RRYC was founded in 1936 in Irvington, Virginia, to serve the interests of local pleasure boat owners. Together the first members acquired the present property on Carter’s Creek off the Rappahannock River, just down King Carter Drive from the Tide’s Inn.

Today RRYC is a vibrant and active Club enjoying a resurgence in membership and activities, both on and off the water. Many new fleets and interests of the members have brought our Club into the twenty-first century with burgee flying high.
