Life is Better on the Water!

Thank you for your interest in Halloween Yacht Club!

For nearly a century, Halloween Yacht Club has evolved to meet the ever changing needs of its members while maintaining the tradition and spirit of the club.

Halloween has the most convenient and easily accessible docking facilities in lower Fairfield County. It offers individual slips for boats up to 35 feet with water hookups, dockside power and WiFi. Winter boat storage is offered on land as well as in the water. We also offer year-round rack storage for kayaks and other small craft.

Our private marina is within Halloween Harbor, adjoining Stamford’s Cummings Park. It has 134 slips, with all new docks and floats for the 2021 boating season.  We have more than 300 members who enjoy its facilities, including a scenic deck and clubhouse overlooking Westcott Cove for use by members any time of year.

Our membership is drawn from all spheres of the community who intersect socially, professionally and in leisure pursuits making up our unique personality. The camaraderie and social events are year-round and cater to all of our members

Halloween gives back through events it has been known for.  Since 1986 it has hosted the Mayor’s Cup, a major sail race in Western Long Island Sound, and a qualifier for YRALIS Perpetual Trophies.

In 2012, it founded, sponsors and hosts Hooks for Heroes a charity fishing tournament, recognizing the service of our military members, especially those severely injured as well as our first responders

Halloween members play an integral role leading and steering club community committees. At Halloween, participation is vital to maintain the spirit of our club’s ethos.

There are many events to connect with friends:  crewing at weekly sailboat races, raft up events, monthly couple’s dart nights, our Dock & Dine event, Halloween’s epic costume party,  celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and most recently Rock the Waves at HYC a summer concert series on the water.   You do not need to be a boater or kayaker to be active at Halloween.
