Nautical Flea Market Volunteers April-22-2017
The 2017 RYC Nautical Flea Market is fast approaching and, as usual, we are in need of Gate Volunteers. As most of you know, the gate is a people intensive particularly on Saturday morning. Our job is to get them in "quick and happy". Please join with those of us that have already signed up and become one of the welcoming team. We will greet thousands of anxious "flea marketeers". The work is fun and rewarding both for the flea market customers, our Yacht Club and we volunteers.
Our shifts are broken up into morning and afternoon for both Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7. If you have an interest in meeting and helping a bunch of folks with money "burning a hole in their pockets", please call or e-mail me noting the time(s) that you are available. I will get a final work schedule and Gate Guidelines to all of our volunteers as soon as possible.
Remember, the work is easy, just meet and greet, so you can do this important job as well as volunteer for other Club functions during this MAJOR FUNDRAISER.

Save the Dates Cruising events for 2017 February-7-2017

See the calendar on this site for these and other club events in 2017.

 

The Rockport Yacht Club was founded in 1969 as the Rockport Sailing Club. In 1993 the clubs scope of activities broadened to include Sail, Power, and non-boating members and a decision was made to change our name to the Rockport Yacht Club. We are a Texas chartered non-profit corporation serving Rockport, the Texas Gulf Coast, and the Coastal Bend. Our By-Laws define our organization and its structure.

The Rockport Yacht Club is a vibrant organization whose members support a variety of community and club events. The club has an extensive racing series both local "Clubhouse Races", "Lighthouse Races" and the offshore "Port Mansfield Regatta". The club organizes participation in other club's activities such as the Navy Regatta and the Harvest Moon Regatta. The club has social events weekly throughout the year. The club participates in Oysterfest, the 4th of July celebration, and Christmas with floats and lighted boat parades. More information, pictures, and future scheduling of those events are available by clicking on the "Activities" tab in the toolbar.

The current Clubhouse was purchased in 1984 and has gone through numerous changes. The last project was completed in mid 2003, and included expansion and remodeling that provided us with the wonderful facility we have today.Our clubhouse can be rented for business or social events; use the "Clubhouse" tab to fill out a request for a reservation.

The club is a member of the U.S. Sailing Association, the Texas Sailing Association, and the Yachting Clubs of America. Many yacht clubs will recognize our membership and will provide reciprocal privileges, but most require cash payments because our club does not guarantee payment of member tabs.

If, after browsing our site, you would like to become a member, go to the "Membership" tab and fill out an application. We would love to welcome you on board!
