The Rudder Club
Celebrating over 74 years on the St. Johns River, since 1946!
The Rudder Club is a member owned sailing club. We are a family friendly club where kids grow up enjoying the sport of sailing and the outdoors. We host one of the most active small boat fleets on the area with regular weekend buoy races.
We have affordable dry and wet storage rates and an impressive social and racing calendar with many exciting events each year, including the Mug Race known as "the world's longest river race". Our Sailing Camp takes place for 5 weeks each summer and is a fun and healthy way for kids to spend their school vacation.
For membership inquiries or a tour you can contact our office to schedule an appointment. Friday Night Happy Hour & Open House Events are also perfect opportunities to see if our club is a good fit for you.
Club Boats & Training
For Sailors, by Sailors
Our members can enjoy the use of our club boats! The fleet includes Opti’s, Picos, Lasers, Hobie Cats, Flying Juniors, and Flying Scots, all available for leisure sailing, training, or racing as you like. Additionally, the Rudder Club encourages training at all levels and offers adult sailing lessons, junior sailing summer camp/training, race committee training, and more. Our members include first time boaters to lifelong sailors.
Membership includes access to our pool, bar, lounge, dock, and shaded patio! When you are not on the water, come relax, have a drink, and tell us a story as we spend the evening enjoying the beautiful views overlooking the St. Johns River.
