About

The tradition of yacht racing and cruising has been in the hearts and souls of Youngstown Yacht Club sailors since its inception. The Club’s first yacht was the Blue Moon, a New York 30 sloop which dropped anchor off the Club dock on July 2, 1931. The nine-man syndicate from Buffalo that brought her to Youngstown joined a small group of promising local sailing enthusiasts and formed the Youngstown Yacht Club.


In 1936 the fledgling Club agreed to hold the L.Y.R.A. regatta in Youngstown. Enthusiastic racers from Lake Erie sailed into the mighty Niagara River to attend the event. Struck by the prevalent natural beauty and exceptional sailing conditions, these sailors decided to stay, bringing to the Club a cadre of experienced sailors who were to provide much of the Club’s leadership for the next 40 years. Overnight, Youngstown became a power in Lake Ontario racing, and a sailing center for the Buffalo area. The Club has been increasing membership, improving facilities, and promoting racing and cruising ever since.
