The Winter Harbor Yacht Club was founded in the 1890s along with the development of the Grindstone Neck summer community. The club is located in Downeast Maine across Frenchman Bay from Mount Desert Island and Bar Harbor. For the 2019 season it is open from June 26th until Labor Day. The club is the center of social life on Grindstone Neck and offers members a wide variety of sailing and racing activities including Knockabout races, Bullseye races, and a Junior Sailing program. The WHYC member facilities include a snack bar, moorings, and a launch service. It is closely associated with the Grindstone Association where golf, tennis and swimming are available.
It was a lovely stay, we hope to get back again once the clubhouse is open.
Very pleasant staff, nice moorings, great launch service.
Ethan and Rob on the dock and with the launch were terrific. Polite, helpful, and available. And the food delivered was delicious.
What a great place, very friendly, very accommodating, launch driver Ethan super friendly. Nearby hiking, use of their pool, cool small town close by with a couple of restaurants, what's not to love!
