This Saturday, May 9, eight Hudson River Boat & Yacht Club Association (HRBYCA) member boat clubs will open their doors to the community from noon to 3 p.m.

“Our clubs, which span from Raritan Bay to Poughkeepsie, give families a great a way to be on the water, provide critical river access, and offer a pathway to boat ownership.” HRBYCA President Scott Croft said. “There is a spirit of volunteerism as our clubs do most of their own maintenance and upkeep.”

HRBYCA offers affordable options for prospective members who want to try out a club, he said, and many offer associate memberships for people without a boat.

These eight clubs will offer free soda and hot dogs at the Open House Event:

• Chelsea Yacht Club, Chelsea
• Marlboro Yacht Club, Marlboro
• Garrison Yacht Club, Garrison
• Minisceongo Yacht Club, Stony Point
• Hook Mountain Yacht Club, Nyack
• Shattemuc Yacht Club, Ossining
• Ossining Boat & Canoe Club, Ossining
• Yonkers Yacht Club, Yonkers

Stop by and learn more about being a member and what each club offers. Visitors may also visit a boat or yacht club Saturday mornings throughout May, when most clubs have work parties, and staff is are available to answer questions. A list of HRBYCA member clubs is at

All 31 member HRBYCA clubs are open to visits from the public throughout the year. For more information contact Jerry at
