Masthead Cove Yacht club is designed to meet the particular needs of the sailing family.  These needs continue to be met by following the simple guidelines established when the club was formed in 1975.

  • To be eligible you must own a sail boat over 20 feet in length and be berthed in the waterways of the Town of Huntington or Oyster Bay Harbor.
  • Membership is limited to 100 families.  This allows the club to be large enough to support a variety of activities yet small enough to assure a spirit of camaraderie.
  • Cost of membership is kept to a minimum.  Instead of maintaining a clubhouse, our “clubhouse” consists of three large mooring buoys located in Lloyd Harbor, Oyster Bay Cove and Port Jefferson which can accommodate members’ boats for relaxation and social activities.
  • Club activities provide something for every sailor, every sailing family, every family, and every level of sailing skill.
  • The club’s credo is very simple: Enjoy your sailing experiences in the good company of other sailors and have fun doing it.
