YELP Review: A great little volunteer run yacht club. Very casual, inexpensive; great view of harbor from the club. You don’t need a boat to join, just a willingness to have fun. Volunteers staff the bar, where everyone learns your name, cook dinners now and then, and throw parties and other events. PBYC hosts lots of races, and its members range from serious racers to folks who just like to hang out. Membership is easy to get. Worth checking out if you want to have a place to have fun on and near the ocean!
