Our Club


In 1968 a group of 40 friends in the Kingston area came together to found the Kingston Cove Yacht Club to enhance the camaraderie and fellowship among their boating friends. Those 40 charter members put their collective shoulders to the wheel and today, over 50 years later, we have a growing membership of about 150 people.  Although we are an active boating club, we have expanded our focus to include clubhouse based social activities and community service.  You don’t need a boat to join!

The yacht 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. 

The club is open every Friday night for club members to socialize with old friends and meet new ones.  We cruise 10-12 weekends per year to locations ilike Victoria BC, Seattle, Bell Harbor, Pleasant Harbor, the San Juans and many more.  We have a major clubhouse event approximately once per month including Kingston Opening Day of Boating, Commodore’s Ball, Ladies Tea, New Year’s Eve, St. Patty's Day, Christmas Tree Lighting and July 4th Celebration.

The yacht club is also about community service and leadership.  We actively support the Kingston Food Bank, Kingston 4th of July, Kingston Cares Community Meals and Kingston Clean-up.  In addition, many of our members are community leaders outside the yacht club giving of their time and treasure.

The KCYC clubhouse is located at the Port of Kingston. The clubhouse overlooks the Port of Kingston Marina and Park with a beautiful view of Puget Sound from Edmonds to Seattle including Mt. Rainier. We have an approved kitchen, a full bar, dance floor, dinner seating along with a scenic deck and large outdoor gas barbecue.  The club is available for rent by the public and members at a special rate.

KCYC offers reciprocal boaters space at 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 social on Friday evenings from 6 to 9pm.


Benefits of Membership Include....


USE YOUR BOAT MORE OFTEN: Club cruises go to ports throughout the Pacific Northwest several times a year. Travel with fellow boaters, socialize, and swap sea stories...that's why you have a boat, right? 

RECIPROCALS: KCYC has partnered with over 100 other yacht clubs in the Pacific Northwest and around the world. These clubs offer FREE or REDUCED-FEE guest moorage to our boating members. Even if you are "between boats", you can still enjoy the amenities of partner yacht clubs, such as refreshments and fine dining! 

GREAT SOCIAL EVENTS: Socialize at monthly meetings, Friday Nights and  special events, such as St. Patrick's Dinner & Dance, Ladies Tea, potlucks/barbecues, Commodore's Ball, Christmas Boat Parade, New Year's Eve Celebration, and much, much more! 

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: Contribute to our community by participating in fundraising and charity events, such as Christmas Food Baskets, Kingston 4th of July Pancake Feed and Kingston Clean Up day. Our members take pride in their community! 
BOATING SAFETY & EDUCATION: KCYC has active members in the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, US Power Squadron, and Recreational Boating Association of WA. Members are available for boat inspections to keep you current with the latest requirements. 

MAKE NEW FRIENDS: Maybe the best reason to join KCYC is the camaraderie with people who love boating and share the Kingston community spirit. Our members get involved and have lots of fun doing it. Come join the KCYC family. 

RENT THE CLUBHOUSE:  Rental of the clubhouse at significantly reduced rates for your private event.

AFFORDABLE: Both Family and Single Memberships are very affordable and the received benefits are a tremendous value.
