Over 100-plus years of yachting history.

Abigail Smith, daughter of the minister of Old North Church,was born in Weymouth Heights in 1744. There she was raised, courted, and married to John Adams of nearby Quincy.They became the parents of John Quincy Adams. For many years, Abigail was the only woman who was married to one president and the mother of another president. John and Abigail were known to enjoy an evening row along Weymouth and Quincy shores.

Captain George Weymouth (1614) explores Martha’s Vineyard for gold. Takes Squanto, who had been captured by Captain John Smith’s men, back to England. Weymouth then gets a town named after hinself, and here at Weymouth’s Hunt’s Hill, it was believed to be site of the first colony.

Wessagussett Yacht Club was Established in 1902 and Incorporated in 1903, with a rich history in sailing and power yachting within the south shore waterfront community. In the early 1900’s, vacationers from Boston and throughout New England would travel to the shores to enjoy summer time recreation. Today we are still providing access for families to what is now become a National Park with a harbor of 30 Islands to explore!
