About Us

OBYC began with a few dedicated sportsmen in 1954, and today is a volunteer-run organization with a membership of 260 (limited by design). Although we have minimal amenities, we welcome cruising visitors at our guest moorings and our sailing school is open to the public.

Situated amid spectacular scenery on Merriconeag Sound in Casco Bay, our anchorage (a designated “special anchorage”) is sheltered except in a strong northwest wind.

The Orr’s and Bailey Islands area is home to the historic landmark cribstone bridge, the only one of its kind in the world, where the tide flows freely through its granite block construction. Also nearby is the world-famous Cook’s Lobster House restaurant. Some small shops, restaurants and an outstanding panoramic ocean view are all within a short walk of the Club.

OBYC was featured in the Winter 2009 issue
of Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors.
