ECYC holds a number of events each year. See our list of events for more information!

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.

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!
