The Halifax River Yacht Club is a private club whose members value tradition, camaraderie and lasting friendships in a nautcial setting in downtown Daytona Beach. While chartered as a yacht club, boat ownership is not a requirement for membership. There are regular boating excursions to other yacht clubs and marinas for fun-loving boaters, a full schedule of off-shore races for avid sailors, as well as a nautical setting and lifestyle for non-boaters. Often non-boat owners hitch a ride with other members. HRYC is a member of The Florida Council of Yacht Clubs and Yachting Clubs of America. This allows Club members to enjoy admittance to all clubs belonging to the Yachting Clubs of America, pursuant to their individual restrictions.
