Stamford Yacht Club is about racing in and around Stamford CT. All races and series are open to everyone including experienced sailors and would-be sailors.
Organized in October 1890, the Stamford Yacht Club was put together by 12 well known Stamford men. In fact, the Merritt Parkway is named after the Club’s second Vice Commodore. Since the Stamford Yacht Club has been open for over a century, it is part of the Stamford Historical Society.
First and foremost, Stamford Yacht Club is about racing in and around Stamford, as it has been since its conception. All races and series, such as the Vineyard Race, Northern Ocean Racing Trophy Series, and Winter Frostbiting are open to everyone, including experienced sailors and would-be sailors. The Storm Trysail Club’s Block Island Race and the Junior Sailing Association of Long Island Sound’s Dorade Trophy Regatta are also hosted by the Club.
Tennis is also quite popular at the club. Three new courts were built in 1915 after a fire destroyed the original lawn courts installed in 1892. The tennis club has grown immensely since then, attracting Open Collegiate and Junior Tournaments. Bill Tilden and Don Budge, two renowned athletes, have even played on the courts. Today, the Club has six Har-Tru tennis courts with four lit for night play. The Club is now a member of the United States Tennis Association.
Children play an important part of the Club as they bring much of the excitement with them. There are many junior activities offered at the Club, including sailing, tennis, swimming, diving, water polo, and camps. The Stamford Yacht Club Juniors compete with other clubs throughout Fairfield County and the Junior sailors have even competed all over the world.
