Keuka Yacht Club (KYC) is located on the west side of Keuka Lake between Hammondsport and Branchport, in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. The club encourages and supports yachting, both sail and power craft, on Keuka Lake and provides a clubhouse and sailing facilities for use by its members. Founded in 1872, Keuka Yacht Club is one of the oldest inland yacht clubs in the United States.
Every weekend during the summer, and into September, you will find KYC members out racing with their fleets. Each fleet has robust competition as scores are tallied for the honor of earning the fleet champion title and trophy. In addition to club racing, each fleet organizes regattas at the club, bringing boats from other yacht clubs to KYC.
Membership at Keuka Yacht Club is one of the most affordable ways to gain access to Keuka Lake. If you are interested in racing sailboats, crewing in races, renting a slip for your boat, or relaxing and enjoying beautiful Keuka Lake with your family and new and old friends, the Keuka Yacht Club is a great choice. Keuka Yacht Club welcomes new members interested in having access to Keuka Lake and participating in a club that runs on the volunteer spirit of its members. Membership fees are kept low because of the volunteers who run the club.
