About Sandy Bay Yacht Club

Founded in 1885, Sandy Bay Yacht Club is located in the scenic and historic coastal town of Rockport, Massachusetts

As an active sailing club, SBYC has numerous one-design and cruising sailboats racing in regular Wednesday evening and weekend races, as well as annual Club regattas and frequent club sponsored District and National Regattas. An active social program complements these events.

Our sailing program provides basic through advanced training for both juniors and adults. Its purpose is to give our students a broad exposure to the sport of sailing, develop safe, independent sailors, offer exposure to racing, and to instill a love of the sport of sailing.
