Based in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, Hood River Yacht Club is a friendly group of sailors and boaters who enjoy sailing, racing, windsurfing, kiteboarding and pretty much anything else you can do on the water. The club helps sponsor a junior program and adult learn-to-sail classes as well as other community events. Here in the Gorge, we enjoy sailing in a wide variety of wind and water conditions, from gentle summer evening breezes to epic nuclear blowouts and everything in between. Bring your foulies and a sense of adventure and come sail with us!

HRYC member Stan Perkins & daughter Kerry earned Best Prepared Yacht  trophy by demonstrating careful, thoughtful, and seamanlike preparation for the race. Perkins and Halliburton double-handed the 2070-mile race from SFO-Hawaii aboard his Santa Cruz 27 Mirage this past July. He said he'd been preparing for this race ever since his daughter was age 4, when she wrote a story about sailing across the ocean with her dad. Come hear how they pulled it off!
