Welcome from the Commodore
2016 celebrates the 109th summer season for our wonderful yacht club and my second as your Commodore. It is hard to believe it has been a year since the completion of our marina project. The new design and layout has benefited our boat owners and our active sail training fleet. Our next project, the replacement of the entire clubhouse floor, is scheduled to be completed this coming winter. The club is currently in a strong financial position with our membership at full cap.
Barrington Yacht Club is situated on picturesque Barrington Harbor, located at the southern tip of Tyler Point. This well protected harbor in the northeast corner of Narragansett Bay affords the Club an excellent setting to initiate the multitude of activities provided its members while remaining focused on our mission of fostering the sport of yachting.
Barrington Yacht Club is run by a great staff and a dedicated board of directors who work hard to make sure the club and its programs are enjoyed by all our members and their guests. At its core, the club revolves around its members, their love and respect for the water, for sailing and boating with all of the possibilities presented and the camaraderie that comes from this mutual sharing. Club activities are geared toward children, families and adults of all ages and include social events, sail training and sailboat racing for juniors and adults, cruising and hosting and supporting sailing regattas at home and away.
Our club sponsored cruising season starts on Memorial Day weekend, continues with a 10 day summer cruise that spans the Fourth of July holiday, followed by the Fleet Captain Cruise on Labor Day weekend, and finishes on Columbus Day weekend. This summer we will be adding a Commodores Cruise that will take us to Battleship Cove in Fall River the weekend of August 6-7th.
