Incorporated in 1944 as a non-profit volunteer driven organization we were formed to promote sailing and other forms of boating and we do so with gusto. Most of us are sail boaters, some are power boaters. We are racers, day sailors and cruisers; and some of us are paddlers of various persuasions. We are fisherman and we are “feasters” – we love to barbecue, eat, and a good party; our grills are never cold.
There is always something happening at the Club from sail racing and regattas to learning sessions and parties with dancing. Whether you want to bring family and friends for a nice sunny waterside picnic or host a larger catered event we have plenty of room to make your day or night very special.
Club Members own and manage the club themselves, keeping the operating costs to a minimum. The Club relies primarily on its own members for maintenance and improvements of Club facilities and equipment. All members are expected to pitch in. This also becomes a great way to get to know other members and to invest in the culture of the Club.
Located in Sheepshead Bay Miramar Yacht Club is perfectly situated very close to public transportation, only minutes from restaurants and Coney Island beaches, with access to some of the finest sailing grounds and only a quick hop to the open ocean.

Owning a boat is not a membership requirement at Miramar.
While the focus of the Club is to encourage and support recreational sailing activities, we have many social activities which appeal to boaters and non-boaters alike. Our Club is made up a variety of people of all ages, various backgrounds and occupations from all around Brooklyn and beyond who share a genuine interest in having fun both on and off the water and love boats and sailing. All you need to belong is a desire to have fun and get acquainted.
Miramar Yacht Club always welcomes new members. There are different types of membership available, and you don't have to own a boat to become a member or to go out and enjoy sailing every day. Contact our officers and come for a visit; we will be glad to show you around. Let us show you how easy and economical it is to access and enjoy the water in New York City.
