On the Water
Thank you for visiting the redesigned Rainier Yacht Club (RYC) website. Please take a look around!
Back in 2001, my husband and I were asked by our neighbors at the marina to join RYC. We said, “No way, we are not yacht club people.” We’d watched Gilligan’s Island and we figured that yacht clubs had stuffy members like Thurston Howell III. In 2005, we got another boat and neighbors asked us again. This time we said, “Sure, why not? We are going to be out in the sound that weekend anyway.” We went to the event at Blake Island and had a great time. We wrote a check and joined the club. It was the best move we ever made. We’ve made lots of friends in RYC and associated clubs throughout the Puget Sound.
Once a year we get all dressed up and have a formal ball to honor our hardworking commodore. We clean up pretty good. Most of the time you’ll find us in t-shirts and our Keens. We are really just a laid back, fun loving group.
If you think you might like to learn more about RYC, shoot me an email and let’s talk.
