The Rockport Yacht Club has a new to us Sailboat, it's a Harbor 20' March-20-2019
 
  
 
   

 

 This is a beautiful 20' day sailor with room for 6.She is coming to the RYC via club members Jim and Heidi Marmion. Yes they are donating this fine sailboat to our Yacht Club. Big hand and Thank You to Jim & Heidi....!  The idea of such a boat is to give the RYC a method for which to teach adults as well as kids the wonderful sport of sailing. We have chosen this boat for it's ease of sailing as well as it's beautiful lines. The boat was found in Houston, she is a 2011 model in excellent condition.  Even though she is in excellent condition there are a few things we need to do as a club to get her ready to sail.....So we are scheduling a couple work days over the next couple weekends.....
      Saturday March 23rd 9:00 to 12:00
      Saturday March 30th 9:00 to ......
What needs to be done:
1) compound the hull and replace the stripes and boat name.
2) sand the bottom prep for bottom paint (she has a few blisters we will repair)
3) Bottom Paint
4) go over running and standing rigging, replace as needed.
New sails and spinnaker gear are on order for her, we can clean up the old sails for use as well (a good scrubbing).Once she is complete we will keep her in the water at the club. The bridge & board will sorted a plan for how members will be able to sail her responsibly.  We will bring her to the RYC via trailer for the work days. If you have expertise and tools in the areas for which she needs work, (or just want to help and learn) come pitch in to bring this fine Sailboat home to the RYC.  Again.....a Big Hand and Thank You to Jim & Heidi...!

Rockport Yacht Club 

The Rockport Sailing Club was founded in 1969; in 1993 the decision was made to change our name to the Rockport Yacht Club, and the club's scope of activities broadened to include sail-, power-, and non-boating members.  We are a Texas chartered non-profit corporation serving the Texas Gulf Coast including Rockport 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 clubs' 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, 4th of July, and Christmas celebrations with floats and lighted boat parades. Links to more information, pictures, and future scheduling of those events are posted in the left-side toolbar of this home page.

The current Clubhouse was purchased in 1984 and has gone through numerous changes. Expansion and remodeling were completed in mid 2003, and provided us with the wonderful facility we have today. The damage resulting from hurricane Harvey has been repaired. 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!
