|Chartered in 1936, our founders established the Shrewsbury Sailing and Yacht Club to bring together all who enjoy the simple pleasure of the actions of wind, water and sail. Shrewsbury is about the love of sailing and about the camaraderie that draws sailors together. We are a volunteer organization, run by members for our mutual benefit and for the betterment of the club and the sport of sailing. We work to encourage and preserve the art of sailing and navigation, maintaining one of the top junior sailing programs in the northeast, and one that has produced many national and international champions. At the same time, we continue to promote a top-flight one-design racing program for both adults and children, sailing seven active fleets from April through October.
