The Indian Harbor Yacht Club is rich in sailing tradition. The Club, with its breath taking views of Long Island Sound and its convenient location to Newport and New York, is widely recognized as a premier yachting facility on the East Coast. It operates a mooring facility in the harbor, an active adult and junior sailing program, and a full service restaurant and bar.
The current club facility was built in 1920 having been rebuilt following a devastating fire to the original facility in 1919. The Indian Harbor Yacht Club was founded in 1889 and incorporated in Connecticut In 1901.
Today the club serves its very active and diverse membership needs by providing club programs, and events and facilities that have earned it the respect of being one of the leading sailing Clubs in the area. The phenomenal views from the clubhouse are enhanced further by a strong tradition of sailing.
The clubhouse and offices are open Tuesday through Sunday although the mooring and launch operations are accessible anytime during the commissioned season. Members can enjoy the many dining services offered in addition to the many formal and informal social events.
