Welcome to Essex Yacht Club

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.
