The Yacht Club at Thousand Island Park has been a tradition for generations.  At least one incarnation was known as the St. Lawrence Sailing Club, and other records indicate that the first Thousand Island Park Yacht Club was established as early as 1910.  At one point, Thousand Island Park was known nationally to hold one of the largest fleets of Lightning Class boats in the country.

Regardless of its beginnings, the Club has always had a mission to promote and encourage interest in sailing by providing opportunities for both youth and adult instruction in sailing, boating safety, and handling as well as hosting organized sailboat racing events. 

Prospective members do not have to have a sailboat, or even be thinking about buying one.  The TIPYC has a small fleet of sailboats including Sunfish, Lasers, a Lightning, a Capri, and an O'day day sailor.  These boats are made available to students, both children and adults, in the Sailing School.

In 2014, the Yacht Club committed to building a small fleet of Optimists, an extremely stable and easy to use sailboat intended for use by children up to the age of 15.  The Optimist is the biggest youth racing class in the world. 

We have a very active and successful Youth Sailing Program and many new members take advantage of our Learn to Sail Programs for children, teenagers, and adults.  We also sponsor at least two regattas each summer, with a goal of providing even more racing opportunities in the future.  

Our “Clubhouse,”  the Thousand Island Park Pavilion, is considered an icon along the St. Lawrence River. 

With social events throughout the season, we look to promote and encourage fellowship, friendship and camaraderie within the greater River community.
