I am not a member of this yacht club but I did help co-host a wedding shower in the downstairs area. The view is amazing and it's an excellent place to host a shower or any other sort of outdoor gathering. We had a lot of fun and the staff was beyond helpful (even though they didn't have to be because technically, downstairs is on your own). The downstairs area is large with plenty of available seating and room.


Love the crab claws and always grab a pound or two when we come to the club! My girls love the deserts and the bread pudding is wonderful!

Hard to review. This place is members only. Read that here because no one tells you this anywhere else. I called ahead for a reservation and they told me I didn't need one because they weren't that busy and hung up the phone! I got there and walked into the dining area and waited 5 minutes until anyone came to the hostess stand. Then they told me I could sit where ever I wanted. We sat down and were not waited on for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes we were asked what we wanted to drink and ordered our drinks. It was then we were asked for "our number." I told her, "I don't have a number" and she said, "oh ok" and walked away. Then she came back and informed me it was members only but that they would let me eat there tonight as a guest. After that the service was noticeably better than it was before. It seemed that by being there as a possible new member they were willing to treat me better. Service from that point forward was excellent. The food was very good, don't know if I'll be back again as I guess I'll need to be invited but the food my wife and I ordered really was great! Prices were OK for a members only club but I don't think I'd want to eat here all the time. Would like to go back and try the fried food, it seems it may be their specialty...

Prime rib was perfect. Cooked just like Plug ordered. Excellent flavor all through the meat. Baked potato was right on the money. Hot and not to hard. A+ meal. improving. Service was excellent. Came out fresh and served with a smile

Food is improving. Service a little faster. The food have more seasoning and the salads have a nice presentations. The nightly specials are unique. Salmon, redfish and grouper dishes have been superb. Chicken piccata is always good. Chicken is always moist. The vegetables seasoning are full of flavor and very fresh.

Food is improving. Good flavor. Server Ayoe was super. Service was quick. Veggies a little to desire. Love this place.

Great food and service. Seasoned just right. Fish was fresh not frozen. Prime rib just right temperature and flavoring.

I saw a review so decided to post. FYC IS members-only, but let me assure you cash talks, especially at the bar. I use my (dead) Dad's number (5 digits, but start with a zero) but pay cash. The bar won't even ask for a number. Monday is pot-luck. Bring a dish - everyone does - and watch the sunset. Tuesdays are free taco nights is you arrive early enough. The kitchen is closed Mon and Tue. I am very anti-"white fish" which just means frozen Vietnamese stuff and FYC serves an awful lot of the stuff. To me, the food, except for the flounder, is not memorable. Neither is the service. Last month a waitress dropped a tray with two filled water glasses on me! I did get an apology and ONE cloth napkin. But, the bar and patio are way cool and the views are lovely. Membership is pretty cheap - about $50 a month - and you get access to use their small fleet of sailboats. Except for use of the boats I have given you the secret to Club, but don't tell anyone....

Daddy kept a boat here so I grew up eating the fried crab claws. But after going back I found out they really are the BEST! You can eat a whole pound of them, noooooo problem. As an appetizer I recommend captains wafers with butter.

New Fairhope Yacht Club should be completed early this summer

yacht club fairhope

FAIRHOPE, Ala. — Sunset celebrations and pool parties will soon be featured attractions at the new Fairhope Yacht Club, expected for completion by early summer, according to a news release. The old facility was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

“We’ve had our members pull together to rebuild the FYC,” said Tommy Yeager, lifelong member and former commodore at the club. “As a sailor, the club is a part of my life as it is for the other members. This landmark is definitely being rebuilt due to popular demand by the town.”

Features of the new building include an improved clubhouse and installation of a swimming pool, the first in club history. The clubhouse, designed to withstand 140 mile-per-hour winds, will consist of a 10,000-square-foot interior with an additional 5,000 square feet of an elevated exterior porch.

After experiencing an extensive amount of damage from the hurricane, the yacht club is taking precautions by rebuilding with BluWood, a termite, mold, mildew and fungus-resistant lumber manufactured by Edgefield Lumber Co. in Loxley.

“While the exterior of the club is a concrete structure, we chose to frame the interior walls with BluWood because of its resistance to mold and mildew damage,” said George Roberds, head of the FYC building committee. “The club experiences a great amount of moisture and humidity from Mobile Bay, and the walls are one of the most exposed areas of the building.”

