We are very excited to announce this year’s Annual Cruise itinerary. The American Yacht Club Summer Cruise is one of AYC’s most quintessential events!

The Cruise committee, along with Commodore Jessop and I, have put together an itinerary that accommodates all sailors; whether you have years of cruising experience, or you are ready to see for yourself what this tradition is all about! There’s racing, there’s cruising, there’s paddleboarding, there’s fishing and gutterboat racing. There’s eating and drinking, there are sunrises and sunsets, and lots of memories to be made!

Annual Cruise

All are encouraged to participate, and we are here to answer any questions you may have regarding logistics, boat charters, and what to bring.

We plan to bring back the traditional “Feeder Race”.

Participants will compete in a distance race from American Yacht Club to our first destination at Mystic Seaport on a course designated by the cruise race committee.
