Essex Yacht Club, on the Connecticut River, was founded in 1933 on the principles of friendship and a deep love of yachting. Then as now, our hope is to foster a community of enthusiastic individuals and families brought together through their enjoyment of the boating experience.
As our membership and fleet have grown over the years, our Club members have gained respect on the race course both locally and in national and international competition, including the America’s Cup, the Bermuda Race and the Olympics.
Beyond competition, our members enjoy the camaraderie of friendship and family while cruising the coastline from New York to Maine.
The pride and respect we feel for one another and the sport we love is the cornerstone of our club...and the spirit continues. We invite you to explore and experience Essex Yacht Club.
