Welcome to the SFYC

The San Francisco Yacht Club is the oldest Yacht Club West of the Mississippi in North America. The Club, with its tranquil setting in Belvedere Cove and its superb harbor, is widely recognized as the premier yachting facility on the West Coast. It operates a year round facility including the harbor, a dry haul area, a full service restaurant and bar. The Club has a very active junior sailing program and all members are committed to the Corinthian traditions of yachting.

Notes from the Commodore

March 4th member’s Meeting Report:

The third Members Meeting on March 4th was well supported, with over 100 of our members joining the Officers and Committee heads. I appreciate everyone’s participation, assisting the Board to continue our mission of keeping you informed on the latest developments. My gratitude especially goes out to our presenters, who were well prepared and spoke expertly on each of the subjects. Their presentations were a result of gathering vast amounts of data regarding the Club’s usage patterns, Membership trends, and expected facilities needs in the future. The Board strives to maintain the confidence of our Membership, and your belief we’re moving in the right direction. If you were not able to attend the meeting, or you’d like to further review the presentations, we have posted them on the website. They can be found in the Member’s Section of under the Board tab.

To continue gathering information and further formulate a baseline of a consensus, you can express your opinion of the issues addressed during the meeting, by sending an email to

SFYC Bulletin On-line:

Shortly you will be able to access your SFYC Bulletin wherever you are, on your phone, tablet, or computer. Look for the Bulletin to be emailed in a PDF version, only a couple clicks away.  The Club is conducting a three month trial period, to determine the acceptance of electronic distribution.  Although many prefer receiving a hard copy in the mail, the Board is looking for means to control the high printing and delivery costs, and eventually to allow Members to go Green and opt out of the mailed Bulletin. 

New Website Update:

Since going live with the SFYC website, I have found it a very helpful resource. Most of the 2014 schedules have been updated, and we are in the process of adding news features to keep you current with the latest SFYC activities. We encourage your feedback and hope that the new website becomes a favorite bookmark in your browser!  We are always looking for great new content, so please email photos you'd like to see on the pages of our website to