Since its opening in 1942, the FYC has offered a variety of sailboat races and social events. Last weekend, the club was host for the 50th anniversary Dauphin Island Race.

After its completion, the club’s membership is expected to grow during the next year because of the interest shown in the new pool by younger families, Yeager said.

“This beautiful building will bring in a new generation of sailors and help carry the FYC into the next century,” he said. “It provides a refuge for the members to escape the realities of the world. I, as well as many of us, can’t wait to step into the new club, see friendly faces, and most importantly, sail Mobile Bay.”

Customer Ratings and Reviews

Tons of hospitality from one of the Gulf Coast's best yacht clubs.

Excellent lettuce wrap

We had our wedding here and though they've had some recent turn over Jodi and Matthew made our wedding day awesome. I really recommend the ballroom with the draping -- it came out beautifully and was perfect for 50-75 person wedding. Plus it was much less expensive then anywhere else!

My organization met there since some of our members belong to the Club. The lunch was outstanding! Kudos to the present chef. ⭐️The service was excellent as well. And the dessert Devine! 👏

There are three classes used for instruction at FYC.

The Optimist is a small sailboat designed for learning to sail and raced until a sailor reaches their 13th birthday.  It is a singlehanded boat. The Optimist fleet learns points of sail, how to determine wind direction, sailing terminology and on the water safety. Children between the ages of 7-12 weighing up to 125 lbs. should register for this fleet.

The C420 is the boat used for high school and college sailing.  It is a double handed boat with a mainsail and a jib.  The 420 fleet will learn weather basics, on the water safety, points of sail and sail trim.  In addition, the 420 sailor will learn how to work in a skipper/crew team.  Sailors over 12 years old and over 105 lbs should register for this fleet.

The Feva is an up and coming youth class boat sailed double handed like a 420.

Children ages 5-7

Our Bay Buddies program is designed to introduce our smallest sailors to the yacht club, the beach, and sailing in a positive, playful environment.  Bay Buddies will swim, play beach games, throw cast nets, go for sailboat and powerboat rides with counselors while learning about our bay and all it has to offer.

Things to Do

Music and concerts, music and concerts | what to know if you’re headed to the minnesota yacht club festival, gwen stefani, alanis morissette and red hot chili peppers are headlining.

A stage and bleachers next to a river.

Headlined by Gwen Stefani, Alanis Morissette and Red Hot Chili Peppers, the festival (which despite its name has nothing to do with yacht rock) is promoted by C3 Presents, an Austin, Texas, company that’s also behind Austin City Limits Music Festival, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience and the modern-day Lollapalooza. C3 was the largest independent promoter in the world until Live Nation bought a controlling stake in the company in 2014.

Organizers expect to attract more than 30,000 concertgoers each day.

While the Irish Fair of Minnesota calls Harriet Island home each August, music festivals have had a rough go on the site. The original Lollapalooza (back when it was a traveling festival) landed on the site in 1991, 1992 and 1994, but flooding forced the fest to move to the late St. Paul Civic Center in 1993.

Live Nation attempted to establish a new annual event, the River’s Edge Music Festival, in 2012. Despite big-name headliners Tool and the Dave Matthews Band, the festival didn’t attract enough paying customers to convince the concert promoting giant to return for a second year.

Here’s what folks headed to the Minnesota Yacht Club Festival need to know:

As of Wednesday afternoon, tickets were still available at a number of price points, starting at $135 for one day general admission (or $255 for two days) all the way up to platinum tickets for $925 ($1,395 for two days), which include a number of perks including free food and drinks, front-of-stage viewing and access to an air-conditioned lounge. See minnesotayachtclubfestival.com for details.

Many of the general admission and general admission plus tickets are sold out, but there are verified resale tickets available, some at lower prices than face value.

Getting there

There are two entrances to the festival. The main entrance is at Harriet Island Boulevard and South Wabasha Street, while the west entrance is on West Water Street between Bidwell Street and Plato Boulevard.

There is no on-site parking at the festival, but its website lists numerous downtown St. Paul parking lots that are a 10- to 16-minute walk from the site. Several Metro Transit buses stop a half-mile from Harriet Island. The rideshare drop off is at 49 E. Fillmore Ave. The festival promises “ample bike parking” located near the two entrances.

