodore's Corner

Dear Fellow Members,
Happy Spring to you all and Summer is just around the corner! We have a very exciting and fun filled season ahead of us.
First, let me please congratulate and welcome the new members that were recently admitted to the club.  Thanks to Dot and her staff, we hosted a wonderful cocktail party to welcome them last weekend.  It was great to meet them and introduce them to the rest of the Board.

Thank you to everyone that attended, donated and volunteered at our Annual Fundraiser.  It was a wonderful night and a great success!
And a special thank you goes out to our Fundraiser committee, especially
 Jean Fracapane and Kristen Smyth, who worked overtime in pulling this memorable event together!  The event would not have been a success without the help of all of you and our fellow members!
We have quite a few terrific events coming up in the weeks ahead. I look forward to a great summer and I hope to see you "at the club".
Thank you!
Commodore John Sheehan
