In 1968 a group of 40 friends in the Kingston area thought that it would be great to have a yacht club so they could have more camaraderie and fellowship among their boating friends. Those 40 charter members put their collective shoulders to the wheel and today, over 40 years later, we have a membership of about 130 people dedicated to enhancing the boating experience and enjoying their boating friendships. Our charter members succeeded spectacularly with their yacht club dream.
This club is about having fun and it relies very heavily on its member volunteers to plan and staff the cruises, parties, barbecues and other events. Your interest in boating and having fun is what qualifies you for membership, your volunteer work is what keeps the club going and the friendships you make will be life long. You don’t need a boat to join in on the fun.
The Flag Officers and all the member volunteers at KCYC are dedicated to making all events and cruises memorable and all the members can look forward to a future filled with great club activities. Each year we have a New Year’s Eve Party, Commodore’s Ball, Halloween, St. Patties Day, Opening of Boating Season, 4th of July Celebration and a Christmas tree lighting, and a variety of cruises.
KCYC has a beautiful clubhouse that is one of the newest and finest facilities in the area. The club overlooks the Port of Kingston Marina with a wonderful unobstructed view of Puget Sound from Edmonds to Seattle including Mt. Rainier. We have a commercial kitchen, a full bar and dance floor with dinner seating along with a scenic deck and large outdoor gas barbecue.
KCYC offers reciprocal boaters one hundred feet of the Port of Kingston Marina Guest Dock for reciprocal moorage and we have agreements with virtually all local and many international yacht clubs for reciprocal moorage privileges. A listing of these reciprocal clubs is available on this web site. Reciprocal club members are very welcome to join us at our weekly open bar on Friday evenings from 6 to 9.
It is an honor for me to be Commodore of Kingston Cove Yacht Club. Come and join the fun!!
