|Boats & Yachts:
The Delaware River Yacht Club was organized in 1925 and chartered in 1926, with an original membership of 20. Today it is a family-oriented club offering camaraderie, social functions and boating education, including weekly sailboat races
and "work parties." Participation in the latter is required of all members, and helps reduce operating costs. Floating docks are used for repairs, loading and unloading of boats, while tender operators bring you to and from your boat. Younger members participate in the Sea Scouts, which is part of the Boy Scouts of America's Venturing program for young men and women ages 14 to 20.
The Club is part of the Delaware River Yachtsmen's League (D.R.Y.L.), which was founded in 1914 with five clubs; it now boasts over 5,000 members from 37 Yacht Clubs and Organizations that cover the boating area from the Delaware River in Trenton, N.J. to the Cohansey River in the Delaware Bay, also including the Lagoon View Yacht Club on Barnaget Bay. In addition, the League is affiliated with The National Boating Federation, The Pennsylvania Boating Association, The Chesapeake Bay Yacht Clubs Association and The Boater Voter Coalition.
There are three classes of membership available to new members: active, social and junior. There are also two additional classes for established members. Visit the website to obtain a membership brochure and application.
