About TYC

Commodore:  Rene Marques

Tammany Yacht Club is located on the north shore of beautiful Lake Pontchartrain in Slidell, Louisiana.  It was granted a charter on July 25, 1980.  Within a year, it had been welcomed into the Gulf Yachting Association and enjoys full reciprocal arrangements with member clubs along the Gulf coast from Florida to Texas. In the fall of 1990, Tammany Yacht Club moved from its Bayou Liberty Location to its current location at Oak Harbor, Slidell, LA. Tammany Yacht Club strives in its quest for a better understanding of the art and science of yachting as a wholesome sport, the promotion of seamanship, the promotion of boat and yacht racing, and the enjoyment of the fellowship that these activities foster. 

What We Do

Bill Watson Memorial Series – TYC sponsors three Wednesday night racing series, open to members and non-members alike.  These races are designed to appeal to everyone from novice racers to some of the best sailors on the lake.

Club Championship – The TYC club Championship series is open to club members and is held on various weekends throughout the year.  The series determines the TYC champion for the year.

Inter-club Racing – Above and beyond these races are the races open to all GYA members.  TYC sponsors two of these annual regattas, the Two-Against-the-Lake Race and the Single-Handed-Around the Lake Race, as well as co-sponsoring the Lake Pontchartrain Racing Circuit.

Off Shore Racing – If offshore racing is more to your liking, GYA events on the Gulf abound during the racing season.  TYC is proud of the impressive number of wins in these events including a First-in-Fleet and several First-in-Class in the Regatta Al Sol.

Cruising – Each year, TYC’s cruising committee schedules a number of enjoyable boat cruises.  From cruises to local restaurants to coastal cruising on the gulf, these events attract power boaters and sailors alike.  If parading is what you enjoy, TYC co-sponsors and participates in the annual Eden Isles Christmas Boat Parade. 

Social – TYC has a very active calendar which includes many annual theme events such as the Calypso and Shipwreck parties and the Crawfish races and Couchon du Lait. The club is open five days a week and regularly features Thirsty Thursday with Dinner and Once a month Friday Night Steak Night.

GYA Membership – Our Club is a member of the Gulf Yachting Association (GYA), allowing our members to enjoy reciprocal privileges at all GYA clubs around Lake Pontchartrain and along the gulf coast from Texas to Florida.
