2015 Welcome

The Hudson River Boat and Yacht Club Association (HRBYCA) is the advocate for 33 local boat and yacht clubs located from the Raritan Bay, New Jersey to Poughkeepsie, New York. Our goal is to protect the enjoyment of the Hudson River for over 3,000 recreational boating families; and to support local, organized, and affordable boating access. We also ensure that we are in heard in the halls of government when boaters or member clubs are unfairly singled out. We are a strong advocate of boating safety and clean water efforts.

As volunteers manage Hudson River boat clubs, we sometimes don’t have all the knowledge we need to run our organizations. The goal of the HRBYCA is to provide clubs with that knowledge. Challenges with growing club membership, waterfront access, dredging, tax, insurance, environmental and safety issues are just some of the practical issues we focus on.

Beginning in January, our regular general membership meetings take place on the last Tuesday of every other month. We strongly encourage and welcome any recreational boat owner, PWC owner, or paddler to attend our meetings, which offer topics that have an impact your boating.

  • If you’re interested in joining a boat club on the Hudson River and would like more information, please check out our list of member clubs.
  • To stay current of all HRBYCA and river happenings, we strongly urge you to “like” our HRBYCA Facebook page.

Thanks, and I hope to see you on the river and at our meetings.

HRBYCA Board and guests visit the Tappan Zee Bridge construction site

The HRBYCA was invited to see the construction site at the Tappan Zee Bridge last Aug. 22nd. The new restricted boating areas, marked by buoys, was visited along with a trip to Piermont using the new channel markers. This channel offers boaters 4ft. of water from the Piermont landing to Cornetta's docking area. The board would like to thank Brian Conybeare from the TZB Authority, Commodore Ken Fiala from W.I.B.C. for the use of their dock, and a special thanks to Capt. Milo Maturi for the use of his boat.
