Life on shore at Sodus Bay Yacht Club



Our calendar is packed with social events that begin with a mid-Winter Party.  By mid-April, we are enjoying Spring Fling pub nights on Fridays and Early Bird hosted pot luck dinners on Saturday nights. 

Once boating season is officially underway with our Sail Pass Ceremony, the dining room is open and we have club dinner events like a Pig Roast and Lobsterfest.  We also have movie nights, bonfires on the beach, family beach day and a ladies’ luncheon, to name a few.  The Commodore’s Ball in June is our most elegant formal event not to be missed!

After Labor Day, we still have fun at SBYC.  We have “Friday Free for All” pub nights and Saturday Die Hard hosted pot luck dinners from mid-September until the week before Halloween.  Our finale is the Awards Dinner and Halloween Party.


Sail Pass is a festive event held on Memorial Day and officially starts the boating season. Club members sail or motor past the clubhouse and exchange salutes with the Commodore. The Commodore's punch bowl, hors d'oeuvres and a luncheon buffet follow the Sail Pass.  Attire is navy blue blazers and white trousers or skirts.


The Commodore’s Ball is a semi-formal to formal dinner/dance to honor the present and all past Commodores.

The AwardsDinner & Halloween Party is hosted by the Race Committee as a venue for presenting the year end race awards... This event is a combination costume party, dance and awards ceremony. As the final, crowning event of the social season, this occasion vies for "best party of the season" honors every year.


We have a professionally managed club with a bar and formal dining room serving meals on Friday and Saturday nights during the season. A bar menu is available on Thursdays and Sundays. Club Manager Sheila Storms can arrange reservations for dinner and help with other needs during your stay with us. Enjoy SBYC.


The OOD is responsible for assuring the day-to-day safety of the docks and clubhouse for members and visitors. Our club is a frequent stop for other yacht club members as they enjoy Lake Ontario on their trips around this expansive waterway. The OOD acts as our ambassador for these folks and makes sure they have a location to tie up and enjoy themselves.
