Message from Commodore Howard Irwin


The Garden State Yacht Club is unique landmark located on the west shore of Lake Hopatcong.  It’s a very special place.

GSYC is a private club offering recreational and social activities year-round for families of all ages.  Many of our members describe their season as “Summer camp for adults”. Our members have a very active role in coordinating the events.  This camaraderie makes every one of our club experiences more enjoyable and very memorable.

During my term as Commodore, I will try to offer our membership new experiences while maintaining the traditional programming and activities that we have all come to love.

The FUN at GSYC happens all year long.   The activities include Friday and Saturday night entertainment every weekend from Memorial Day to Labor Day, theme parties, music by the heated pool on Sundays, picnics, local tours and trips, foreign film nights, helping to put our boat docks in and out, sailing, boating and kayaking.

The friendships created at the GSYC last a lifetime!

Looking forward to a spectacular 2020 season.

Howard Irwin
