Over the storied 72 year history of the New Orleans Yacht Club, thousands have walked through our doors and helped create one of the most successful yacht clubs on the Gulf Coast. This fine yacht club has an entire spectrum of people supporting the club’s social and sailing programs and who are always looking for new people who are interested in boating, the sport of sailing and of course the grand and legendary parties afterward.
