Founded in 1920, Pequot Yacht Club is located in the historic district of Southport CT. Amidst the exquisite setting, Pequot actively promotes sailing in the greater community. Many of the sailors in the Junior Sailing program are non-members. Sailors from all over Fairfield County from the local high schools sailing teams practice and race 420s at Pequot in the Spring and Fall. Sea Scout Ship 84 is moored in Southport Harbor and Pequot provides its facilities for training programs. Pequot also hosts young adults from FSW (Family Services Woodfield) through the Sailing with Neighbors Program.
Pequot Yacht Club was established for the development of interest in sailing. Since that time, members have been active cruisers and racers in the sport at the regional, national and international levels. Today, the Club supports an active junior program, a large cruising fleet, Ideal 18s, a Dyer Dhow frostbite contingent and a growing fleet of pond yachts. Pequot Yacht Club has remained an organization focused on sailing. While sailing is the priority, the Club has a social side as well, with a galley and dining room for daily lunches and evening parties throughout the year.
