We are located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in the Long Beach Harbor.  LBYC is a private club originally established in 1980 for use by its members, their families, and guests.   The purpose of our organization is to encourage the sport of boating, promote the science of seamanship and navigation,  and foster a spirit of cooperation and good fellowship.  We do this through the active participation and sponsorship of cruises, races, sail and boating instruction classes and social
gatherings of our membership.   We welcome as guests the visiting members of other yacht clubs in the Gulf Yachting Association (GYA) as well as members of other yacht clubs throughout the world.  (Guest privileges follow reciprocity rules)
