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 Club is a group of people who help in the community and take care of themselves. They have many races: Club Races, Lighthouse Races, and Port Mansfield Regatta. The Club also does social events. They also organize several social events weekly throughout the year. The club participates in Oysterfest, 4th of July, and Christmas celebrations with floats and lighted boat parades.
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.
