Great South Bay Yacht Racing Association, a regional sailing organization located on the south shore of Long Island, NY, welcomes sailors of all ages and abilities to participate in sailing activities! Organized in 1906 GSBYRA is a not-for-profit, sailing organization where fellow sailors race, share and explore educational experiences building boats, promote on the water safety, and enjoy the camaraderie of maritime heritage at social events. Together the  member clubs of GSBYRA coordinate a schedule that includes weekend Invitational racing in one-design classes and PHRF boats, Friday Junior class racing, Race Week, Junior Race Week, and GSBYRA Championships. GSBYRA is a member of US Sailing.

GSBYRA is run by volunteers whose time and expertise is dedicated to the organization. The elected officers and club delegates who direct GSBYRA invite you to improve your sailing or race management skills, and to voice your opinion by joining and supporting GSBYRA! Donations to GSBYRA help GSBYRA maintain and award 33 perpetual trophies displayed at the Long Island Maritime Museum, publish an annual yearbook in which the history of those trophies is recorded, and award annual sailing grants to recognize sailors who pursue post secondary education at two or four year colleges or vocational schools!
