Our clubhouse on the Columbia River is the centerpiece for many social events, from Opening Day ceremonies to barbeques, parties, weddings and many events around Christmas.
A major participant and sponsor of sailing races and regattas, Portland Yacht Club counts among its members some of the best sailors on the Columbia. Join our fleet, and join the fun.
Club cruises include Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day events, annual Down-the-River cruise, closing day cruise to Beacon Rock and a cruise to Barkley Sound every other year.
Oregon’s oldest yacht club had its beginnings in 1908 as the Willamette Motor Boat Club, and remains to this day the favorite for many motor boaters.
Located on Marine Drive, PYC facilities provides moorage for two-thirds of the club’s 250 boat owning members, divided about 50/50 sail and power. The club offers open moorage for sailboats, space for member-owned boathouses for powerboats, and new concrete docks for both.
Portland Yacht Club
The foundation of Portland Yacht Club is its membership. From young families, to retired couples, to singles, PYC has a diverse group of individuals that comprise its family. Without this group, none of the exciting activities PYC has to offer would occur. We invite you to explore the many benefits of membership in one of the premier yacht clubs in the Northwest.
