Welcome Aboard

Welcome to the home of the Navy Yacht Club of Pensacola, a member of the Gulf Yachting Association who sailed in this year's Bikini. Homeported aboard the Naval Air Station, Pensacola Florida, the club is conveniently located at the mouth of Bayou Grande, just off Pensacola Bay. Unfortunstely, due to COVID-19 restriction aboard the base we have tempoarily suspended meetings aboard the base. Check out the Commodores Announcements in the column to the right for directions to our alternate meeting site.
Club membership is open to all active duty, retired and reserve military personnel from all services, as well as all actively employed civilians of the Department of Defense and their dependents. For more info contact our membership chairman. Our mailing address is

Just a short note to remind everyone that we have our May General Membership Meeting next Thursday, May 6 starting at 1730.  The meeting will again be held at Island Cove Marina, 806 Lakewood Road in Pensacola on the west side of Bayou Chico, north of Barrancas Blvd. We will continue to meet there for the remainder of this year. The only exception will be in July when we will meet the first Wednesday, July 7th, to avoid 4th of July weekend conflicts.

To get there, turn left at the last exit off Barrancas Ave before the Bayou Chico Bridge.  Go north about 4 blocks and you will see the Marina sign on the right.  Park in the upper lot for easy access to the Clubhouse.  

This weekend, we have a three-person team competing in the GYA Opening Regatta Masters Class (Flying Scot) races at St. Andrews Bay Yacht Club.  Lee Borthwick, Buddy Hamilton, and Vice Commodore Mia Ottesen will be sailing our Flying Scot on Saturday and Sunday.  Thanks go out to Dick Piatt for his help in "tuning" the boat to get it ready for the races.  Also, thank you to our Fleet Captain, Mark Smith, for all his work replacing standing rigging, repairing the top plate, and many other hardware and line/sheet/halyard repairs and replacement. 

We are ready to go!
