Our History


The Southport Yacht Club was founded in 2014 by a group of boaters with the vision of a club centered around just a few basic principles:


  • More time on the water … less time at the dock
  • Plenty of social events
  • Providing boating education and safety to members
  • AND giving back to the community

        Our Mission


        The Mission of the Southport Yacht Club is to encourage and promote all aspects of yachting in the spirit of good sportsmanship and camaraderie.  The Club is committed to creating a Corinthian atmosphere by blending a friendly social environment with a variety of sailing and cruising programs in which members and their families may participate.
