sailing1The Annisquam Yacht Club is a private club whose purpose since 1896 has been to provide for its members a haven for sailing, yachting, tennis, and friendship. Located 35 miles north of Boston, Massachusetts, the Club sits on the Annisquam River, about .5 miles south of the Annisquam Light and the entrance to Ipswich Bay. Our mooring area is well protected, though crowded; the Club has a limited number of guest moorings and can accommodate visitors to 45’. Launch service is available (see Marina page for schedule). We have no guest rooms at the Club, though there are several B&B’s nearby. The Club serves lunch Thursday through Sunday. There is light dining six nights per week and fine dining Friday - Sunday. (see the Dining and Calendar pages for more information) and a nearby local restaurant serves dinner every evening except Wednesday. We welcome visiting yachts and hope to see you on your cruise.
