  • About The Fire Island Yacht Club

    The Fire Island Yacht Club was conceived during a September 2012 get-together of boating friends at Atlantique Marina on Fire Island. What began as a promising idea has quickly grown into an active social community with members from many ports and all walks of life. In the coming months we'll be adding lots of new content to this site and reaching out to local businesses and merchants who would like to connect with our club members. We look forward to 2016 with optimism that we will continue to enjoy the good life with our friends and families while cruising to, and getting together on, our beautiful Fire Island.

  • From Commodore Doug & Vice-Commodore Debbie:

    Ahoy Mate!

    Have you ever woken up on a beautiful spring/summer day, headed down to your boat looking to go out and wondered where you were going to go? Well, we’ve come across many people that think the same thing.

    How would you like to get on your VHF (channel 78) and reach out to fun, active, friendly boaters that have the same hobbies and interests that you have?

    We have created a way to do just that. You pick up your microphone and hail out to fellow FIYC boaters. It’s that easy!

    Give your intended location for others to join you or find out where you can meet up with them. Some of the best times on the water are spent with friends, old and new. People make the party!

    So, if you are a person that loves to have a good time with other boaters or beach loving people and enjoy what the Great South Bay and Fire Island has to offer, we welcome you to become a member of the Fire Island Yacht Club (FIYC). Click here to join now.

    It takes only a good attitude to join. No vessel is too big or too small. We’re accepting of everyone.

    Welcome aboard “The Fire Island Yacht Club”.

  • From Commodore Jim & Vice-Commodore Elaine:

    Ahoy and Welcome aboard!

    The Fire Island Yacht Club was conceived as a way to bring together fun-loving boaters (and even non-boaters!) who love to spend time on or near New York's famous Fire Island. There are no fees, no commitments, no hassles, and no reason not to join. You'll be instantly connected to a world of fun, friends, family and fantastic events and get-togethers, and have access to tons of boating information and resources that are sure to make your next outing one you'll remember forever.

    Sign-up only takes a minute, and we'd never share your personal information with anyone, so why not do it today? Click here to join now.

    Hurricane Sandy has impacted us all, and has severely damaged many of our beaches and marinas here on the south shores of Long Island. Our hearts go out to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one or damage to their property. Now more than ever we'll be relying upon our fellow boaters and beachgoers to let us know where and when to find each other and how to make the best of the coming boating seasons. Let's also make a pact to assist in the cleanup efforts and to support the businesses and homeowners who are rebuilding our beautiful Fire Island.

    So, start planning on making the summer of 2016 one of the best yet. We think there's nothing better than spending quality time on our boats while cruising, docking, and rafting up with our family and friends. I guess that's why they call it "Friend-SHIP".

    Fair winds and following seas!

    Data from the U.S. Coast Guard Maritime Telecommunications Information

    NOAA Weather Radio Frequencies, in MHz






















    See the NOAA Weather Radio Homepage for more information.


    Frequencies are in MHz. Modulation is 16KF3E or 16KG3E.

    NOTE: USCG District 1 (Northeast US) is now reserving Channel 16 for Distress and International Hailing only. Channel 9 is now the recommended hailing channel. Once contact is made on a hailing frequency, boaters should switch to a working frequency to engage in conversation. This practice should keep the hailing frequencies relatively clear of "idle chatter".

    Note that the letter "A" indicates simplex use of the ship station transmit side of an international duplex channel, and that operations are different than international operations on that channel. Some VHF transceivers are equipped with an "International - U.S." switch for that purpose. "A" channels are generally only used in the United States, and use is normally not recognized or allowed outside the U.S. The letter "B" indicates simplex use of the coast station transmit side of an international duplex channel. The U.S. does not currently use "B" channels for simplex communications in this band.

    Boaters should normally use channels listed as Non-Commercial. Channel 16 is used for calling other stations or for distress alerting. Channel 13 should be used to contact a ship when there is danger of collision. All ships of length 20m or greater are required to guard VHF channel 13, in addition to VHF channel 16, when operating within U.S. territorial waters. Users may be fined by the FCC for improper use of these channels.

  • Site Design and Underlying Technologies

    The Fire Island Yacht Club™ website was designed and coded by James Kirschberg. Copyright 2012 All rights reserved.

    This site was created using Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, and is specifically designed for deployment on Linux host systems.

    In order to present dynamic page elements on devices that do not support Flash (specifically those built on Apple iOS) and to increase the stability of the site and the supporting platform, a combination of HTML5, CSS, PHP, Javascript, and AJAX programming has been used where appropriate.

    Splash page transitions, scrollbars, and menu functions were created using a mixture of Javascript/Jquery, HTML5, and CSS.

    The webforms were created using Javascript for validation and PHP/AJAX for submittal to the host mail daemon. Website audio was created using Javascript, Jquery, and the Jplayer media player plug-in, and then customized using CSS.

    Doppler radar images are courtesy of the National Weather Service. Layering of the NWS radar loops, topos, warnings, and legend GIFS are via CSS z-index.

    Weather reports and forecasts are courtesy of WeatherForYou. Tide chart courtesy of TideSpy. Land maps and satellite imagery are courtesy of Google Inc.

    Local marine bulletins, observations and forecasts, and interactive nautical charts, are provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
