From its austere beginning at the South end of Seneca Lake in 1929, the Watkins Glen Yacht Club has emerged as one of the premier clubs in New York State’s Finger Lakes Region. Incorporated in 1937, the Watkins Glen Yacht Club (WGYC) is located on beautifully landscaped grounds with over 50 boat slips. More than just a yacht club, it is a haven for members, their families and guests. There is a sense of peace and tranquility that makes the club an incomparable place of refuge combined with social and water activities.
The famed village of Watkins Glen, with its proud history of motor sports and the exciting gorge, offers a most relaxing atmosphere. If you’re inclined to pick up the pace, ask our members about the wineries and restaurants along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and the numerous golf courses within a 15 mile drive.
Let us show you why The Watkins Glen Yacht Club is known as the “Friendliest Club in the Finger Lakes.”
