Oak Harbor Yacht Club is a boating organization. However, membership is open to non-boaters and boaters alike. Our full range of social activities include burger/potluck Fridays, and cook-your-own chicken/steak Wednesdays. We also enjoy monthly dinner events in our event space which provides a warm and friendly forum for the exchange of boating (and NON-boating) experiences.
The Oak Harbor Yacht Club can accommodate weddings, receptions, family gatherings, holiday parties, change of command and corporate meetings. Membership is not required to rent the Ball Room at the OHYC. We provide a wide array of options for, tables, linens, dishware. Plus, beautiful decor to choose from. We also allow other vendors.

The Sail Fleet hosts year-round racing. The season kicks off with Thursday date night sailing through September and several regattas throughout the rest of the year.
