Rose City Yacht Club traces its beginnings to 1932, when 20 Portland boaters organized the Rose City Cruising Club, with headquarters at the Staff Jennings marina on the Willamette River.
In February 1939, a group of 10 organized the club, naming it Rose City Yacht Club. A floating Clubhouse was built and moored at Tomahawk Island and the membership grew to 35.
