Founded in 1888, Riverside Yacht Club, the second oldest Yacht Club in Connecticut, has a distinguished sailing history. RYC is a year-round neighborhood club with a membership composed of primarily Riverside, Old Greenwich and Cos Cob residents. The club has a strong culture of volunteerism and encourages sailing and boating by providing opportunities for all ages to learn and participate in racing, and cruising on Long Island Sound and points beyond.
Located in the well-protected Cos Cob Harbor, RYC’s marina has over a linear mile of slip space on concrete docks and additional deep-water moorings. The club hosts major regattas throughout the summer season and has the largest frostbiting fleet in the country. Our active PHRF fleet enjoys a unique Thursday night ‘Vespers’ with terrific racing and casual dining following.
There is something for everyone at Riverside Yacht Club. The Club offers fine dining, ladies programs, tennis, a youth summer program that includes sailing, swimming, tennis and more.
If you love the water, RYC is the perfect family-friendly place to relax, have fun, compete, and build friendships.
