We welcome the guests of club members and members of yacht clubs with reciprocal privileges whenever space is available in our marina or among our harbor's moorings.
This guide provides a summary description of our Club, the facilities and services available to guests, as well as rules and guidelines we ask our guests to observe during their visit.
Founded in 1888, Riverside Yacht Club is the second oldest in Connecticut. Possessing a rich sailing heritage, our Club today offers year-round activities, including cruising, racing, one-design and frostbite sailing. Among recent notable regattas hosted by the Club were the World Etchells in 2003, and the U.S. Disabled Sailing Championship in 2009. Additionally, the Club offers swimming, tennis and dining facilities.
Located inside protected Cos Cob Harbor, our marina is one of the finest among private yacht clubs on Long Island Sound. With over a mile of linear slip space, our concrete docks provide 166 berths. Adjacent to the marina is a federal anchorage with 115 member-owned moorings.
