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.

Dear Members,
I hope you and your families are all healthy, happy and staying cool during the warm weather of the summer!  
It has been wonderful to see the smiling faces of the children as they are enjoying swimming lessons at the pool, playing tennis and learning how to sail.  These are truly life long skills that they will always have.
I appreciate that everyone continues to comply with our Covid-19 rules, such as wearing masks when being socially distant is not possible, and  having members only at the club at this time.  Remember that we continue to follow all guidelines to keep our members safe. 
We have had many members and their children join us in our Tuesday Night Family Activities, and our Wednesday Night BBQ and Sailing Evening has brought many of you down to enjoy the club and the bar is open, so if you have not had a chance to come down, please stop by!
Friday Night Dinners will continue with take out, indoor and outdoor dining.  Make your reservation for a wonderful dining experienceYou can also visit our snack bar where I have heard that the Fish Taco, Chicken Panini and the Beet Salad are delicious.And of course when not being used for lessons, the tennis court is open for play and 
the pool is available for free swim to take a dip!

As you may know, the club is celebrating its 130th Anniversary and there was a great article on 27 East entitled

"Westhampton Yacht Squadron Celebrates 130th
Anniversary, Resilience in Unprecedented Times".
