Blessed with the finest protected sailing waters, LEHYC has hosted many regional, national and international regattas including the US Sailing Mallory, Adams and O'Day championships. Our highly skilled and respected race committee has twice been awarded US Sailing's prestigious St. Petersburg Trophy for excellence in race management. LEHYC hosts several regattas every summer; the annual Down Bay Invitational in August is the high point of the regatta season. The Barclay Cup team race held annually since 1928, currently in Optis, is the oldest active sailing trophy in the state of New Jersey.

LEHYC has very active sailing programs for youth and adults. Junior sailors learn and compete in the Optimist Dinghy as well Lasers and Club 420s. LEHYC also conducts weekly senior racing in E-Scows, Marshall Sanderling Catboats, Lightnings, M-15s and Lasers.
