The Hempstead Bay Sailing Club (HBSC) is a non-profit sailing organization located on the south shore of Long Island in Nassau County. We are a small club of dedicated sailors with an emphasis on fun. Our club has remained true to its sailboat-racing heritage while growing and adapting with the membership to include cruising and power boats.

HBSC encourages friendly competition and provides a common bond for members and their families. Membership is affordable and open to anyone with an interest in sailing. See "How to join Hempstead Bay Sailing Club" for more info.
