Reciprocal Information

Reciprocal Clubs

Check the Reciprocal Yacht Clubs page for reciprocal clubs participating in the Yachting Destinations website. This list does not represent all of our current reciprocal clubs but provides extensive information for those that do. We recommend that our members call the club manager for a club they wish to visit to verify permission. Of course, feel free to ask Member Services at PYC for assistance! In a lot of cases, other clubs will welcome visitors even without direct reciprocity. A complete list of reciprocal yacht clubs can be found here or in your roster.


Portland Yacht Club is located at the north end of North Portland Harbor south of Hayden and Tomahawk islands about 104 NM from the mouth of the Columbia River (see map).

Please see our Contact page for contact information and service hours.

Events & Activities

There are a number of events throughout the year from casual dining to BBQs and from Ladies Dinners to our Annual New Year's Eve Gala. Guests are welcome to use the bar and dining facilities at all time and attend most scheduled special events. Dress is generally casual.  Please see our Calendar of Events for upcoming activities.


Reciprocal moorage is provided along the head walk between the finger docks and vacated open slips. Slips have power or water but head walk moorings do not. Moorage is available on a first come, first served basis; no reservations accepted. Guests are welcome to stay free for 3 consecutive nights. There is a $10 per boat fee thereafter.
