ABOUT THE 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. Since then we have further expanded our scope to also include kayaks, paddleboards, and anything used to convey people on the water. 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 hosts several regattas throughout the year, including the Texas Sailing Association Youth Rockin' Rockport Regatta and Lighthouse Regatta. Boat cruises such as the Tiki Beach Cruise and other raft-ups, lunches, and dinners are planned each year. The club also participates in other clubs' activities such as the Navy Regatta and the Harvest Moon Regatta. Weekly social events are held throughout the year. We also participate in community activities such as 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.
