Tammany Yacht Club (TYC), is a family-oriented organization and is focused on boating of all types, of course, but also has a busy social calendar with many activities, parties, and get-togethers. Cruising, sailing, and RV trips are just a few of the outdoor activities you can enjoy. Indoor functions include the Commodore’s Ball, New Year’s Eve Gala, Valentine’s Day Party, LSU and Saints football games, and musical events. Our Honorary Life Member, Ronnie Kole, is an internationally known pianist, recently played a concert exclusively for Club members!
You do not have to have a powerboat, a sailboat, a rowboat, or any boat to belong to Tammany Yacht Club.
For those interested in boating, there are many events for both power and sail. TYC has both a Spring and Fall series of Wednesday night sailboat races where anyone can participate. Sailors also participate in other yacht club races sponsored by the Gulf Yachting Association. Cruises for power and sail are scheduled. TYC has an excellent Juniors Sailing program every summer – three two-week sessions start in early June.
Tammany Yacht Club is a great place to meet new friends or invite old friends to be your guests. Our well-appointed Club House at 1196 Harbor Drive in Slidell, LA offers a beautiful view of the harbor. You can enjoy the sunset from our outdoor porch where smoking is permitted. TYC has a well-stocked bar offering drinks at member prices. Your second drink is free on Thursday and Saturday. We offer Friday Night Dinners each week, with a Steak or Fish Dinner the last Friday of each month. You may, as a member, have the Club available without a rental charge. Check our website at www.tammanyyachtclub.org under Event Rental for availability.
Becoming a member of Tammany Yacht Club is only part of the story. You are also joining the Gulf Yachting Association (GYA) which offers reciprocity from more than 30 yacht clubs spanning from St. Petersburg, FL, through Jackson, MS, and all along the gulf coast, including Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Charles, and into Houston, and further. If you are a boater, most GYA clubs will provide dockage at less than marina rates with a reservation. The clubs on the coast will welcome you with or without a boat. TYC is also a member of the Register of American Yacht Clubs. Most of the clubs listed will honor a member of TYC. A copy of the Register of American Yacht Clubs is available for anyone wishing to make a trip by land, sea, or air to check on whether they will permit you to visit their club.
Joining Tammany Yacht Club could be the start of the most fun you’ve ever had. TYC monthly dues are $75. The initiation fee is $350. Active membership will give you voting rights at TYC as well as privileges at other GYA clubs. Non-resident membership dues are only $100 a year.
