The Toms River Yacht Club was established in 1871 and continues to be one of the most active sailing and social clubs in the Barnegat Bay area of New Jersey. This year round club makes full use of the 1200 feet of waterfront equipped with ninety boat slips on the beautiful Toms River.

Toms River Yacht Club has a long history of hosting championship sailing events. In the past TRYC has hosted the Flying Scot North American Championship, the Optimist New Jersey State Championship and the Snipe North American Championship.

History

On July 1, 1871, a group of men interested in yachting and racing organized the Toms River Yacht Club. Charles S. Haines was the first Commodore and his house, the Stewart House, was its first temporary headquarters.

On July 26, 1871, TRYC sponsored its first regatta. The course was from Long Point to Forked River and back. The prize was the Toms River Challenge Cup, a beautiful coin silver trophy designed by Joseph Chattellier who was a charter member of the club. It was created by Tiffany's, New York at a cost of $175. This coveted cup, now the oldest perpetual racing trophy in the United States, has been in competition on Barnegat Bay every year since that date. It resides in the Club's trophy case for all to admire. The stories it could tell!
