Our Mission
To be an active community yacht club supporting recreational boating activities in the Rockland area.

Our Activities

Located in the Harbormaster’s Building on the Rockland waterfront, RYC hosts a full range of activities both on the water and on land.

  • Cruising Camaraderie

    An exciting cruising event calendar offers opportunities for club members to enjoy camaraderie on the water from the Ice Breaker weekend in June through Labor Day, in Penobscot Bay and beyond. Each cruising event is hosted by a volunteer member who selects the destination and plans the events.  

  • Racing Competition

    The Racing Calendar features The Tuesday Night “Round-the-Buoy” Harbor races from June through September. Each evening’s racing is followed by a social gathering at the RYC Club house. In addition, one and two-day weekend races from June through September broaden the competition to include sailors from regional yacht clubs.

  • Social Fellowship

    Social activities bring members together year around. Fund-raisers, pot luck dinners, and casual business meetings augment informal post-race, Friday night, and rainy day gatherings. Featured events are the Lobster Picnic in September and the Holiday party in December.
