In 1932 a group of Richmond locals joined forces to form the Richmond Yacht Club. United by a common desire to promote affordable sailing, they built their own boats, sewed their own sails, constructed their own club house, and ran their own races. 80 years later RYC continues these traditions as a volunteer yacht club and has grown into a major force in the Bay Area sailing scene. RYC is a club dedicated to serious sailing while at the same time having tremendous fun. Club members actively race all manner and size of boats--monohulls, multihulls, dinghies and skiffs.
