About the Club

The Sea Cliff Yacht Club is a private, Members only Club created for the common interests of its Members and to promote the sport of sailing, yachting and other aquatic sports. The Sea Cliff Yacht Club is operated as a corporation under a charter granted by New York State. Its affairs are conducted by a group of Members elected to office annually under terms of the Club's constitution. The Club has shown continued growth in facilities and services through the years. The value of its properties have increased greatly though conservation and farsighted management. The Club burgee is a triangular blue flag bearing a red five-pointed star which is centered in a white rhombus.


The Club is ideally located in a residential neighborhood on the waterfront in Sea Cliff, New York; situated on a wide sandy beach at the southeast corner of Hempstead Harbor.

The Club maintains a pier and a float extending into deep water, complete with fresh water, electrical and pump-out service. Ample launch service is provided for the Club's anchorage, a carefully supervised mooring field, directly off the beach, which accommodates the greatest number of yachts in the Club's fleet. For those who wish to race in the Sound, the Club is only three miles from the Y.R.A. one design mid-sound starting line, as well as its proximaty to many of the area's long distance races.

The large and comfortable clubhouse contains inviting public spaces, a full-service restaurant, two bars, snack bar, junior room, locker room, men's and women's dressing rooms with showers, offices, workshop and lavatories. A swimming pool and kiddie pool lie adjacent to the clubhouse, accessible from the large wrap-around deck. A charming brick-paved patio, grill area, and open sun deck supplement the pool and beach for outdoor events. Also provided are boat racks, storage spaces and hoists for the launching and hauling of dry-sailing craft.

In addition to using the Club's facilities, Members are entitled to enjoy the facilities of over 40 other area yacht clubs with which Sea Cliff Yacht Club shares reciprocal privileges.
