The Deer Isle Yacht Club is a small, local yacht club in Sylvester’s Cove, Sunset, Maine. The Club was founded in 1925 with the purpose of providing facilities and activities for its members in their use of Penobscot Bay and adjacent waters; encouraging amateur yachting, both recreational and competitive; promoting sound seamanship; and fostering knowledge of and respect for the dangers of the sea.
Facilities are as minimal as the club has no potable water, no fuel dock, no showers, and little parking. There is a guest mooring is available for visiting sailors suitable for a boat up to about 40 feet. Sailing lessons are provided to Deer Isle residents of any age, but Membership is necessarily limited by the size of the Cove; more information can be found at the Membership section of this website.
