How to Join

20141101_182930PTYC is a fun-loving club with a focus on boating activities, education and water safety seminars, and social events.  The club membership currently consists of about 100 membership families and new members join every year.  Boat ownership is not a prerequisite to joining, nor is mooring your boat in Port Townsend. 

Our members are split 50/50 between sail and power, and moor boats locally in Port Townsend Boat Haven and Point Hudson, Port Hadlock, Port Ludlow, John Wayne Marina, Cape George, and Bridgehaven, with additional members residing up and down the Pacific coast.

Members enjoy friendship, access to local boating knowledge and a wide range of activities, including group cruises.  We welcome new members, visiting boaters via our reciprocal program and community members with an interest in boating.
