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.
2023 Youth Boating & Sailing Instruction online registration is now open. See the "Youth Education" page.
The preliminary 2023 Events & Entertainment calendar is available for download.
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.
OYC has a new phone number: 716.638.4378
