About the Club

Established in 1865, and as one of the oldest yacht clubs in the country, Raritan Yacht Club has a rich history both on and off the water. 

With our spacious clubhouse, large yard, extensive mooring field, active and competitive racing fleet and myriad of social activities for all ages, RYC is a club run by members for members. Serving as the RYC clubhouse since the original was destroyed by fire in 1915, the Cooper Mansion is a wonderful example of gracious living from a bygone era. Our yard facility provides members with the ability to store, haul and launch boats up to 35 ft. The club has a true volunteer spirit; not only contributing their time to running and upkeep of the club but also providing a service to the local community.
