About West Dennis Yacht Club
The concept of a yacht club was conceived in 1958, with the incorporation on January 9, 1959. The West Dennis Yacht Club was officially opened on July 18, 1959 with a ceremony attended by families of the charter members, several town officials, local builders and developers. Volunteerism and social activities have been the foundation of the West Dennis Yacht Club since its inception. The WDYC is now approaching 300 membership units (approximately 500 individuals) with a very wide variety of backgrounds and interests. Despite having full and parttime staff, the organization depends on volunteers to plan and organize activities, participate on budget and long-range planning committees, supervise the waterfront and the sailing program, as well as attend the many social events held each season.
