Members Only



For over eight decades, the Storm Trysail Club has been on the leading edge of organizing new events, rating rules, yacht design, safety standards, and racing best practices. The Club organizes many important offshore and inshore regattas, and co-organizes many more.


Currently there are over 1,200 members who have been invited to join the Storm Trysail Club all of whom have demonstrated or are working towards developing a strong and dedicated commitment to offshore sailing. 


Our “home station” and office is housed within the Larchmont Yacht Club, but there are 11 other Stations, or regional chapters, all around the country. The Stations help run regattas, Safety-At-Sea events, and local gatherings on and off the water.


Supported by the Storm Trysail Foundation, the Storm Trysail Club conducts both Hands-On Adult and Junior Safety-At-Sea seminars. We also offer a video library of safety techniques created by our prominent offshore sailor members.
