Who they are

The Rockport Yacht Club is a dynamic non-profit organization dedicated to realizing the social and nautical potential of its members.

Vision 

is to have the Rockport Yacht Club recognized

as a socially- and nautically-connected, valued community member. 

Mission 

shall be to serve the interests of its members by:

  • Promoting water activities for both youth and adults.
  • Providing a suitable facility whereby members are able to gather in a social atmosphere.
  • Cultivating excellent community relations
  • Honoring the historic legacy of our club.

Purpose 

is to foster positive behaviors while networking

within the nautical community.

In a bold move, the Rockport Sailing Club decided in 1993 to change its name to Rockport Yacht Club. They felt this was an opportunity for them not only to welcome those who enjoy boating and water sports but also sailboats themselves. The club is now for people who sail, powerboat, or do not boat. This organization is both a Texas chartered non-profit corporation and serves the sailing needs of the Texas Gulf Coast. These include Rockport and Coastal Bend. The club has bylaws that define its purpose and structure.

The current Clubhouse was purchased in 1984 and has gone through numerous changes. Expansion and remodeling were completed in mid 2003, and provided us with the wonderful facility we have today. The damage resulting from hurricane Harvey has been repaired. Our clubhouse can be rented for business or social events: use the “Clubhouse” tab to fill out a request for a reservation.
