NEW MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION (Membership Application Form)
The Pontchartrain Yacht Club, founded in 1967, is a member of the Gulf Yachting Association and the United States Sailing Association. Situated on a three-acre waterfront site, Pontchartrain Yacht Club is located in Mandeville’s historic lakeshore district. The grounds offer an unobstructed view of Lake Pontchartrain. Cast off from the launch area and you are sailing in open waters in less than five minutes. Although the club is dedicated to all aspects of yachting, Pontchartrain Yacht Club has a long tradition of competitive racing. The club is home to several nationally and regionally ranked sailors. The club’s sailing instruction programs introduce sailors both young and old to the pleasures of sailing. Please contact the office manager if you are interested in the junior sailing camp offered each summer. We have a diverse membership base, with the majority of members owning boats. Those that do not are encouraged to crew on other’s boats. The club also holds many social events for members to enjoy throughout the year ranging from casual grill evenings to a black tie Commodore’s Ball. The club also
hosts regional and national regattas that combine the best of sailing and socializing into one weekend. Our original club house sustained extensive damage from hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and sadly had to be torn down. We have thankfully completed the construction on our new clubhouse and enjoy breathtaking views from our elevated position. We also offer a banquet room for rental of which our members receive a discount. If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by and take a tour, or call the Pontchartrain Yacht Club at (985) 626-3192. Office hours are from 8:30 – 4:00 Tuesday through Friday.
