Additional info:

Approach

Caution, don't follow local sailboats !! They tend to stay out of the channel. It is too easy to believe the water is deep enough for you, with numerous shallow draft sailboats being free to sail outside the channel markers. Leading to the marina is 1/2 mile channel ending in a lazy 90 degree bend that is mandatory for you to follow, but of no signficance to the numerous local sailing craft that can manuver in 4-5 foot waters. Cut corners .. and you will have the joy of an audience of many dozen professional sailors witnessing your grounding.

Reviews for Cedar Point Yacht Club
The best dinghy racing club on the Sound, 2016-07-30
Captain: , Westport, ct (20)

OK, I'm biased. It's my home Club. Tansients docks available if there's space. Snack bar until 5. Nice beaches,



Cedar Point YC, 2015-09-13
Captain: , Scarsdale, NY (190)

Agree with all in the other review. I've stopped here for anywhere from a few hours to a few days, and they've always found room for me when I phone or radio ahead. Very helpful staff. Navigation is not tricky or difficult -- you just have to pay close attention to all the buoys all the way in from George's Rock and into the twisty channel. It takes about a half hour to get in and out of the well-protected and quiet CPYC basin. Also, Westport is definitely worth a visit (for food and shopping) but CPYC is not near town, so bring a bike or plan on calling for cabs.



A Small Boat Racing Sailor's Dream, 2007-02-22
Captain: , Huntington, NY (2310)

Wish I lived here !! This facility is home to at least 6 classes of one design racing sailboats, with a multi acre facility for dry storage and launching for racing fleets, and modern construction docks for cruisers, all nestled in a quiet and scenic multi-million dollar residential community.

For a small sailboat sailor this place has more than everything, it is absolutely gold plated, built from the ground up to support sailing enthusiasts getting on and off the water efficiently, as well as having a great club atmosphere. A cruising family might view the same facility as not quite gold plated as it’s missing some amenities that normally go with 5 star ratings (e.g. no restaurant, no swimming pool, no shopping), but even they will recognize Cedar Point is extremely clean and what is here for them is very well done.

Although no restaurant, the yacht club building has a 2 story wrap around outside deck with a bar & grill that serves a tasty assortment of food in addition to burgers and frys. There is also a sandy beach, perhaps to rocky for swimming, but great for lounging, and a well equipped kids playground near the club house.

Not sure of weather? The dock master is constantly keeping tabs on what's happening, keeps his eye on a PC with doppler radar displays, and frequently provides announcements to the various sailing fleets over the VHF when weather is iffy.

This is a residential neighborhood, getting to anything in town takes a 20+ minute taxi ride that first needs to wind through gorgeous, but narrow and stop sign challenged roads.

By sea be very careful on the approach and don't follow the smaller sailboats!! It is too easy to believe the water is deep enough for you, with numerous shallow draft sailboats being free to sail outside the channel markers. Leading to the marina is 1/2 mile channel ending in a lazy 90 degree bend that is mandatory for you to follow closely, but of no significance to the numerous local sailing craft that can maneuver in 4-5 foot waters. Cut corners .. and you will have the joy of an audience of many dozen professional sailors witnessing your grounding.

There are no dedicated transient slips but if your lucky to catch a temporarily available slip, and your a racing sailor at heart, you will really enjoy a visit and leave wanting for many improvements in your home marina in both facilities and friendly atmosphere.
