In 2007, SIA Jaunrīgas attīstības uzņēmums, the company in charge of the Andrejsala development project, equipped and opened the yacht moorage facility at the Eksporta Port (the original name was Eksportosta Marina) as a practical step in encouraging the development and stimulating the advantages of navigation. This is also in line with the often publicly voiced calls for developing, popularising and furthering the use of the Rīga's waterways.
In 2008, the handling of the yacht harbour's operations was entrusted to the company SIA Jahtas. During the winter of 2008/09 it managed to attract a number of yachtsmen, sailing enthusiasts and supporters, which lay the foundations of an informal specialist club in Andrejsala. On April 30, 2009, City Yacht Club was established reviving the tradition of a classic yacht club in (and for) the city of Rīga. The key aims of the City Yacht Club are the promotion of yachting/sailing activities in Andrejsala and the support for transformation of post-industrial waterfront areas in Rīga into ones that provide attractive recreation opportunities. Training course for youngsters and children are also among the Club's priorities. In May 2009, a special training programme for adults, Miller Sailing School, was launched with the Club by the long-standing captain of the Milda sailing boat, Rolands Millers.
