Bellevue Yacht Club





 Home Port: Newport Yacht Basin- Bellevue, WA





Founded in 1990, we are one of the premier yacht clubs in the Pacific North West.  With thirteen cruises a year, we are certainly the most active.  Most of our members live on the Eastside, however this is by no means a prerequisite.  If you enjoy boating, are new to boating or just want to find out more, please browse around the site, and don't forget to contact us for more information!

Summer 2014 updateCould we have asked for better weather?  The south sound poker run was a huge hit and could become an annual cruise event.  4th of July Wagon Wheel and lets not forget the "Price Is Right" cruise.  Up next is Brownsville and in October Halloween in Edmonds.BYC Latest

Our annual holiday party was a huge success!  More than half of the club's members showed up ready to eat, drink and be merry. Congratulations to the new bridge officers voted in for 2014 and a big thank-you to the out-going bridge officers of 2013. Happy holidays to everyone from BYC!
The weather for Opening Day had to be the best we've had in years!  We had 11 boats in the BYC section of the boom and we all had a great time. Thank you to those who volunteered to help with "log-boom-dinghy-duty" so that our club could have it's own section on the boom. The races were fun to watch, the parade was great and the sun was that's boating! 
Fall boating with the club has been a lot of fun. We had a great turnouts at both the October and November cruises. Looking forward to seeing decorate BYC boats in the many holiday parades on the water next month.
Summer 2013
The club has been so busy boating that this front page of the site has not been updated in a while.  Of course, our private Facebook page has been filled with stories and photos from everyone's cruising adventures. The club had our annual Wagon Wheel on Andrews Bay, a fun cruise to Port Townsend, an awesome time at Roche Harbor, and, most recently, a fun Italian-themed cruise to Des Moines.
