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 schedules monthly cruises and
events to various moorages 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 30 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
Where is RHYC?
While our heritage lives on in Roche
Harbor, San Juan Island, where we maintain 160 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
in Kingston, at 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.
