On The Water
Houston Yacht Club offers many ways to enjoy getting out on the water! No matter what kind of watercraft you have, we can help you enjoy it to the fullest. No boat? No problem! There is a Charter Fleet with several sail boats available to rent on a half day or full day basis. Interested in crewing, download our HYC app and get connected with boaters needing crew. Kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Boards are also available to rent. If you are a racer, HYC hosts many Regattas throughout the year. Our goal is to get members of all ages and boating interests out on the water as often as possible.
If you are just getting started, we offer sailing lessons for adult men and women. We have an active Women's Sailing Association that offers clinics throughout the year along with the Windward Bound camp in early June for women sailors of all levels including beginners. The Youth Sailing Program is a year round program with several camps during the summer. Our Nautical Education program is for every level of experience. You will find many members who will gladly assist you in improving your boating skills
Our Cruising program for both powerboats and sailboats has several scheduled trips throughout the year to destinations in the area including Moody Gardens and Allen's Landing. HYC is a great place for those that like to fish as you are minutes from several fishing locations on the bay. You can also fish from the club North Jetty in the calmer waters of Woosie bay. We have social programs associated with several of our organized On the Water activities that will enhance your experience and help you meet new friends.
