Thank you for your interest in the Baldwin Yacht Club!

Established in 1948 in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, the Baldwin Yacht Club provides a safe, fun cruising and casual racing experience for active boaters. We have a variety of member moorings and a full event calendar that includes dozens of ports in the eastern Long Island Sound region, and extending eastward to Nantucket and Cape Cod. We do not maintain a clubhouse facility.

We have over 100 members from New England and as far as the Carolina’s and Florida and each plays an important role event planning and coordination, administration, and management of the club. To ensure everyone gets acquainted quickly, all new members are expected to serve two years on the Social Committee and chair an event during that time.

How do you join this exciting and adventuresome club?

It is simple, attend 3 on-water events, by boat, over a 24-month period, and secure one primary and two secondary sponsors (existing members) to propose you for membership. Do not know anyone at Baldwin, not a problem, we will assign you a mentor who will introduce you to other members with similar interests (e.g. boat type, marina, children, hometown, boating interests etc.).

Interested?  Either e-mail the membership committee chair at
to get a membership packet, download a membership application and mail it in or simply apply online
and let the cruising begin  .

Baldwin Yacht Club is a 501(c)7 non-profit organization.
