The Poquoson Yacht Club is a club of boating enthusiasts and good friends on the Virginia Peninsula. Our club building and pier are located at the end of Messick road in Poquoson, Virginia, on the Back River opposite Langley Air Force Base (home of Air Combat Command), NASA Langley Research Center, and Hampton, Virginia.


The original club building was severely damaged by Hurricane Isabel. It was demolished and a new building was constructed on the same site.  The Club House is located just to the left of the photograph above--looking east from our parking lot--toward the confluence of Back River and the Chesapeake Bay.



 Our activities are mostly social, at our club on Messick Road. Boating activities begin in the Spring and last until our popular Lighted Boat Parade and Santa's arrival on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.


Many of our members own boats and participate in summer group trips around the Chesapeake Bay and occasionally the waters of North Carolina.
