Our club was founded in 1893 and is located on the Sodus Point peninsula facing southwest into Sodus Bay. Our membership is a diverse brush stroke of people from all walks of life. What we all have in common is our love of the outdoors, enjoying the water, and being part of a community. Throughout the years our members have built, maintained, and expanded our facilities. Our clubhouse has bath facilities, and a restaurant and bar. Our docks are set up for some 60 boats. Our club hosts events throughout the season with plenty of parking, dry sail, and motor boat storage for fun on the water. Rain or shine, every day spent at the club is a vacation during the summer season. When it's not summer, we still manage to stay in touch and host a few off-season events.

Here's What You Missed in 2022

Sail For Hospice Regatta 2022

This summer, our Sail for Hospice Regatta also counted as the first day of racing for the annual SBYC Challenge Cup two day club regatta. It was a hot light breezy day and everyone had a great time on Lake Ontario! Two of the 8 metres were on the line and they were distractingly beautiful to watch.

A huge congratulations to Bob Carey and his committee for organizing a very successful LYRA Regatta. 52 boats registered with approximately 260 or more racers. Add race committee, support people, volunteers, non-racing members enjoying the club and the activities, we saw about 350-400 people at the Club!

Antique Boat Show 2022

A wonderful event open to the public included more than 20 antique boats both in the water and on the hard. Thanks to Dave Williamson and all the volunteers who made this event a great success, not only for SBYC but also for the community. Despite the quick downpour mid-event, the sun came out and spectators could view the boats along with a card indicating information about the boat year, model and owner.
