The Astoria Yacht Club was established on the 16th day of October 1931, by Edward C. Judd, H.L. Edling and A. C. Fulton, all residents of Astoria, Oregon. 

Throughout the years, the Astoria Yacht Club has carried on the tradition of hosting various exciting and unique regattas, cruises and other functions involving good food and fellowship with other Yacht Club members.
