The Yankee Cruising Club was founded in 1983 to bring LGBTQ boaters together to meet, make friends, and get out on the water together. We strive to be an open and friendly place for people to socialize and be themselves. You don't need a boat or any boating experience to join. We have members and events that stretch from Maine to New York. We host many different types of events like the ones below. If you want more information check out our FAQs, or join the group.
Types of Events
Happy Hours & Land-Based Events
We offer events on land, so that members of the club can get to know each other before going out on the water. We have happy hours, parties, and special events.
Day Sails & Raft ups
These are to get people's feet wet--just a couple of hours out on the water on a short trip or anchoring for eating, drinking, swimming, and socializing.
We plan a couple of extended trips, usually for a weekend or longer, where we travel to and explore various destinations and sleep on the boats.
We don't have a formal process to become a member. Simply choose one of the methods below to stay informed about the club. We recommend all of them so that you don't miss anything.
