We don't have to remind you that Perry Yacht Club is a GREAT group of people, but remember our members are also potential customers, referrals and local connections for your business! Many of us think of the club as a weekend home away from home, a welcome respite from every day cares and responsibilities. We are enthusiastic about continuing the tradition of sailing on with the new generation of sailors. Perry Lake has earned a reputation as the best place to sail in the region, and you are part of the reason!

On average we have over 30 boats and crew participating in Commodore’s Cup that is held over two days-this year September 3rd and 4th, 2016.
