Welcome to the Sodus Bay Yacht Club. Our club was founded in 1893 and its present location is on the Sodus Point peninsula facing southwest into the bay. Our membership is a diverse brush stroke of people from all walks of life. What we all have in common is our love for the waterfront culture. Throughout the years our members have built, maintained and expanded our facilities. Our clubhouse has bath facilities, a restaurant and bar. Our docks are set up for some 60 boats. Our property hosts events throughout the season with plenty of parking, dry sail and motor boat storage for fun on the water. Every weekend can be a vacation at the SBYC during the summer season.
When you become a member of the Sodus Bay Yacht Club you are opening the door to many fun experiences and friendships that will last a lifetime as well as to many benefits and programs designed to add value to your membership and lifestyle.
The protected harbor of Great Sodus Bay creates a perfect location for family fun on the water. Settled in 1794 and lying halfway between Rochester and Oswego, this little known harbor is often referred to as the Crown Jewel of Lake Ontario. When the wind is from the north the water of the bay is calm and when the wind is from the south the water of the lake is calm, giving boaters a place to have fun on most all occasions. From the state park and beach on Lake Ontario to fishing, sailing, motor boating, canoeing, kayaking, swimming or just exploring or relaxing this is the destination that your family could be enjoying every weekend of the summer.
Sodus Bay Junior Sailing Association, Inc. SBJSA was founded in 1956 by several forward thinking yacht club members as a means to teach children and young adults the basics of swimming, sailing and seamanship. The Association was formed as a 501(c)3 educational organization in order to qualify as a school and a tax exempt method of fundraising and giving. Commitment and dedication to this program are evident in the numerous youth sailors who go on to become sailing and swimming instructors as well as those who continue their sailing career into college and beyond.
