Cedar Point Yacht Club (CPYC) is located on Bluff Point as part of Saugatuck Island in Westport, Connecticut, overlooking Long Island Sound at the mouth of the Saugatuck River.
The property was designed with sailboat racing in mind, and the facilities are perfectly suited for running a wide variety of one-design and handicap races and social activities afterwards.
Facilities include a clubhouse encircled by an upper deck veranda and lawns affording spectacular views of the harbor and Long Island Sound. The clubhouse includes a snack bar, separate kitchen facilities, self service bar (no restaurant), and spacious shower areas. There is a large, covered pavilion adjacent to the clubhouse, grills for outdoor meals, two sandy beaches, a fenced playground, and parking for 200 vehicles. The private basin provides well protected slips for 130 racing and cruising sailboats with fresh water service and electricity. Depth at mean low water is 8 feet.
Our dry sail facilities feature a wide launching ramp, beachfront launching, one 5-ton crane, two high speed one ton electric hoists, a large rigging dock and a floating 420 launch dock providing easy access for our junior sailors. There is space for more than 150 dry sailed boats and several large staging/rigging areas with fresh water service, enabling CPYC to easily handle large numbers of boats for major regattas. The entire facility is free of overhead wires. There are also racks for Lasers, Optimist Prams, and other small boats.
The race support fleet includes a 34' Race Committee (RC) boat, a secondary 23' RC boat, three 18' and one 20' skiff, several rigid bottom inflatables, and enough marks, flags, etc. to comfortably run up to three racing circles, simultaneously.
The Club is open 0830 to 2000 (2300 on Wednesdays and Saturdays) from Memorial Day to Labor Day. From Commissioning Day until the Friday before Memorial Day and from Labor Day until the end of October, the club is open 0800 to 1600. The club staff monitors VHF Channel 78.
Club facilities are available for private functions, at times that do not conflict with our racing activities. See www.cedarpointyc.org/facilityrentals for more information.
