Located in Wilson Cove, and protected by Sheffield Island, Tavern Island, and Bell Island, Norwalk Yacht Club is a casual and family-oriented sailing club. Established in 1894, the Club is tucked inside Greens Ledge Light in a quiet cove featuring a small beach. There is beautiful kayaking and paddle boarding through the Norwalk Islands, Village Creek and Farm Creek. The Club mooring field accommodates sail and power boats of varying drafts. Club launch service runs from 8AM-11 PM seven days a week during commissioned season. Water and ice are available on the docks where there is about 7 feet at low tide. The deck provides picnic tables and grills and plenty of space to relax and enjoy the views. Showers and an air conditioned great room are available.
The launch brings visitors within an easy walk of the quaint town of Rowayton. Rowayton offers casual restaurants with good coffee, ice cream and sandwiches as well as more formal dining options, and access to provisions. Both Rowayton and historic SoNo are also easily accessible by cab. Hail the dock team on VHF channel 78A ,call us, or book directly through Dockwa.
Great place. Excellent service. Definitely coming back
On a mooring for one night. Very accommodating. Enjoyed the view of the Norwalk Islands.
This is the second time we have stayed at Norwalk YC. We returned because we had such a great visit the first time. Even though this is no longer the "high season", they still had plenty of helpful staff. We got water at their dock - super easy. The NYC staff were again very friendly and responsive during the Dockwa reservation process. We extended our stay to 2 nights. The NYC facilities are very nice. Launch service was great - still running to 9 PM. The wind was very strong the second night (gusts to 30 kt) - out of the South and the mooring field was very exposed and rolly, but nothing NYC could do about that. We will definitely come back.
Very friendly and accommodating staff.
Very easy entrance with wide channel from Greens Ledge light. NYC was very cooperative shifting our arrival date. Happy to have a mooring at outside of field, so we didn'y have to search around. Harbor was quiet and peaceful. Launch service appeared to be very well-managed on a busy holiday weekend -- although we did not go ashore, so we can't comment on shore-side facilities.
Great club. Friendly people. Nice clubhouse. Nearby restaurants
Always very gracious and accommodating hosts. Members are very welcoming.
Fabulous stay at NYC! The launch staff were really helpful, great harbor for swimming and enjoying the water, and close to two great dining areas - SoNo and Rowayton. One of our new favorites spots. The harbor does get a bit rocky during busy holiday days - but it is worth it!
Nice harbor and facility. No restaurant or bar within easy walk, but friendly launch driver offered to drop me in Rowayton side of harbor
We arrived very late, so prior to arrival over the phone we got very good directions hot to find our mooring. Launching service was also very prompt and smooth.
Great service, prompt, friendly, clean, and welcoming!
The Club was extremely welcoming and helpful. The Club manager greeted us warmly and briefed us on Club events and invited us to enjoy their 125 anniversary event. The launch service an it’s crew were professional and fun. A very pleasant stay. We will be back!
Great little club that is clean, neat, and active on all important fronts. No food service. I come here yearly.
Courteous and friendly staff, wonderful club house, BBQs and tables to enjoy the view while eating
Loud party on boat on nearby mooring till 1AM... other than that friendly staff and clean mooring lines...
