Beverly Yacht Club


Marion, Mass.

Founded 1872



The Beverly Yacht Club was chartered in 1872 as an organization dedicated to supporting the development of yacht racing, beginning with our founding Commodore, America's Cup yacht designer Edward Burgess. The clubhouse and facilities are located in Marion, Mass. on the western shore of Buzzards Bay which is bounded by the Elizabeth Islands to the east and the southeastern coast of Massachusetts on the west. The original clubhouse was located at the end of Butlers Point in Marion on Buzzards Bay. In 1955, the Club moved to its current location at 99 Water Street. The BYC racing program runs more than 260 races for its club members during its regular season from May through September. Boats compete in one-design and handicapped class. One design classes include H-12s, Bullseyes, Shields, J22s, J24s and J80s. PHRF racing in both cruising and racing fleets occurs every Wednesday night, and for many special races on weekends throughout the summer. The Beverly Yacht Club is the host of the 2014 J/24 Nationals, 2013 U.S. Junior Women's Singlehanded Championships, and 2010 J/80 North Americans.


Skipper, Brain Keane will led the Beverly Yacht Club team in the USQS. Thus far this year Brian Keane has taken first place in the J/70 New England Championship and second place in the Key West Race Week. Last year Keane took first place at US Sailing's Championship of Champions, Annapolis NOOD (J/80), and Bacardi Race Week (J/70). We solicited our membership for interested candidates, and formatted a "race-off" event to be help in June. After discussing the USQS format and race-off event with all interested parties, everyone agreed that Brian Keane was our best candidate to lead the team, and all have rallied to his support.
