A Message from the Commodore


Welcome to Meydenbauer Bay Yacht Club located on the shores of beautiful Lake Washington in Bellevue. Since 1946, MBYC has offered moorage and social and educational activities to its 630+ members. MBYC prides itself on its member participation and ‘can do’ spirit which make us one of the premier Puget Sound yacht clubs. 

MBYC owns or leases nine outstations located on Bainbridge Island, Friday Harbor, Deer Harbor, Salt Spring Island BC, Mill Bay BC, Sidney BC, Port Browning BC and at Port Ludlow. We have reciprocal privileges with approximately 60 other yacht clubs. Our active boating membership ensures that you will run into a friend however far north or south you may travel. 

We offer 7 formal cruises per year, each attended by between 20 and 55 boats as well as numerous social events for both adults and children. Some of these events include weekly dance lessons, formal balls, bingo and bunco nights, engine maintenance classes, children’s holiday parties, the Seafair Special People’s Cruise, book club, crafts groups, field trips, men’s lunches, monthly dinner meetings attended by between 160-250 of our members, and many, many more activities. MBYC has a large and successful predicted log navigation program and a very active youth sail program. Founded over 20 years ago, Youth Sail runs for 10 weeks each summer to teach sailing to area youth using our own large fleet of Optis, V-15’s and Lasers. Youth Sail classes are always fully subscribed and serve more than 300 area youth annually. 

We are family oriented and have several 2nd and 3rd generation members. We are particularly proud that the age range of the membership runs from 21-104 years. The club is well integrated and tends neither young nor old. We also pride ourselves on our active work to integrate our new members into the club so that they may too enjoy the full benefit of all MBYC offers. 

If we can answer any questions, please contact us. We look forward to showing you our beautiful docks, grounds and clubhouse 

Best Regards,
Jim Veres
