The Gibson Island Yacht Squadron has a formidable history of sailing achievements and a long list of sailing legacies! Throughout its history, the Gibson Island Yacht Squadron has been the sponsor of nationally-recognized regattas, most notably the Gibson Island to New London race, and many prominent sailors started their career at the Yacht Squadron. Members enjoy the camaraderie of fellow sailors in a beautiful boathouse with expansive views of the Chesapeake Bay and the Gibson Island Harbor, one of the most scenic and secure harbors on the Bay. Recreational sailing, organized cruises, sailing instruction, and weekly racing both on the Bay and in the Magothy River, are all part of the fun!
Our popular summer Junior Fleet Program introduces sailing to our young novice sailors and sharpens the skills of our more experienced junior racers. The Yacht Squadron hosts two junior regattas and Junior Fleet racers have the option to compete in many other local regattas.
Boat Works, a full service boat yard, is located on Gibson Island.
