Rio Grande Yacht Club 2023 Calendar of Events

Hello all interested Sailors. The RGYC celebrates 63 years of sailing on Elephant Butte Lake

this year. Over that time we have enjoyed social events, sailing seminars, sailboat racing and

youth sailing programs just to name a few things we are involved in. Covid hit us hard but we are again out enjoying our lake and hope for better things this year. Please review the calendar below and make commitments to getting back in the groove with you friends, family and fellow Club members. We will continue to call our Skippers meeting at our Mast Up Storage facility around 10:00am with plans to be on the water by 12 noon until around 4:00pm. These events are open to all interested persons including children with little or no sailing experience necessary and we will provide life jackets if you need one. The Club purchases a Special Use Permit from the State Parks which is a requirement for the RGYC liability insurance.


Please come out and give us a try this year. At Present all Events are on the Third Saturday Each Month Unless Otherwise Posted.
