Poulsbo Yacht Club was founded in 1956 to promote pleasure boating activities in Puget Sound and currently has more than 425 members, with approximately 50% enjoying power boating and 50% sailors.  PYC is an "equal member" yacht club, in that both husband and wife must join.
Poulsbo Yacht Club is located in Poulsbo, Washington, a small town of roughly 10,000 people with a strong Nordic tradition.  Its charming "small town flavor" is embraced with pride in our club.
Club assets approximate $1.2M in a clubhouse, workshop, uplands, and 23 club-owned slips in the PYC marina. PYC has no debt and long-term maintenance plans, with funding, are in place for the clubhouse, workshop, marina and DNR lease growth. 

PYC members enjoy numerous boating activities, with both sail and power fleet captains organizing approximately six club cruises per year, informal sailboat races, and predicted log races. 

PYC members have the option to participate in numerous club social activities.  Each month, PYC hosts a Potluck/General Meeting and during the warmer months PYC members enjoy a Steak Fry with beautiful views from our expansive deck overlooking the marina.  Other social events and a Commodore's Ball are held each year, with a Junior Officers' Ball every other year. Club members can also enjoy weekly informal get-togethers.  Members may rent the clubhouse for a small fee for private functions.

The PYC marina has 152 open and covered slips ranging in size from 30 to 70 feet. The marina is a condominium Association and many slips are privately owned by members. Poulsbo Yacht Club owns 23 slips of various sizes, which are available for member rental.
