Bay Head YC

The Bay Head Yacht Club was established in 1888 in Bay Head, New Jersey. BHYC members were active participants in early sneakbox and catboat racing on the shallow waters of Barnegat Bay. In 1914 the club was a founding member of the Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association. That summer a BHYC sailor won the first BBYRA championship. Since then Bay Head sailors have won 175 championship flags in classes ranging from E Scows to Barnegat Bay’s splendid wooden A Cats.

Today the Bay Head Yacht Club has a vibrant membership of 850 families that enjoy active sailing programs.  The Club is proud to continue its leadership in the sport of sailing. The Club is located at the northern terminus of Barnegat Bay in New Jersey where several sailing Olympians and world champions have competed.

BAY HEAD YACHT CLUB BECOMES NSHOF FOUNDING MEMBER

“Bay Head Yacht Club is proud to support the National Sailing Hall of Fame as a Founding Member. For over 120 years this sort of leadership has been central to the mission of our Club,” said Commodore Austin T. Fragomen.

The Bay Head Yacht Club was established on September 8, 1888 “to promote yachting and rowing and to foster athletic sports upon the water”. Bay Head was then emerging as a popular seaside resort that attracted prominent families from Philadelphia and New York. The first clubhouse was built in 1889 on pilings at the head of Barnegat Bay. The modest building was surrounded by marshes and reached from land by boardwalks. In 1893 the clubhouse was moved 100 yards east to its present location and in 1928 the current clubhouse was built to accommodate a growing membership.

BHYC members were active participants in early sneakbox and catboat racing on the shallow waters of Barnegat Bay. In 1914 the Club was a founding member of the Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association. Bay Head Commodore John V.A. Cattus was elected the BBYRA’s first commodore. That summer O.G. Dale of BHYC won the first BBYRA championship in his 20’ Sneakbox “Arran”. Since then BHYC sailors have won 175 championships in classes ranging from E Scows to Barnegat Bay’s splendid wooden A Cats.

Sam Merrick - Bay Head Yacht Club

Bay Head has had many prominent sailors in its history including Slade Dale, winner of the Cruising Club of America’s Blue Water Medal for 1929 for a cruise to Cuba and back in “Postscript”, a 23’ cutter designed by Dale himself. Also Sam Merrick, champion E Scow sailor, who managed the U.S. Olympic Sailing Team to its best showing ever: an unprecedented three gold and two silver medals in 1984. Sam was honored later that year with US Sailing’s most prestigious award, The Nathanael Herreshoff Trophy.

BHYC's campus is a "key site" in Bay Head's historic district. It includes two buildings separately listed on the National Register as "contributing structures" within the historic district: our clubhouse and the boat shed, formerly known as Dale's Yacht Basin, on Lake Avenue. Our facilities suffered significant damage during Superstorm Sandy. We have completed repairs on everything but the clubhouse. Plans for its restoration are underway and we hope to re-open the clubhouse in 2014.

Things To Do In Bay Head, New Jersey: A Secret at the Shore

Bay Head bech

Upscale yet down-to-earth, Bay Head shares a zip code—and a location at the north end of the Barnegat Peninsula—with the well known shores of Point Pleasant Beach. But the two places can seem a world apart: Whereas Point Pleasant Beach is full of motels, bungalows and boardwalk amusements, Bay Head exudes more of a yacht-club vibe.

Indeed, the Bay Head Yacht Club (est. 1888) has been a center of the town’s social and recreational life for generations. Yet the ambience in this undiscovered spot on the Jersey Shore is tranquil and gracious rather than snobbish.

And at under three-quarters of a square mile in size, Bay Head is compact enough to visit without a car. 

DIY Exploring

Greenville Band B in Bay Head

Perhaps the most distinctive building is the Grenville, a bubblegum-pink Victorian hotel (opened in 1890) with broad conical turrets, scallop shingles and multiple gables. Download a walking tour guide from the Bay Head Historical Society that highlights some of the older residential and commercial buildings as well as notable architectural elements and places of community significance over the years.

Even more properties and details are included in the National Register of Historic Places’  document on Bay Head , also available at the historical society’s website. A  map with four different walk routes can be found on the Bay Head government’s website.

Vintage Auto in Bay Head

The Automobile Museum, meanwhile, displays about eight vehicles at any given time from its collection of hundreds from all eras, along with toy models, books, accessories and memorabilia. A short distance from these museums is  Loveland Homestead , a 19th-century house where the Bay Head Historical Society showcases facets of local history and lore.

And Bay Head has an unofficial fourth museum, inside the house at 666 East Avenue—where L. Ron Hubbard wrote  Dianetics , the book that laid the foundation for Scientology, while a tenant in 1949-50. The house is owned by Scientologists, and upstairs they’ve restored his rooms and set up a retrospective exhibit; knock (or they’ll just come to the door) if you’re interested in visiting.

Where to Eat

Bay Head has two fine-dining restaurants,  Charlie’s and  Theresa’s South . Charlie’s serves various Angus steak cuts and elegant fish dishes but is also popular for cocktails, burgers and raw bar and has outdoor seating on a deck overlooking Twilight Lake.

