The Constitution of the Olcott Yacht Club



Founded in 1920, Olcott Yacht Club is located on the southern shore of beautiful Lake Ontario.  Our members come from all walks of life and do not have to own a boat, or even be thinking about buying a boat to belong.  They spread the excitement of sailing and boating through the area through youth and adult sailing instruction, club racing, and various club gatherings and events.


  • Notice to Mariners Visiting Olcott Harbor: The entrance to Olcott harbor has been extensively modified.  This will not appear on existing charts as the work was completed in November of 2021. The photo below was made just prior to completion, but the structure is essentially the same.  Negotiating this may be challenging at night and in reduced visibility.

  • The 2021 Southshore Solstice Race was successfully held June 18 & 19.  Visit the Yacht Scoring website for results ("Results Race 1").

  • OYC has a new phone number: 716.638.4378​
