The Portland Yacht Club

Commodore’s Welcome:

David Robinson

Greetings to everyone visiting our website! PYC, located in Falmouth, Maine, is the third oldest continuously operating yacht club in the United States. We are proud of our history, energy, and our continuing renewal.

I’d like to share recent news and the success of all the PYC racing teams who participated in the J/24 Nationals. Congratulations to members Carter White and Molly MacMillan White and their crew who took 2nd place out of 39 boats. We are very proud of you and wish you good luck at the Worlds! Congratulations to members Andrew Carey, Stephanie Helms and their crew who placed 26th and member Jess Harris and her crew, who placed 27th.

David Robinson, Commodore


PYC is a welcoming community where members enjoy a variety of boating activities, learn from one another, and cultivate a rich and proud legacy of yachting tradition.


PYC promotes member enjoyment by providing easy access to the water for a variety of boating interests, including racing, cruising, and day trips on large and small yachts.

PYC fosters a strong, friendly, internal community where members at every stage of life can socialize, partake in formal and informal educational opportunities, build skills, and make friends who also love the water.

PYC safeguards the rich and proud legacy of yachting traditions through stewardship, preservation of Club history, and education of youth and adults.

From the Manager’s Desk

Our website aims to provide members and visitors with information about the Club and its activities. We hope this information will help members enhance their enjoyment of boating, dining, educational, and social opportunities here on the shores of Casco Bay. We also hope visitors will learn about PYC and consider becoming a member!
