The Fayerweather Yacht Club (FYC) has a vibrant racing and cruising background. In its 100-year history it has been a part of the Long Island Sound sailing community, participating in local area regatta's as well as sponsoring charity regattas since the club's inception. There are many opportunities, all season long to get into boating. FYC sponsors, many regattas and a Wednesday Night Race throughout the Summer together with our sister club, Black Rock Yacht Club (BRYC).  We also participate in much larger regattas around LIS. FYC members participate in the Brent C. Donahue Cross Sound Regatta, Block Island Race Week, PYC Faulkner Island race and the Martha's Vineyard regatta. With many FYC boats and crew taking prizes on the podium.

The club is now offering a Ladies Sailing Program, as well as a "Learn to Sail" program with the club owned J22's. In addition, there is a sailboat rental program for those who are qualified.

There are many opportunities for members to get involved. FYC is an open and friendly Sailing and Powerboat community. The large dock, with fuel, electricity, and pump out station, as well as the guest dock and launch, make Fayerweather an ideal location to embark on your next adventure on the water.
