This site provides information regarding the Watergate Yacht Club, including our mission statement, board members and planned and past Watergate Yacht Club (WYC) events. If you have suggestions for future events you would like to see added to our calendar, we welcome your input. Just contact any board member with your suggestion, for consideration.
For Watergate Marina boaters who have not yet joined WYC, any board member will be happy to share information regarding the club, and provide you with a membership application. You may also download a WYC membership application, from this page and the Membership page, of this site. We welcome you to join us for Fun on the River!
Our annual WYC Progressive Dock Party has been rescheduled for July 19th! WYC members, please register for the poker hand, in the parking lot of K-dock, prior to the event. Registration begins at 4 p.m. Everyone is invited to join us for the annual WYC Progressive Dock Party. However, you must be a WYC member to play a poker hand.
You never know what you'll experience at the WYC annual Progressive Dock Party! Be sure to join us for Fun on the River. Each dock prepares an appetizer and beverage or dessert, and dock themes/costumes are optional. You are only limited by your imagination! We move from dock to dock, beginning at K-dock, where we sign in, and progressing from A through J docks, spending approximately 20 minutes at each dock. This is always one of our more popular events.
In cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Adopt-a-River program, WYC has adopted a mile of the riverbank one-half mile on each side of the river upstream from the marina. We encourage all WYC members to make the collection of waste and litter for disposal a priority on an ongoing basis, either individually or in groups. Together we can ensure a clean and safe environment for wildlife and boaters alike. You may find additional information on the Adopt-A-River program on the DNR website.
