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,

 I want to express my heartfelt thanks to you all for your support and kindness shown during the past two years. It  meant a lot to my family and I!  This will be my final letter to you all as Commodore.

It was certainly an eventful but productive two years! Dealing with the pandemic was indeed the most arduous task I encountered. Many thanks  to the Flag Officers , Board of Directors, Club Manager  Dot,  Chef Bill  and all the staff and of course, my family and good friends, for the unwavering support and encouragement during the whole process.

We did a fine job of pivoting when necessary which enabled us to navigate our way through the pandemic successfully, I expect better times  ahead of us now and hopefully this period will be but a distant memory for us all. I know we will continue to prevail in the face of adversity. I hope we can look back and say when things were at their worst, Westhampton Yacht Squadron was at their best!

It was my honor, privilege, and pleasure  to serve as your Commodore. My experience  has reinforced what a gem of a club we have and how fortunate we all are. Let’s hope we continue to make everlasting memories.

I wish Aram all the best for the future

My best wishes to you all, and again , Thanks!

I’ll  see you at the club!
