But it's not just about the voyages.
The Baldwin Yacht Club is also known for its lively social and off season calendar.
Our annual spring dinner dance at the US Coast Guard Academy is a night of elegance and merriment, where members come together to celebrate their shared passion for the sea. Additionally, our commissioning ceremonies at the historic Mystic Seaport pay homage to the maritime traditions that have shaped our history.
Even during the winter months, the adventure continues. Our winter rendezvous in Vermont and Florida offer the perfect opportunity to either escape or embrace the cold and reconnect with fellow members. Whether you prefer the snow-covered mountains or the warm coastal breeze, these gatherings foster lasting friendships and create memories to cherish.
