Membership

Welcome to the Newport Yacht Club, an informal family-oriented sailing club devoted to small boat sailing and racing. While our facilities are primarily oriented toward sailing, they are also available for the private and business use of members. Our fully-equipped clubhouse and kitchen is available throughout the year, although the club does not have a restaurant that serves meals. Our porch and picnic area have a spectacular view of Irondequoit Bay. Opportunities to learn more about sailing include: seminars, sailing and crewing with more experienced sailors.

Newport Yacht Club is successful because our members participate in all aspects of the club's management. At the annual Spring and Fall Work Days, members join together to complete the maintenance of the facilities in order to keep them in good condition. Members may be asked to participate in special projects or to serve as committee members or officers of the club. Members are also expected to participate in four general membership meetings a year (in person or by proxy).
