Quannapowitt is the oldest inland boat club in America, founded in 1884. We are a family oriented boat club whose mission is to keep sailing costs low, and are perhaps "the best kept secret" and one of the most affordable boat clubs in eastern Massachusetts..


Owner: eric_w

Come join us and get away from the daily grind in the wholesome outdoors. You can enjoy sailing near the city and near home in Wakefield at the Quannapowitt Yacht Club.

The Club features many active sailboat Fleets . QYC sailors are active in local, regional, and national regattas. Our racing calendar runs from May through mid-October each year. The facility is open all year for indoor activities.

QYC is located at the end of Linda Road, at the flashing light on North Avenue in Wakefield just South of Rt. 128 exit 39. At the end of the road, each social event and each sailing event is like a small vacation.

Membership is open to qualified individuals and families.Give us a call at (339) 203-9201 or send e-mail for more information.

YSP Registration is Open!

Registration for the Youth Sailing Program is now OPEN for QYC members.   Registration opens to the general public in April.  We are slowly making our way into the 21st century - registration is now online here (although we cannot yet accept online payments). 

Summer is not over... Sunday Sailing, Last Blasts, and Chaos!

It might be getting a bit chilly outside but there is plenty of the 2014 sailing season left.  We will be sailing on Sundays as usual until October 12th.  On Saturday October 11th the Lasers will be hosting their "Last Blast Regatta" that is allways a fun and well attended event.  The Following weekend on Saturday October 18th the Chaos Cup will be hosted by the Flying Scot Fleet.

Space Available in Youth Sailing Program

There is still space available in all sessions for the Youth Sailing Program - if you know a child who might be interested, please let them know we are accepting registrations.  The orientation is Saturday, 14 June, from 2-4pm at the club, but if families are unable to attend, they can contact the YSP board and get the information they need.

2014 Adult Sailing Lessons are Full

Due to the limited resources that we have we can't accept any more people for the group sailing lessons.  Thanks for the interest and please try again next year.

Summer Series One Has Begun!

Summer Series One has started.  Now that the racing season is under way make sure that you know when your Race Comittee duty is.  A new link has been added to the Sign Up Genius web site called "Race Comittee Duty."  You will be sent an email reminder 5 days before your assignment.

Get Ready For 2014

The winter may have seemed longer this year but the club will be open before you know it! 

The club is offering discounts for new members to take advantage of this year.  The fee for adult sailing lessons can also be applied to new memberships.   Basically new members can join the club and get adult sailing lessons for free!

Water is both the medium our sport is played in and a substance so dangerous that the National Safety Council reports that over 7000 people drown annually.
