Eugene Yacht Club is a place for boaters of all interests. We are a member-run organization that has been part of the sailing community since 1940. While our name may conjure up visions of blue blazers and ascots, we pride ourselves on being a casual and family-oriented place. Our goal has always been to be a safe, fun, and affordable club on Fern Ridge Reservoir.
EYC’s main purpose is to promote the sport of yachting. One way we do this is by providing opportunities for young people to learn to sail. Each year we offer Sail School, a weeklong overnight sailing camp that provides on and off the water instruction for kids starting at age 10. We follow that up with weekly supervised sailing time. We sponsor a Sea Scout Explorer post and a newly formed high school sailing team. We also provide support for collegiate sailing teams from University of Oregon and Oregon State University.