Theresa’s offers both creative and classic takes on Italian specialties, as well as fish, seafood and beef dishes.  Dune Grass Cafe is a casual spot for breakfast, lunch and ice cream. You can also dine in the restaurant at the Grenville, which features a brunch buffet on Sunday. Be sure to pay a visit to  Mueller’s Bakery , a local legend that’s been around for ages.

Best known for crumb cake (they even sells bags of the “crumbs”), Mueller’s makes a vast assortment of cookies, cakes, doughnuts, cupcakes, breads and—what I think they do best—fruit-filled pastries. 

Where to Stay

bay head yacht club new jersey

The Bentley Inn B&B features 21 rooms decorated in inviting color schemes, with country quilts on the beds. About half the rooms have private baths and some are smallish, but there are ample common areas, including a wraparound porch on the second floor, a front porch and a comfy living room.

Convenient amenities provided for guests include beach towels, outdoor showers, clothesline for wet swimsuits, a communal refrigerator and round-the-clock coffee and tea. At breakfast, you get waitress service and a menu offering five choices ranging from eggs to waffles.

The Bentley is a block and a half from the beach; the only place not within easy walking distance is the train station, about a mile away at the other end of town. Regular rates run $255-$345 a night in summer, dropping to $135-$195 after Labor Day (check Groupon for off season deals).

Insider Tip

As might be expected of an affluent community, Bay Head has several gourmet grocers and boutiques. A special shop is  ReFind , which sells artwork by local artists (including the owner) plus jewelry, clothing, housewares and furnishings.

Much of the merchandise is handcrafted, and some items are made from found and recycled materials—hence the store name. ReFind also hosts workshops and sponsors arts-related public events.

Getting There & Getting Around

NJ Transit trains run hourly (for the most part) from New York Penn Station to Bay Head, with a transfer at Long Branch; total travel time, about 2½ hours. Roundtrip fare is $33.50. Take your bicycle with you, or rent from  Ready to Roll —though you can walk pretty much everywhere. People don’t bother locking their bikes in Bay Head.

The queen of Jersey Shore yacht clubs. Relaxed yet elegant, formal yet friendly, BHYC offers the best tennis/pickle courts, cuisine, and dockage around. Spectacular views of Barnegat Bay from the upper deck makes it a special place to enjoy cocktails especially at sunset. Remember it's private so you need an invitation from a member. If you receive one, don't pass it up!

Was a guest this weekend and had a great time!! This is truly a great venue for a wedding or bridal shower! The beautiful views out the back deck are gorgeous! The staff was very kind and I loved that they had valet service as well! Would recommend if you are looking for a venue in the area- of course as a guest I can't comment on pricing/flexibility or what how it is to work with them but I felt as a guest they had a beautiful space and overall fun venue!! Also bathrooms were very nice!!!

This is a very good place to eat if you are a member at the club. The food is excellent but the prices are a little high. The workers are always nice and willing to lend a hand. Over all a great place to grab a bite if you are a member at the club.

Had a Saturday dinner in the Merrick Center and it was good. Service was good not great and food was decent. The setup, however, is great. There were a good number of people and a good atmosphere.

Went for lunch at the snack bar, and the food was really good. The specials are special for sure. It was very empty at 3pm, but still some people there. You have to be a member to eat here.

A Fresh, Nautical Wedding at Bay Head Yacht Club in Bay Head, New Jersey

Inspired by shabby-chic décor, Cara Delli Paoli (28 and a marketing analyst) and Nikolas (Nik) Kappy (31 and a surgical resident) threw a romantic eve

Inspired by shabby-chic décor, Cara Delli Paoli (28 and a marketing analyst) and Nikolas (Nik) Kappy (31 and a surgical resident) threw a romantic event that allowed the beauty of the ocean to shine. “I was constantly thinking, ‘What would Ina Garten do?’” Cara says of her planning process. They outfitted their wedding in deep blue, sage, cranberry and cream. Nik’s five groomsmen all wore blue suits, while Cara’s six bridesmaids wore sage dresses. Cara’s dress actually included two looks. After the cocktail hour, she removed the tulle skirt to reveal the satin trumpet gown underneath. “I was between styles when originally deciding, so this was the best of both worlds,“ she says. Cara wanted her bouquet to be effortless and romantic. It was a loose mix of ivory and blush roses with pops of cranberry blooms. For the ceremony, a vintage boat was draped in flowers and greenery and parked behind their ceremony podium. After saying “I do,” Cara and Nik stepped onto the boat and coasted out the open bay doors as their guests blew bubbles. They took a quick ride around the bay to celebrate their newlywed status, toasting with champagne and snacking on hors d’oeuvres. Cara’s family designed the place cards, menus and the sea glass wine charms, which guests took home. The couple’s cake included carrot cake (their favorite) and chocolate mousse with strawberries. “Remember: This is your wedding, and you’ll be happiest if it’s what you want as a couple,” Cara says of throwing the perfect bash.
