Oregon Sailing Clubs
Columbia River Yacht Club (CRYC) is the premier powerboat yacht club in the Portland Metro Area. Our casual atmosphere focuses on spirited fun for individuals and families who enjoy the cruising lifestyle. There are multiple opportunities to experience the numerous amenities that CRYC has to offer.
The Nationally known EYC, fifteen miles west from downtown Eugene Oregon, has a long history of supporting all aspects of sailing, maintains a Sailing School for beginners through advanced racing, and sponsors National Class racing. The excellent wind and water conditions, the lack of current and commercial boat traffic, and the size and shape of Fern Ridge Lake allow the use of the standard Olympic circle racing course. This and the availability of camping on the grounds make EYC an ideal place for regattas and other organized sailing events.
Hayden Island Yacht Club is widely recognized as the premier cruising club in the Portland Oregon area. We maintain a balanced mix of fun, light hearted and engaged members who participate in social cruising activities.
Based in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, Hood River Yacht Club is a friendly group of sailors and boaters who enjoy sailing, racing, windsurfing, kiteboarding and pretty much anything else you can do on the water. The club helps sponsor a junior program and adult learn-to-sail classes as well as other community events. Here in the Gorge, we enjoy sailing in a wide variety of wind and water conditions, from gentle summer evening breezes to epic nuclear blowouts and everything in between.
KLAMATH YACHT CLUB is located on the shore of Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon’s largest. Upper Klamath Lake boasts a beautiful mountain setting, but the nearby low hillsides channel the winds for fairly steady sailing conditions. Average wind speeds of 8-15 knots make Upper Klamath Lake a great place to sail and race.
KLAMATH YACHT CLUB is home to keelboats, catamarans, trimarans, Walker Bay dinghies, centerboards, sailboards and powerboats. The fifty square miles of water offer more than enough sailing room. From anywhere on the lake, you can fish, watch eagles and pelicans, spend the entire day sailing and return to home port or anchor in a protected bay for overnight camping.
Portland Yacht Club Located on Marine Drive, PYC has a commanding view of the eastern entrance to North Portland Harbor, on the inside of Hayden and Tomahawk Islands. Our riverfront property reaches a half-mile downstream from the clubhouse, and provides moorage for two-thirds of the club’s 260 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.
RCYC is one of the oldest and largest yachts clubs in the Portland area, tracing its beginnings to 1932. Our yacht club facilities, just east of 33rd Avenue at 3737 NE Marine Drive, offers members a gated parking lot, a roomy club house and reasonable moorage rates.
We offer organized programs appealing to a wide variety of boaters modern and secure moorage and access to a clubhouse on the water the camaraderie of others with similar boating interest. Our moorage has space for over 130 boats and members regularly get together to work on upgrades such as our recently added shower facilities. Work parties are a club tradition and give members a sense of pride in the club’s amenities.
The Triton Yacht Club is a Casual Community of Sailors Sharing Friendship, the Corinthian Spirit, and providing Racing and Non-racing Activities.
Triton hosts many activities in the form of regattas, cruising, club and fleet racing, and community gatherings. Triton’s flagship regatta is the Emerald Cup Regatta held annually in early summer.
Willamette Sailing Club is located on the banks of the Willamette River, approximately 5 minutes South of downtown Portland. It is the only small boat sailing club in Portland, and is dedicated to dinghy (non-keelboats under 20 feet) sailing and racing. The club has over 200 members, and hosts numerous activities throughout the year.
The WSC membership is comprised of a wide range of sailing enthusiasts. We have many members who primarily are interested in racing (from US Olympic team members to their first year racing a sailboat), members that just want a place to keep and launch their boat for day sailing, and some who just want a place to store their boat and enjoy the social aspects of the club. The club hosts weekly races from Feb. to Nov., holds racing clinics, organizes social events, sponsors several regattas each year, and provides a great opportunity to keep a boat on the river to enjoy evening and weekend sailing.
