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,
Happy Spring to you all and Summer is just around the corner! We have a very exciting and fun filled season ahead of us.
First, let me please congratulate and welcome the new members that were recently admitted to the club.  Thanks to Dot and her staff, we hosted a wonderful cocktail party to welcome them over the weekend.  It was great to meet them and introduce them to the rest of the Board.

Please mark your calendar for the upcoming not to miss events. 
Our Annual Flag Raising event takes place this Sunday, May 26th at 2pm.  Lets hope for clear weather and don't forget to purchase your duck for the legendary duck race!  Hope to see you all there!
Our next not to miss event is our Fundraiser.  Jean Fracapane, Kristen Smyth and the committee have been working overtime in pulling this memorable event together which is slated for Saturday, June 8th.  Please keep your eyes open for the emails that have gone out and remember to click on the link to reserve and pay.  You can also click on the link at the bottom of this letter and may also send your payment to the club or drop a check at the office if you would like.  The event would not be a success without the help of our fellow members so please donate items, experiences and most of all please join us in what promises to be a terrific event!
Registration is up and running for sailing, swimming and tennis lessons.  Be sure to sign up before classes fill up.  Our Sailing Director Jim Schultz and his committee have a busy calendar planned, so feel free to contact Jim with any questions you may have.  
I look forward to a great summer and I hope to see you "at the club".
Thank you!
Commodore John Sheehan
