West Dennis Yacht Club

In 1958 West Dennis residents were looking for an ideal site to establish a boating and social club. The “Fingers” were in the early stages of development and offered a perfect location. Land was purchased, a building was erected, and eight moorings in Weir Creek were acquired. The West Dennis Yacht Club officially opened on July 18, 1959. The sailing school was established during that first summer.

The Junior Yacht Club was established in 1962 to offer sailing and social events to young club members. An annual fundraising event to benefit a community organization is still a part of this group’s activities.

The WDYC has grown significantly from a seasonal to a year-round club. Over the years the Club has expanded to over three hundred members and thirty-nine boat slips.

Family Friendly Club Right on the Water

The West Dennis Yacht Club is a family friendly club right on the water with some of the most beautiful sunsets in the area. The sailing club is fantastic and two of our grandchildren have participated.
