Club Cruises

The Cruising boats of American Yacht Club represent one of the strongest fleets at our club.  The exact specifications of cruising boats vary by owner, but cruising boats tend to be more comfortable and stable under sail than racers.  We have a large amount of cruising sailboats and a number of cruising powerboats at the Club as well.
We organize multiple cruises throughout the year for both powerboats and sailboats.  There are local, regional, and international cruises that allow our members to sail their own boats, team up with friends, or charter boats in order to spend time with family, friends, and shipmates.

The Annual Summer Cruise will be calling on ports in Eastern Long Island Sound and North Fork of Long Island
from Saturday, August 17th - Saturday, August 24th. 

Please reach out to Fleet Captain Matt Fahey with any questions at

We will be holding our Opening Party in Mystic on Saturday, August 17th. Please be advised that Mystic Seaport has recently requested that individual boats make reservations directly with them.
Previously, we had informed you that this would be handled collectively, but Mystic Seaport would rather receive individual requests instead of trying to coordinate through a central contact point. While they are holding spots for us for the next few weeks, it is imperative you make the reservation as soon as possible.
Sign in to, type in 'Mystic Seaport', then indicate the date (8/17), boat particulars and shore power required. Additionally, our Summer Cruise questionnaire is now ready to be filled out and can be found here: Summer Cruise Questionnaire
(To begin questionnaire, please select 'creat reservation' on event signup)
