Stonington Harbor Yacht Club (SHYC)

Stonington Harbor Yacht Club - Founded in 2002, the Clubhouse is located in historic Stonington Borough at the entrance to Stonington Harbor. We are a year-round club offering a wide variety of both water and land-based activities as well as extensive event facilities.

The mission of the Stonington Harbor Yacht Club is to foster a spirit of excellence in boating activities in our membership and the community.

This statement has never been more important than it is today. It must continue to be the foundation of everything we do in the future. Quoted from the SHYC website
