Essex Yacht Club, on the Connecticut River, was founded in 1933 on the principles of friendship and a deep love of yachting. Then as now, our hope is to foster a community of enthusiastic individuals and families brought together through their enjoyment of the boating experience.

The mission of the Essex Yacht Club is to promote excellence in yachting activities among its members, including racing, cruising and off-water Club activities. To accomplish this mission, the Club has developed year-round member activities and programs to promote the Corinthian spirit, the fine traditions of yachting excellence, and the camaraderie of friendship.
