The Pelican Yacht Club is located at 6712 False River Road in Oscar, 25 away miles from Baton Rouge and 60 miles away from Lafayette. On beautiful False River, beginners enjoy the calm waters while experts will find leveraging wind shifts challenging. The Pelican Yacht Club is a safe place for families to introduce children to sailing as False River is an oxbow lake where one is never far from the shore.

The Pelican Yacht Club organizes sailing events throughout the year. We are a full member of the Gulf Yachting Association, consisting of over 30 yachting and sailing clubs along the Gulf Coast. As such, our members share many benefits and activities.

No boat? No problem! Club members enjoy using the club’s boats, all included in our affordable dues. Boat owners also enjoy our affordable dry storage fees.

For more information about the Pelican Yacht Club, contact the commodore by email at or send us a message on our facebook page. Of course, you can also stop by any weekend day, or whenever you see sails on False River.
