The FOOTHILLS YACHT CLUB was founded in 1982 as an organization formed to provide a forum for single men and women over 30 to meet in a social environment and not for business promotion. The Tucson Citizen announced the Club as "a new ship on the horizon of the Arizona Desert." A group of 400 single, professional people were invited to attend the first party with dancing, Mariachis and several speakers at the Arizona Inn.
The FOOTHILLS YACHT CLUB now welcomes single and married adults who wish to participate in the aim, philosophy and activities of the Club. We are a congenial group interested in each individual's background, diversity, and life's stories. The developing friendships continue to enrich our lives as we share our fun times together.
