The Wickford Yacht Club has a membership of over 100 families and supports many family boating activities including sailboat racing, sailing lessons, cruises, skill building, seminars, as well as a variety of social events. Boat ownership is not a requirement for membership. The Club is located in Wickford Harbor on Narragansett Bay.
Maximum LOA we can accommodate is 40ft
Wickford Yacht Club and Chuck (the Steward) were very welcoming and got us on a mooring with short notice. The harbor is pretty, peaceful and convenient.
nice harbor, well maintained and well marked moorings. WYC did not respond to VHF on channel 9 or phone (early afternoon). Someone did eventually come out in a dinghy. If you are expecting to pick up a specific mooring, be aware that there may be squatters sitting on it.
Always an easy stay. No frills, but convenient.
Nice facility, protected mooring, very quite. The steward was very helpful, a great ambassador for the club and the town of Wickford
They are a great bunch of people. Chuck made sure we had everything that we needed. I highly recommend a visit
Friendly and helpful staff, beautiful harbor
very pleasant staff. but there being no launch service in the entire harbor was a definite negative. we only have oars for our dinghy and rowing to the village took 40 minutes in the calm after a horrendous thunderstorm. I'd hate to think how long it would have taken if there had been any wind.
It was a stunning visit in every way. Facilities great but Chuck and all members of the club we encountered we the true highlight of Wickford. Thank you!
For mooring reservations, bring your dinghy; there are no launch services anywhere in Wickford harbor. Wickford YC has half a dozen (barrel-shaped) guest moorings available, Just inside of breakwater and to the north of the channel. Very peaceful in a light northwest wind. Chief Steward Chuck was very helpful and courteous. Club facilities (shower, etc.) nice and clean. A few good restaurants/coffee shops near Town Dock, a 10-minute dinghy ride into the south arm of the L-shaped harbor.
Very safe harbor to be in during stormy weather. Never made it to land.
WYC is a lovely, but no frills club with a very helpful and accommodating steward who came out to our mooring on arrival to greet us. There are new, clean showers, a long face dock, grills and picnic tables that are available to visiting yachtsmen. The clubhouse is in a nice, quiet part of the harbor and WYC is definitely on our list of places we're looking forward to coming back to.
Had a great time. People were very friendly and inviting. The facility was very nice and clean. Can't wait to go back!
