We are a private club that welcomes new members. Through volunteerism, we maintain our own docks and upgrade our facilities as necessary for all of our members.

We had a group of seven boats from our club stay at RIYC for two nights. We had an excellent dinner one night at the club. it was excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The launch operators were very nice, especially Todd who was extremely helpful, responsive to our needs, and fun to talk with. The facility itself was very nice. We stayed on moorings just outside the club’s breakwater.I would go back again.

I was at RIYC for their annual Ladies Cup Regatta and found everyone to be friendly, accommodating and welcoming!

We attended the Gaspee Day event last weekend. The RIYC could not have been more welcoming. We will be back

Leah, the launch driver was great: friendly, knowledgable and helpful. We walked through Pawtuxet Village thinking we'd eat dinner at a restaurant but ended up enjoying the hospitality of the yacht club. Tuesday night is race night so they had a buffet in addition to their usual menu. We opted for the buffet and were not disappointed. The cocktails at the bar were generous pours. Highly recommended. The only possible negative is that it lies directly in the flight path of planes landing at T.F. Green Airport. Planes did not land at night and this was not a problem for us (and certainly outside the control of the yachtclub who was there before the airport)!

The dockmaster, Todd, was very nice and helpful. However, the mooring lines were so crusted with barnacles and sea life that we had to try three different moorings before we could find one that was usable.

Excellent facilities, easy walk to town for restaurants, friendly and helpful staff (once you get hold of them). Would be a five star except that I had a devil of a time getting anyone from the club to answer or return calls when I needed some info in advance.

Very friendly helpful people . Great food. Proximity to Providence is wonderful. The launch starts at 9 am.

We had an amazing stay at the RIYC. The members and staff were so friendly; the bathrooms/showers were completely adequate and clean; the town of Pawtucket with nice restaurants and shops was a short walk; the launch service was accessible and easy. We actually left our boat at RIYC while we travelled home for a week. The boat was just where we left it when we returned! We would heartily recommend RIYC.

The staff at RIYC is first rate and very accommodating. We had awesome time there, as the post Gaspee Days Parade party at RIYC was not to be missed.
