The Yacht Club was founded in 1990 by members of the South Gulf Cove community. Currently our membership consists of over 386 member households (750 individuals). The Yacht Club's mission is based on, but not limited to the following:
  • To promote boating, recreational and social activities, and fellowship,
  • To participate in greater aspects of boating in the state of Florida,
  • To participate in civic projects which relate to the quality and use of the navigable waters of Charlotte County and surrounding areas.
