Welcome to the 2017 boating season!

 

At the Croton Yacht Club, we are looking forward to seeing you again this season and sharing this wonderful facility and stretch of the river with you.

We have slips for power boats, sail boats and accommodate  jet skis, kayaks and and canoes.

Our location at the widest point of the Hudson River, near the popular Croton Point Bay anchorage and excellent fishing makes the CYC an ideal place to participate in boating.

Beginning boaters get all the support they need from knowledgeable boaters who willingly share tips about the river and maintenance of their vessels. The club is active socially with events for members, associate members and events that are open to the general public. The calendar of events can be found here.

We offer winter boat storage as well for a turn-key, easy boating experience.

If you need to reach us, use the contact us form and we will respond quickly.

We hope to see you on the river this season!

Friday, March 10, 7:30 p.m. - “Croton River to Croton Point – A Hudson River Microcosm”

Scott Craven will be discussing the history and ecological importance of the local Hudson River watershed from the Croton River to Croton Point and explain how this microcosm is representative of the greatest river in the world. This subject was Scott’s Master’s Degree thesis at Western Connecticut University. Scott has lived along the banks of the Hudson River his entire life and is a boater, avid fly fisherman, hiker and historian. Scott has captivated audiences with his presentation on “Lighthouses Along the Hudson” and we are privileged to have him share his extensive knowledge and understanding of the Hudson River with you all.


Friday, April 7, 7:30 p.m. - “The Great Hudson River Striped Bass Fishery”

Captain John Matthews of Halfmoon Charters will present a candid discussion of the Hudson River Striped Bass fishery. Captain John will discuss the remarkable story of the recovery of the Hudson River striped bass population which was long ago devastated by pollution and over-fishing. John has lived on or close to the shores of the Hudson his entire life.

He has past experience working with commercial fishermen on the Hudson and is currently a licensed captain and fishes both the Hudson and the Sound for striped bass and other game fish. John will share his experience as a technician for Texas Instruments, who managed a striped bass tagging and restocking program in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

He will also share tips on where, when and how to fish for striped bass on the Hudson and will share tips and techniques to improve your success. Even the most experienced striped bass fishermen will surely learn something from this insightful seminar. If you ever wanted to learn how to catch a trophy striped bass, you do not want to miss this opportunity to learn from one of the best.
