"The Shelter Island Yacht Club, established in the summer of 1886, has the distinction of being one of the oldest clubs in North America. The founding members were business and professional men from Manhattan and Brooklyn who had summer residences in Shelter Island Heights. . . . For nearly 50 years, the Shelter Island Yacht Club fleet remained a miscellany of elegant steam and sailing yachts of all sizes. The original clubhouse, built on Chequit Point in lovely Dering Harbor in 1892, . . . A Junior Yacht Club, organized in the late 1920s, acquired a home of its own in 1958."
