About Us

Newport Yacht Club was organized in 1936 as a membership corporation under New York State law with its clearly stated purpose: “To promote the sport of small boat racing and small boat sailing.” Today, the club is located on the old Birds & Worms Hotel property, with the clubhouse still having much of the original structure intact.

We have an active sailboat racing and social program through the year and welcome new members who have an interest in small boat racing and sailing to come down to the club and check us out.  More about the history of the club and membership information with an application for membership can be found on this web site.  Most of the club maintenance and operation is performed through the volunteer efforts of the members.
