Your Waterfront Home

Manhasset Bay Yacht Club is a premier destination for families seeking an exclusive waterfront experience. Our Club enjoys a prime waterfront location and features a classic federal style clubhouse that exudes elegance and sophistication. With over 130 years of experience as a leader in the yachting world, Manhasset Bay Yacht Club offers a unique and exceptional experience for families to relax, meet friends, and indulge in a range of activities, including sailing, swimming, tennis, and fine dining in The Grill Room, Bay Room, Lower and Upper Terraces.

We offer an extensive array of activities for all members of the family, including children's activities such as The Spinnaker Program, Junior Sailing, Swim Team, and Tennis. The Spinnaker Program is designed for children aged 5 to 9, featuring sailing, swimming, tennis, arts, and crafts. The Junior Sailing Program (8 weeks) combines sailing, tennis, and swim team participation for children aged 9 to 18, competing against neighboring clubs.

For adult members interested in learning to sail, our Ideal 18 program is available at a modest fee, with instruction provided. The program has a fleet of 18' sail boats, which can be sailed single-handedly or with a crew of four. Adult sailing includes the Manhasset Bay One Design Fleet, the Sonar Fleet, as well as the Ideal 18s. Competitive racing occurs each weekend, and regattas and special events are scheduled throughout the late spring and summer and into the fall. Winter sailing, called frostbiting, is a long-standing tradition, and Manhasset Bay is the home of the Frostbite YC.

Other activities include the heated pool (open until late September), tennis (5 har-tru courts), paddle tennis, and trapshooting. We also offer children's parties such as the Halloween Party, Brunch with Santa, and the Easter Egg Hunt. Adult members can participate in special evening events like Raft Up at the dock, followed by a barbeque with music and dancing poolside.

Our Women's Committee hosts luncheons, dinners, and holiday boutiques, and members can also use the Club for special occasions like weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries. Members use the Club as their "Home Away from Home" - an extension of their living room, providing a welcoming and exclusive environment for families to relax, unwind, and create unforgettable memories. Come and experience the best that Manhasset Bay Yacht Club has to offer and discover why we are the premier destination for waterfront living.
