About the Boat Club

The Youngstown Yacht Club recently helped the Youngstown Community Boating (YCB) raise $75,000 to buy 4 Ideal 18’s. We have come to an agreement with the YSF that YYC members can use these boats, when they are not in use by the YSF. The Ideal 18’s are an easy to sail boat with simplicity, comfort and performance in mind. The boats are kept on the dock in Fairbank Harbor and can be sailing in minutes!

YYC members that would like to use these boats are required to join the YYC Boat Club. YYC regular members may join the Boat Club for free and Associate members may join for $250. If you would like to try the boats before joining, email and we will schedule a free trial.

The Youngstown Community Boating  is also offering adult sailing lessons for those that are new to sailing. The classes take place over 3 evening and the next session begins in August. If you would like to learn more about the lessons, visit

To join the Boat Club, members should fill out the application on our website. You will be notified once your application has been approved and will be able to schedule use of the boats through our online booking portal.
