Founded in 1960, Jackson Yacht Club is recognized as one of the South’s finest Yacht Clubs. JYC’s membership community offers dynamic sailing opportunities on the Ross Barnett Reservoir, a beautiful clubhouse and exquisite dining facilities.

We offer a family oriented atmosphere with several programs and social activities such as an competition sized swimming pool and adult and youth sailing programs.

Jackson Yacht Club’s exceptional culinary and professional management staff pride themselves in impeccable service, attention to detail and flawless presentation and quality.

Flying Scots have long been a part of the Jackson Yacht Club. During the 1960s, the Scot was one of the largest classes on the Reservoir. It was recognized as Fleet 45 by the FSSA. Overtime sadly, interest waned and fleet died out forcing the FSSA to revoke its chapter. In 2012, an enthusiastic group of sailors resurrected the fleet and petitioned the FSSA to renew its charter which was approved. (FSSA letter and fleet charter) In 2013, Scots n’ Water, the publication of the FSSA published an article about the Fleet's resurrection.
