Clubhouse ground breaking article circa 1984

Established in 1976, PCYC members enjoy social and boating activities in one of Ventura County's most beautiful settings. Operating year-round, the Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club offers a variety of activities for our members and families including a swimming pool & spa, a full service dining room, and full service bar. Our members enjoy morning yoga, sailing the Pacific Ocean on the club sailboat Selavy, navigating Channel Islands Harbor in the club owned 22ft electric boat, paddle boarding, riding the aqua bikes, and kayaking.

PCYC takes pride in being one of the friendliest yacht clubs in Southern California. As a member of the Southern California Yachting Association, club members enjoy reciprocity benefits with yacht clubs throughout California, and around the world. But what our members like most is coming to the club on a Friday night for Ice Breakers (Happy Hour) and dinner, meeting friends for bridge (3 groups) staying healthy with yoga, and enjoying the friendships they have made with other members.

We invite you to schedule a personal tour of Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club and consider becoming part of our community. Call us at (805) 985-7292 or email us at pcycyachtclub@gmail.com.

Steve and Rita Emerson originally came to the Oxnard beaches to visit friends. After a short time, they fell in love with the area and in 1994 bought a lot on the ocean front, built a new home and moved in 1997. Initially, it was mostly a weekend home, but recently it has become their four-day retreat paradise. They are exceptionally happy they bought their lot while there was still some ocean front lot space!

Rita grew up in New Jersey and moved to California in 1969. She attended CSU Northridge and majored in Physical Geography. Upon graduation, she went to work for a non-profit that focused on earthquake preparedness for schools and major businesses. After five years, her brother contracted cancer and she decided to learn as much about the disease as possible. She began working as a Cancer Information Specialist at UCLA in a center funded by the National Cancer Institute. After the 9/11 attack, she earned her Master’s in Public Health from CSUN, with a focus on bio-terrorism prevention. Eventually, she created a new education organization, PATH (People Assisting the Homeless), which offers assistance to the homeless so they can successfully re-join the work force.

Steve is a Los Angeles native whose parents emigrated from Europe before WWII. His father was a rocket scientist and his mother was an art historian. Steve graduated with a business degree from UCLA and his MBA is from USC. He initially worked as a security analyst with large companies like Transamerica. But for the last 50 years he has focused on managing his own investment company, the Emerson Investment Group, which focuses on managing the Emerson Family Foundation, a non-profit organization designed to support the state of Israel.

Steve and Rita Emerson 

Rita’s and Steve’s personal passion is with international, tandem bicycling, which has taken them to countries such as Portugal, France, Italy and Spain, with recent trips through Ukraine and New Zealand. However, their most challenging trek was through Glacier National Park, where they cycled to the top of Continental Divide. They both also enjoy daily swimming and recently built a large lap pool at their LA home.

Together they have a 40 year old son, Brian, who lives in LA and works as a digital animator. Their older son, Alleghany, is a ceramic potter, who lives in Colorado with their three grandchildren ages 19, 11 and 9. 

They joined PCYC in large part due to the influence of Barbara and Tom Quigan, who are their neighbors and close friends. What they love most about the Club, so far, are the great members they have met, the beautiful, full-service, fine dining room, and the Club’s welcoming social atmosphere. They see it as a great place to chill out and relax after their hectic LA life. They are especially looking forward to using the Club’s water toys, learning more about the Club’s nautical traditions, and participating in the Club’s wonderful parties. Welcome Steve and Rita!
