Welcome to the SFYC

Founded in 1869, The San Francisco Yacht Club is the oldest Yacht Club on the Pacific Coast of North America. The Club is highly respected for its rich history, its longstanding traditions and the exciting additions to our programs to meet the diverse and changing needs of our approximately 1,400 active members

The Board of Directors, Flag Officers, Auxiliary and Standing Committees are very active supporting the operations of the Club. This includes maintaining our financial stability, our cherished buildings and property and our harbor facilities; coordinating educational programs and speaker events; and organizing a wide range of cruising, racing and social events for members of all ages. The Club’s management team and staff are some of the best in the industry and are eager to ensure a favorable experience for members and their guests.

The San Francisco Yacht Club operates year round and is open Wednesday through Sunday each week. The harbor facilities include a breakwall, member and guest docks adjacent to the clubhouse deck, 190 slips that were upgraded substantially over the three-year period ending in 2012 and dry storage that recently included the addition of SUP racks. The Corinthian Deck overlooks our harbor and the tranquil Belvedere Cove. This is a favorite spot for anyone seeking a warm spot in the sun after a breezy day on the bay. Off in the distance, one can often see the fog that is the evidence of a much chillier environment. This is the wind tunnel that streams through the Golden Gate - mother nature’s gift to the bay area sailing community! To the west of our clubhouse deck, you will often find members with their children at our much-loved beach that has been enjoyed by generations of members.
