50th Year Anniversary Revival of NHYC

A special Sailabration will be held on Saturday, September 2, 2017 from 4 pm - 7pm to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the revival ofNHYC.  While the Club was chartered by the Connecticut General Assembly in 1882, the Club membership dwindled during World War 2 and ceased operations.  In 1967, a group of about inspiring 15 sailors revived the Club in the building where the Harbor Point Marina is currently located.  The Club assumed the current location in 1971.  Come and celebrate 50 years of the New Haven Yacht Club!
