Welcome to the Bay-Waveland Yacht Club, founded in 1896.

In 1901 BWYC became a charter member of the Southern Gulf Coast Yachting Association, and admitted to Gulf Yachting Association in 1922. Club Members are active regionally and nationally as both competitors and administrators. Club Members are proud to be part of the long tradition of yachting on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. BWYC is a private club for members and their guests. BWYC members have reciprocal membership privileges at most other GYA-member yacht clubs and many yacht clubs throughout the United States.
