Sodus Bay, the largest bay on Lake Ontario, is located on the south shore between Rochester and Oswego with easy access from Syracuse to Rochester and throughout the Finger Lakes region. The bay itself is a beautiful inland protected harbor unique in its size and scenic splendor.  Our yacht club provides easy access to this gorgeous natural waterway and to Lake Ontario. You can get anywhere in the world from Sodus Bay Yacht Club or just spend the day enjoying the bay. Any weekend during our season members may be seen boating or tossing the anchor out while other members anchor close by or tied in an afternoon flotilla for an impromptu lunch and swimming. How about an excursion to Fair Haven or Rochester or Oswego for the weekend? It can all be done from here.
