From racing to cruising, Newport Yacht Club is home to a wide variety of sailboats. Not only do we have Irondequoit Bay to sail but Lake Ontario is a short distance away. The bay offers a unique opportunity as the afternoon thermals provide great wind into the evening.
- The brown jug is being hosted at Rochester Canoe Club this year.
Thursday evenings at 6 PM and Sunday afternoon at 1 PM finds our Snipe and Laser fleets racing. Cruising and Catalina 22 fleets take to Irondequoit Bay for racing Thursday evenings at 6 PM and out on the lake Saturday mornings at 11 AM. If you are interested in participating, contact our Race Chair, Jeff Heidman, at Racing@NewportYachtClubRoc.com
