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 Fellow Members,
I hope you and all your family members are staying safe during this time.  Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Yacht Squadron will remain closed until further notice.  We are working on rescheduling most of the events that were planned, so we will keep you posted on that.

We will also continue to provide our members with the fabulous Friday Night Dinners that are now "to go" meals, which have been an outstanding success.  Many thanks go out to our amazing Chef Bill, our Manager Dot, and the staff members who continue to make this possible.  If you have not yet tried these meals, I highly encourage you to do so!  These meals are a great way of connecting the club to our members during these difficult times.  If you know of any members who might need assistance at this time, please let us know.

It is ironic that during this time of isolation, we have experienced more togetherness and connections with our families and for that, we are so grateful.

I look forward to getting back together soon at the Yacht Squadron but in the meantime, be well and stay safe!

Commodore John Sheehan
