Long Island Sound Cruising/Boating Clubs?

Post by Larry Weis » Thu, 22 Apr 1999 04:00:00


Looking for a cruising or a boating club that welcomes powerboats.
Interested in local and medium range cruises and weekend raft-ups. We're
based in Oyster Bay.  Anyone know of any?  Anybody want to start one?

Hey, Larry, after all that exultation about getting into the Oyster Bay Marina,
now you're looking to get out?? Stay in dock for a year of so and savor the
flavor:)

   Larry,
    I'm on the south shore so I don't know of any up your way.  I know
down here we have a couple of "yacht clubs"  that are basically cruising
clubs.  One is located in a town marina.  There may be something like
that  in one of the town marinas up your way.

Actually, the dock is pretty lousy.  It's the flavor Oyster Bay that I
savor.

The US Power Squadrons have chapters just about everywhere. I believe
they accept powerboats ;-) They like to stress boat safety and
education, but there is a big social aspect as well. I am a member of
Detroit Power Squadron, though a sailor. Not as active as I would like
to be. Their website is:

Hey Larry,
If you don't want a "Uniform Club" such as the USPS here are  a few on the
north shore you might try:
Sagamore Y.C., Oyster Bay
Knickerbocker Y.C., Port Washington
Manhassett Y.C., Port Washington
Shelter Bay Y.C., Great Neck
Broadlawn Y.C., King Point
Port Washington Y.C., Port Washington
North Shore Y.C. , Port Washington
Good Luck and if you want to come to the South Shore I'll sponsor you into my
club.
-Bruce

Thanks.  I'm familiar with Sagamore, and I've been looking into becoming
a house member.  It seems like a nice informal place and it's adjacent
to the marina.  Seems to be a heavy emphasis on *** though (at least
based on the dockmaster's description of the place.  When I asked him
what goes on there, all he talked about was the bar).  We're not so big
in the drinking department.  More interested in cruising and raftup
companions.  I've been boating for more years than I can remember, but
I'm a newbie in the yacht club scene.  Do most place such a high
emphasis on drinking?

That appears to be the case with most boating, unfortunately. Too many boaters
cannot have a "good time" without copious consumtion of ***, mostly beer.
On reflection, its not only boating but most social activities. For those who
aren't into it, you can always find like minded people in any group with whom
you can boat. As for the others, as long as they don't BWI, let them enjoy.

The Power Squadrons, here on Long Island, have a good time with moderation, when
it comes to drinking.....

So do many Yacht clubs.  Just have to fine the right one.
