On behalf of the Flag Officers and the membership, I am pleased to welcome you to the web site of the Boston Yacht Club. Throughout its long history our club has endeavored to serve its members and to promote yachting. This web site is a communications tool to help achieve these aims.

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. The club organizes an annual cruise either North East to Maine or to South to the Islands. Crews on both power and sailing vessels enjoy participating in that.
We also provide a welcome mat on "the town side" of Marblehead Harbor for visiting yachtsmen cruising into Marblehead from points near and far.

Please contact our Club Manager if you would like further information regarding our Club's facilities, membership opportunities, or other subjects related to our many social and sailing programs.
