Dear Fellow Boater,
We are pleased that you are considering joining Rose City Yacht Club. RCYC is one of the oldest and largest yacht clubs in the area. Originally founded in 1932 when twenty local boaters organized the Rose City Cruising Club on the Willamette, the club was reorganized as Rose City Yacht Club a few years later and moved to the Columbia River. After several relocations and expansions, RCYC has arrived at its current location on Marine Drive near NE 33rd Drive.
We currently have around 150 active members: individuals, couples, and families who enjoy the convenience and security of a private moorage, gated parking area, and floating clubhouse. Our yearly program of activities includes cruises to many popular sites up and down the river, a full racing calendar, and educational and social activities. From the convenience of our moorage, members also pursue their own boating goals, from day sailing, to river cruising, to longer cruises to other West Coast locations, as well as potlucks with friends and swapping stories on the docks.
Whether you’re looking for organized or impromptu boating activities, social, competitive, or educational experiences, you’ll find others here who share your enthusiasm and goals. At RCYC, we have something for nearly everyone who enjoys boating.
I’d be glad to talk to you further about membership. Please feel free to call at any time and I can arrange for you to tour our facilities, attend one of our regular monthly meetings, or meet our board of directors.
