ECYC Clubhouse Closed - Take Out Dinners Available


Gov. Ned Lamont announced his order to close Connecticut restaurants and bars in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, the Governor banned gatherings of 50 or more people.

Accordingly, I regret to inform you that all sit-down meal service has been suspended and the interior of The ECYC Clubhouse will be closed until further notice. One exception to this rule allows the use of the lower level by those club members participating in Frostbiting. The second exception allows for take-out meal service for members and guests.

Starting this Wednesday, March 18th, the Galley will be offering, prepared dinner meals, on Wednesdays and Fridays, for curbside pick up and final preparation at your home. Gourmet Galley will send out a notice with a menu and ordering details later today.

In recognition of these changes, the monthly minimum charge will be waived until regular meal service resumes.

As I have stated before, I recognize that we are going through a difficult time of uncertainty. It is my hope that by pulling together and following the directives of our health professionals, we can navigate through these troubled waters and return to regular operations soon.

I wish you all the best and of course, I am available if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns. Working together we will get through this.

Our Clubhouse is near the foot of Main Street, within a few minutes walk of a museum, shopping, marine services and provisioning in the Village of Essex.

We extend a warm welcome to you from the Essex Corinthian Yacht Club!

Find out more about the Essex Corinthian Yacht Club!

Our mission is to provide an environment of fellowship for our active yachting membership and their guests. Our membership enjoys a traditional, yet updated yacht club facility, offering spectacular views of Essex Harbor from the dining room and elevated deck. We take great pride in our racing and cruising heritage, as well as our on-shore activities and social events calendar. Our club is open to members and their guests eleven months of the year.

Located on the waterfront in Essex, Connecticut, we welcome the visiting yachting community. The Club maintains moorings in Essex Harbor and Hamburg Cove. The anchorage is well protected and just six miles upriver from the Old Saybrook Light on Long Island Sound, and a 10-minute cruise to beautiful Hamburg Cove.

Welcome to the Essex Corinthian Yacht Club,

a boating & social club!