What is allowed on site

Feel free to bring: Small clutch purses and fanny packs (6” x 9” or smaller) with no more than one pocket, all other bags must be clear and smaller than 12” x 6” x 12”, empty hydration packs and reusable water bottles, strollers, frisbees, binoculars, blankets, basic cameras (no detachable lenses or other accessories), sunscreen in non-aerosol containers (3.4 ounces or less), personal-sized hand sanitizer and factory sealed Naloxone/Narcan kits.

What isn’t allowed

Pretty much everything you would think, including outside food and beverage, coolers, aerosol containers, umbrellas, chairs, wagons, skateboards, drones, fireworks and illegal substances.

Concertgoers must wear securely fastened wristbands that are available at the box office. Wristbands can be activated online to add an emergency contact and to use for cashless transactions (with a pin number). Wristbands that are damaged, lost or stolen can be replaced by the original purchaser one time only for $20. Patrons can leave and reenter at will up until 7 p.m. each day.

There is a guest services tent that has earplugs and a lost and found. Free hydration stations are located throughout the site. Lockers are available to rent for $25 each day or $48.50 for both.

Who is playing

Gwen Stefani sings on stage flanked by two dancers.

Doors open at 12:30 p.m. There are two stages, with staggered performances that do not overlap.

Friday’s schedule includes: Harbor and Home (12:45-1:15 p.m.), Gully Boys (1:15-2), Michigander (2-2:45), Morgan Wade (2:45-3:45), Durry (3:45-4:45), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts (4:45-5:45), The Head and the Heart (5:45-6:45), Gwen Stefani (6:45-8), the Black Crowes (8-9) and Alanis Morissette (9-10:30).

Festival, ahoy! A dozen things to know about St. Paul's Minnesota Yacht Club

I t's the biggest music festival launched in the Twin Cities in 12 years. It's expecting more than 30,000 musicheads per day. And it's being produced by the same company that puts on Lollapalooza and the Austin City Limits fests.

There's a lot to learn about the Minnesota Yacht Club — especially for deprived Twin Cities music lovers who haven't been to a big, nationally promoted festival like this since Live Nation's ill-fated River's Edge Music Festival on the same site in 2012.

With its inaugural voyage scheduled Friday and Saturday at Harriet Island Regional Park in St. Paul, the river-themed event features a Gen-X-nostalgic all-rock lineup led by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alanis Morissette, Gwen Stefani, Black Crowes, the Offspring, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, the Hold Steady and a dozen more acts. New Orleans' soul-funk troupe Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue are the only non-rock act on the bill, and they actually rock harder than most of them.

Here are some pointers, talking points and pointed opinions going into this weekend's mega-bash.

1. Saturday's single-day tickets are sold out. Even though they just played in town last year , the Chili Peppers' day as headliners quickly proved more popular than Morissette's. However, two-day general admission festival passes (now $255) and one-day Friday tickets ($135) were still available at press time via minnesotayachtclub.com .

A profits-generating trademark of promoter C3 Presents and other big festivals, there's also a wide array of VIP, platinum and "GA+" options, ranging from $285-$925 for single-day and $255-$1,395 for two-day. Those priciest options come with things like front-of-stage viewing access, express entry, lounges, free booze and back rubs from St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter. Or maybe we read that latter item wrong?

2. No, it's not a "yacht rock" festival. There actually has been a lot of confusion about this. The event's name is simply a fun spin on its riverside location and the relative irony of someone having a yacht in Minnesota. It has nothing to do with the genre of music associated with breezy and cheesy '70s-'80s hitmakers like Toto, Seals & Crofts and Christopher Cross. How fun would it have been to see one of those acts sandwiched between the Hold Steady and Offspring, though?

3. Boats actually are part of the experience. "Riverboat VIP" ticket holders ($825) can lounge in air-conditioning on the Jonathan Padelford and even take a 60-minute cruise on the paddleboat during the fest. Why anyone would want to go to a music fest to set sail for South St. Paul, we're not sure, but it's a unique idea for a festival.

4. The company behind it is in the festival business. C3 got its start with the hugely successful Austin City Limits Music Festival in the early 2000s before turning Lollapalooza into a one-weekend Chicago event. Live Nation bought a 51% stake in the company in 2014 but mostly leaves C3 to do its own thing when it comes to festivals. Other fests in its portfolio include Boston Calling, Atlanta's Shaky Knees and New York's Governors Ball — all steeped in unique branding and preparations for each city.

