Bass River Yacht Club offers a range of sailing opportunities for racing, instruction and use of club owned boats.

Mission Statement of the Bass River Yacht Club
The mission of the Bass River Yacht Club is to encourage and support the sport of sailing and all aspects of yachting in an environment of fellowship and goodwill.

The BRYC Adult Sailing Program supports the mission statement by enabling members to share the love of sailing and seamanship basics with other members. All members of the Bass River Yacht Club can take advantage of the program. There is no additional sign up or fee involved. Tutoring is free to members and is provided by members to members.

The objectives of the Adult Sailing Program are:

  • To give non-sailors a way to start and learn sailing
  • To encourage sailors to share their skills and provide some tutoring and instruction
  • To promote social group sailing

Our fleet of member and club owned boats consists of:

  • Wianno Seniors
  • Beetle Cats
  • Catalina Capri 14.2
  • Lasers
  • 420’s
  • Optimists
  • O’Day 25
