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.

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!

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.

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!
