Pontchartrain Yacht Club Membership

Although the club is dedicated to all aspects of yachting, Pontchartrain Yacht Club has a long tradition of competitive racing. The club is home to several nationally and regionally ranked sailors. The club’s sailing instruction programs introduce sailors both young and old to the pleasures of sailing. We have a diverse membership base, with the majority of members owning boats. Those that do not are encouraged to crew on other’s boats. The club also holds many social events for members to enjoy throughout the year ranging from casual grill evenings to a black-tie Commodore’s Ball. The club also hosts regional and national regattas that combine the best of sailing and socializing into one weekend. Our original clubhouse sustained extensive damage from hurricanes Katrina and Rita and sadly had to be torn down. We have thankfully completed the construction of our new clubhouse and enjoy breathtaking views from our elevated position. We also offer a banquet room for rental of which our members receive a discount.
