Welcome to the Bellingham Yacht Club, established in February of 1925. Located on Bellingham Bay, at 2625 South Harbor Loop, in beautiful Bellingham, WA, we are proud to be Bellingham’s oldest yacht club. At about 370 members strong, we are an all volunteer club that is active in all aspects of boating: safety & education, cruising, racing, social and youth programs.

Guests, please browse our website for more information on our history, current events and activities. We welcome new member applications. Click here for more information.
