The Wiscasset Yacht Club was formed in 1952 by 23 founding members, 3 of whom are still members. The present Club House was built on pilings over the water and because of deterioration of the foundation piles was moved to land in 2010. A new pier was built in 2016. Water and power was supplied to the floating docks recently. Most of the work to upgrade and maintain the club’s house and facilities has been done by volunteer members. We have a wonderful building located on picturesque Wiscasset Harbor. The Wiscasset Yacht Club welcomes sailors, power boaters, kayakers, fishermen, families and singles, and vessels large or small.
The mission of the club has been to promote fellowship and activities on the water and ashore. The club is open from April in the spring until October in the fall. In recent years, the membership has continued to socialize weekly during the winter at a local watering hole or a member’s home. The winter activities have become more and more welcome outside the boating season. The club begins its season with a spring banquet and then opening day about the last Sunday in April.
The summer is filled with activities on the water and on shore. Wednesday Grille Night and Friday socials have become very popular. There are parties and Rendezvous at the club house and on the water.
A new addition to our club is a sailing program with instruction for youth and adults. We have a new (to us) building which will be developed into a Sailing Center for the club’s sailboats.
Whether or not you own a boat or just love to be around them, the Wiscasset Yacht Club welcomes you with open arms! We love boating and all that goes along with it!!