"We've been talking to the city well over a year now and working with them on the logistical plans," C3 promoter Tim Sweetwood said of MYC.

5. There will be only two stages (and no overlapping performances). While many festivals require fans to make tough decisions and Iditarod-like treks between competing stages — OK, maybe that's being a little dramatic — the setup at MYC in its first year features just two stages with alternating music that never runs concurrently. Dubbed the Skipper Stage and Crow's Nest Stage, they are only about a quarter-mile apart, too.

6. Gwen Stefani's appearance is the rarest among the top names. Last seen in town making a surprise appearance with husband Blake Shelton at the TC Summer Jam in 2022 , the former No Doubt singer and ex-coach on NBC's "The Voice" has not been performing a lot of late; just a handful of fly-in gigs this summer.

In the solo gigs she has done in 2024, Stefani has been revisiting many songs from No Doubt (with whom she reunited at Coachella fest in April ), including "Don't Speak," "Just a Girl" and "Hella Good."

7. The lineup isn't entirely a nostalgia trip. All these aforementioned acts make it look exclusively like a '90s and early '00s throwback fest, but there are actually modern stars and buzzmakers on the lineup.

Texas slinger Gary Clark Jr. has been the most thrilling blues-rock guitarist on tour over the past decade . Harmonious Seattle rockers the Head and the Heart have racked up a swath of radio hits and TV/film placement with songs like "Lost in My Mind." Twangy singer Morgan Wade has made a couple of well-reviewed records with Jason Isbell's guitarist Sadler Vaden as her producer. Indie-rocker Michigander is a critical favorite.

The Twin Cities' own pop-rock darlings Hippo Campus have become a big draw , too, recently playing New York's Governors Ball festival and selling out the Armory in Minneapolis.

8. There's good local representation. In addition to Hippo Campus, we'll see hard-charging local faves Gully Boys help kick off the fest Friday ahead of viral sensations Durry . On Saturday, fuzz-rocky kids Bugsy play before a fun afternoon twofer with Soul Asylum and the semi-local Hold Steady. As rock-only lineups go — musical diversity is not Yacht Club's strong suit — these are some of the state's most relevant acts present or past playing live in 2024.

9. The list of items you're allowed to bring in is short. Leave the chairs, coolers and umbrellas at home. Only small fanny packs, clutch purses, emptied hydration packs or small clear bags are allowed in. Other permissible items include: phones, baby strollers, blankets/towels, binoculars, reusable water bottles, non-aerosol sunscreen (3.4 ounce max) and Frisbees. For our sake, though, please don't bring any Frisbees.

10. There's a longer list of alternative transportation options. Coming from Austin, Texas, a city with notorious traffic problems, C3 makes a point of encouraging biking, ride-sharing and public transit options at all its festivals.

There's a designated rideshare dropoff site (Uber, Lyft, taxi) near the Wabasha Street entrance at 49 E. Fillmore Av. Bike lots are located at both that entrance and the second set of gates along W. Water Street (bring your own lock). For light rail, the Green Line's Central Station is a half-mile walk away. Ample public bus route stops also can be mapped out via metrotransit.org .

11. Harriet Island isn't really an island, and it isn't all that hard to get to. You wouldn't know it from the maps on the festival's website — or if you're one of those uppity Minneapolitans who never visit the other Twin City — but you can approach the park from the southwest side of the river as well as the downtown side. There are assorted parking options over there, too.

That said, the 15- to 20-minute walk across the Wabasha Street Bridge from downtown parking sites can be quite lovely if it's not sweltering heat. You can handle it, Minneapolis peeps.

12. This is just a start. "It's sort of a slow burn to start," C3′s Sweetwood said, promising expansion in the years to come. "We'll try to give it a little more color and better branding, the kind of things we have a good feel for at C3, being primarily a festival producer."

Friday lineup (in order, 12:45-10:30 p.m.): Harbor and Home, Gully Boys, Michigander, Morgan Wade, Durry, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, the Head and the Heart, Gwen Stefani, Black Crowes, Alanis Morissette.

Saturday (1-10:30 p.m.): Nico Vega, Bugsy, Wilderado, Soul Asylum, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Hippo Campus, the Hold Steady, the Offspring, Gary Clark Jr., Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Tickets: $135-$925 Fri. only, $255-$1,395 two-day.
