RHYC, is one of the oldest yacht clubs in Washington, having celebrated our centennial in 2006. We are a very active cruising yacht club, with approximately 200 members. Most members reside in the western Washington, with a few from other states as far away as Texas and New Jersey!
RHYC has scheduled cruises or events most months at various moorages or locations in Puget Sound. We visit ports such as Roche Harbor, Poulsbo, Kingston, Port Orchard, Gig Harbor, Pleasant Harbor, Longbranch, Port Townsend, Dockton, Bremerton, Everett, Oak Harbor, Tacoma, and Lake Washington for events like St. Patrick's Day, Opening Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Christmas Parades and New Years. Typically there are 20 or more boats in attendance, in a wagon wheel or at a marina. Activities include boat hopping, dock parties, potluck dinners, cookouts or meals of regional specialties, with an emphasis on participation, safe boating, FUN and fellowship.
Where is RHYC?
While our heritage lives on in Roche Harbor, San Juan Island, where we maintain 80 feet of dock space as an outstation; we focus on our monthly cruises and events, which are the heart and soul of the club's purpose. In addition to Roche Harbor, we maintain Outstations at Kingston, Dock Street in Tacoma, and Fisherman's Bay on Lopez Island. We also have reciprocal agreements with nearly 100 other yacht clubs.
If you are looking for a club where the emphasis is on having fun in the beautiful surroundings of Puget Sound and the Pacific Northwest, you are welcome to visit us during one of our cruises.
