Richmond Yacht Club History:
The Richmond Yacht Club (RYC) of Richmond, California, is a competitive and recreational boating club located on the San Pablo
Bay in Northern California. The Richmond Yacht Club was incorporated in 1932 and its clubhouse has been in six different locations
since it was established: 1) Foot of 8th Street (Ellis Landing); 2) Foot of 2nd Street; 3) Bulldog Point (Pt. Potrero); 4)
Richmond City Hall; 5) Canal Street & Cutting Boulevard; 6) Brickyard Cove. The RYC was created under the auspice of forming
an affordable sailing club, and members have made their own boats and sails, built their own club facilities, and facilitated
their own races, earning the reputation of "the sailing-est club on the Bay." The RYC has a "proud tradition of hosting world
class championships as well as a multitude of regattas for Bay Area racers, junior and youth boaters, and RYC members," facilitating
training and outings for youth and providing a full social calendar for its members.
