Experience the Pontchartrain Yacht Club in Mandeville
Situated on a three-acre waterfront site adjacent to the Mandeville Harbor and boat launch, Pontchartrain Yacht Club is located in Mandeville’s historic lakeshore district. Pontchartrain Yacht Club, founded in 1967, is a family friendly sailing and social club. The grounds offer an unobstructed view of Lake Pontchartrain, and the launch area enables sailors to be sailing in open water in less than five minutes. PYC is a member of both of the Gulf Yachting Association and the United States Sailing Association.
Our beautiful front lawn has a children’s playground set just outside the swimming pool. Nearby in the open yard children can be seen playing kickball on Sundays with parents and other members enjoying the views from the balcony above. We have a fire pit where we have an occasional bonfire, but it is center of attention on New Year’s Eve when the club cochon du lait is tended from the early morning hours throughout the day until the pork is ready to eat!
We have several areas for trailer boat storage and a hoist for lifting sailboats into and out of Bayou Castine within view of Lake Pontchartrain.
We host many social events including weddings, business luncheons, receptions, crawfish or shrimp boils, Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs and more. Our inside Regatta Room and our front lawn are popular spots for many events. We even host events under the clubhouse where there is nearly always a cooling breeze.
