Where is RHYC?

While our heritage lives on in Roche Harbor, San Juan Island, where we maintain our primary outstation; we focus on our monthly cruises and events, which are the heart and soul of the club's purpose. In addition to Roche Harbor, we maintain Outstations at Kingston, Dock Street in Tacoma, Fisherman's Bay on Lopez Island, and May, June, July, August, and September for Summer use at Port Ludlow and Bremerton. We also have reciprocal agreements with over 80 other yacht clubs.
