Welcome to the Edgartown Yacht Club website.
Edgartown is located on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, which is off the southeast coast of Cape Cod in the state of Massachusetts. Established in 1905, the Club has been located at the present facility since 1927. The island waters are clear and the prevailing winds blow from the southwest, providing some of the best sailing conditions in the Northeast. These wonderful properties have given the Cape and Islands their rich history of whaling, fishing and yachting.
The mission of the Edgartown Yacht Club is to bring together those who have an abiding interest in yachting, sailboat racing, seamanship, and competition in the highest Corinthian spirit.
The Club seeks also to encourage the traditions of excellence and good sportsmanship in tennis, as well as to promote the enjoyment of dining and social activities.
With these ideals in mind, members are encouraged to give freely of their time and talents in order to enhance the quality of life at the Club.
These pages are windows through which you can glimpse the heart and soul of our Club. We hope that you enjoy your visit here on the website. We hope, too, that you will be inspired to make your way to our corner of Martha’s Vineyard, by land or by sea!
