Membership Information

Who We Are

RYC is a social club with a fully owned clubhouse with first class amenities and a guest dock. There are weekly potluck BBQs, cruises by water and land, numerous annual events, and lots of camaraderie. Other benefits include:

  • Cruising in numbers
  • Making lifelong friendships
  • Meeting/socializing with members from other Columbia River yacht clubs
  • Enjoying reciprocal mooring privileges with other over 50 yacht clubs in the northwest
  • Learning to navigate the waterways and locks

Membership Availability / Process

To insure a continued focus on boating, the Club limits the number of members who are not assigned moorage. That limit has been met and the number of slips available for moorage are quite limited (refer to Moorage Map link below). If one of the available moorage sites suits your needs, submit a membership application with your initiation fee to the address below. An orientation for potential members is typically held before the General Membership meeting on the 1st Tuesday of the month. If there is no moorage available, you are encouraged to be placed on our waiting list. Please submit your membership application (with the initiation fee) with an appropriate note. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to Contact Us.


Initiation fee: $600 

Annual dues: $600 per year (Jan – Dec). Dues are prorated for members joining after January 1st.

Junior Memberships

To be authorized for unescorted access to the Club premises and docks, the minor children of our members must apply for, and be granted, Junior Membership. There is no initiation fee for junior members and they do not pay dues. Junior members, however, do not have the privilege of bringing guests onto the Club premises. If you want your children to have unescorted rights, please submit the Junior Membership Application to the address below.
