CLUB HISTORY

The Nantucket Yacht Club began as an informal association of neighbors in 1890, and the inaugural commissioning occurred in 1906 at its current location. From this idyllic location "away offshore", commuting to mainland venues for competition in its formative years was prohibitive, so the NYC developed an active homegrown racing program. In the early decades of the 20th century, several NYC members helped establish and run the New York Yacht Club's Station #11, adjacent to the NYC Clubhouse. Since those years, the NYC has hosted the NYYC Annual Cruise on many occasions. During the past century, the club has staged numerous major regattas, including the International One Design world and North American championships, the Flying Dutchman North American championship, and an annual 12-Metre regatta. In 2005, the NYC created the annual Nantucket Race Week, and nearly a thousand sailors gathered to compete in boats ranging in size from Optimists to large yachts.
