The Rudder Club of Jacksonville was founded in the 1940s and is located on scenic and serene riverfront land near the intersection of US-17 and I-295 (next to the Buckman Bridge).

Perhaps the best kept secret in Jacksonville, Florida, can be found tucked away under a canopy of giant oak trees along the west bank of the St. Johns River.

Through the years, the club has continued to provide both cruising and racing members with a club setting where interest, enthusiasm and experience in the sport of sailing are mutually enjoyed.
