Welcome Aboard 2019


Welcome to the Port Townsend Yacht Club (PTYC).  We are located at 2503 Washington Street in the picturesque Victorian seaport of Port Townsend, Washington – the gateway to cruising in Puget Sound from Olympia and Seattle, to the San Juan Islands, the Canadian Gulf Islands, and north through the Inside Passage to Alaska.  From here you can boat to some of the most spectacular places in the world.  Our club is active throughout the year with cruises, seminars, socials and meetings.  We welcome new members, visiting boaters via our reciprocal program, and community members with an interest in boating.  Enjoy our website!
