The name ‘Seawanhaka’ is derived from a tribe of Indians who made their home on Centre Island. Seawanhaka was founded in September 1871 aboard William L. Swan’s sloop GLANCE anchored off Soper’s Point, Centre Island.

The mission of the Club is to encourage its members to become proficient in the personal management, control and handling of their yachts in every condition, including matters pertaining to navigation, seamanship, cruising, competitive sailing and race management.
Seawanhaka members have exerted an influence on yachting out of all proportion to their number. Single file and as teams they have paraded across the deck of yachting history- studying wind and weather patterns, tides and currents, designs of sails and forms of hull, innovative uses of chemicals and natural elements, geodetic surveys and the course of the heavens. In addition, our members have developed the current racing rules, promoted yachting unions on the national level, continue to devise scientific handicapping systems, engineer rigging and weight saving schemes, invented the so-called Olympic course, supplied the nation with gold, silver and bronze medalists in the Olympics, provided the first Americans to win the Scandinavian Gold Cup and the French One Ton Cup, brought home a number of national and international class championships. And the list goes on and on…
What is the reason for this? For more than a century, Seawanhaka members have held to the belief that amateur, or Corinthian, is not an excuse for inferior performance; on the contrary, they have shown a desire to compete against the very best, a willingness to experiment, to take the sport seriously, to discover enjoyment in self-sacrifice, to strive for mastery – individually as well as together, to encourage newcomers to the sport, to give prodigally of their time, and to share their discoveries as well as their winning secrets freely.
