About Our Club
Our club is an active, informal, and family oriented Yacht Club located on Wollaston Beach in Quincy, MA. We have been in operation since 1890 and we have a long history of racing, sailing and powerboating. After over 120 years we are proud to say that the ideas that originally were were written into our constitution still hold true today.
From our original 1890 constitution:
"Since it is our desire to perpetuate an organization to foster and promote yachting in Quincy Bay and surrounding waters, to provide a common meeting place for yachtsmen and their friends, where good fellowship may prevail and harmony reign supreme and to encourage the youth of our organization to emulate the above principles, this organization is therefore founded, with the trust that it will be a benefit to the community."
Our members enjoy the relaxed atmosphere at the club and appreciate the social interaction as much as the boating. Many members are involved in the day-to-day functioning of the club and it would be safe to say that we are very much a self-help organization, relying on members to do many of the day-to day operations of the club. This is particular true for our active event calendar including Friday Night Dinners for our members and guests,
Although we have an active racing schedule, the club welcomes boaters of skill levels including beginners.
Our clubhouse overlooks beautiful Quincy Bay and the Boston skyline. The deck is a popular gathering place for our members and guests, watching one-design races or just chatting and enjoying a beautiful sunsets behind the Boston Skyline.
Our clubhouse is not just the center of all boating activity but serves as base for all our endeavors. There is a nice lounge with a bar where many of our members can be found debating the daily races or the virtues of different bottom paints. A large screen TV is a popular feature and not just on game day. A separate Junior room is available for our Junior members to prepare for sailing or just hang out together.
Upstairs is wonderful function room for 125 people with an amazing deck that overlooks Quincy Bay, the islands and the city skyline. This facility is used for club events is available for rent for weddings and other function.
