Yacht Club Argentino

Perched at the end of Puerto Madero with the River Plate lapping at its feet, Yacht Club Argentino is the only yacht club to speak of in Capital Federal and is a great spot for lunch on a sunny day.

To enter you must be affiliated with another yacht club – any will do. But if you just call ahead and mention a yacht club (even if you’re not strictly a member of one), then it might be possible to get in. There are times in Buenos Aires when a little white lie is worth telling.

The club was formed in 1883, but the clubhouse was built in 1915. Sailing veterans such as Chay Blythe – who completed the first westward circumnavigation of the world – to mention one, have told their tales of icebergs and 50-foot waves here.

Yacht Club Argentino is the heartbeat of yachting in central Buenos Aires; procure a table under the tree beside the clubhouse for a unique view of the river.
