On May 6, 1986, the Point Yacht Club was formed by boating enthusiasts whose goals were to socialize and enjoy activities on the water.  Having fun was one of the top priorities of the club members, along with increasing the membership and becoming a member of the Gulf Yachting Association (GYA).

In 1987 plans were made for the very first Lost Bay Regatta, Point Yacht Club hosted the first annual Lighted Christmas Boat Parade, and efforts to search for a “place to call home” began in earnest.

In 1991, the Point Yacht Club found its home in a rental house near Bear Point Marina.  The club remained at this location until 1997, when at this time they entered into a lease agreement with Pirate’s Cove.

The raft-ups continued as did the races and the parties after the races. What started as a small group of dedicated boaters has grown into a large group of fun-loving, environmentally conscious members who believe they have found a permanent address on the north side of Arnica Bay at 6606 County Road 95, Josephine, Alabama.  The property was purchased in 2014 and lies adjacent to Pirate’s Cove; it was once owned by the Muellers.  The old bath-house was saved and converted to a club house with an immense deck attached to the front. With 100 feet of waterfront, the view from the deck is breathtaking!

The Point Yacht Club (PtYC) is committed to giving its members a reason to get out on the water. Whether its regattas or raft-ups, members enjoy the opportunity of spending time with people who find true happiness on the water. As a member of the Gulf Yachting Association (GYA) PtYC invites crews from area clubs to participate in regattas, raft-ups, and parties.

The Point Yacht Club sponsors a number of Races and Regattas throughout the year. They range in size from small club affairs such as:

  • Wheelbarrow
  • Lillian Bridge
  • Cheeseburger Races
  • Fast Women Regatta (GYA)
  • to one of the premier yachting events on the Gulf Coast, the Lost Bay Regatta (GYA).
