Yacht Club Stories


Preserving America’s sailing legacy for future generations.

Yacht Club Profiles and Stories

The rich history of American sailing has grown and developed from yacht clubs and sailing organizations. Every club and organization has a unique story to tell. Telling these stories uncovers the feats of individual sailors, events that shaped America’s history, adventures of determined characters, achievements by juniors, and amazing ideas from those that grew our sport from wooden boats, small boathouses, and rocky shores across the nation. The National Sailing Hall of Fame is committed to gathering those stories, presenting them to the public and archiving them for future generations.

If you have a story to share, please send it to us at yachtclubstories@nshof.org.
