Surf City Yacht Club

The Best Kept Secret on LBI


Welcome to Surf City Yacht Club


Welcome to Surf City Yacht Club, a place for families and adults to enjoy sailing, boating and social activities on Barnegat Bay on Long Beach Island, NJ. Our expansive bayfront location offers panoramic views of Barnegat Bay and our marina provides unfettered access to the bay.

For generations, SCYC has fostered a sense of family creating lifelong friendships and fond memories. Operating from May through October, our club hosts sailing regattas, boating activities, and a variety of social functions for our adult and family members. Our functions range from private concerts to theme parties and organized game nights. We also offer sailing lessons for our adult members.

We have a very active program for our junior members. Our waterfront program offers sailing and swimming lessons from beginner to advanced. We also offer several organized social events and local outings for children of all ages.

Surf City Yacht Club has built a reputation as a sailing powerhouse. All summer, our sailors compete weekly in club sponsored and regional regattas. Our sailors have also competed internationally and have brought home several regional, national and international championship trophies.

Our bay front clubhouse, with its magnificent view, is an ideal venue for your wedding, rehearsal dinner, shower or event!

If you like to sail, boat, swim, socialize, or just relax, Surf City Yacht Club can be your summer home. We are one of the best kept secrets on Long Beach Island!

Register to become a US Sailing MVP

Many of the learning and sailing opportunities we enjoy at the club are made available to us by US Sailing, a nonprofit, member supported organization. They are a valuable resource and their programs are essential to our club. US Sailing is committed to building participation at the local level, and we can help them do so.

US Sailing and SCYC are partners through the US Sailing MVP Program. While SCYC has always utilized a breadth of US Sailing resources, our decision to join the MVP Program will introduce even more valuable programs and services to our members, as well as savings on program materials and US Sailing membership fees.

Every US Sailing member contributes to the programs that we enjoy at SCYC. We are all “US Sailing” and I encourage you to join me and every US Sailing member by becoming a member and investing in a thriving future for our sport.

Youth Sailing and Swimming

We offer an 8-week sailing and swimming program for children ages 4 – 18 who are either Junior members or children/grandchildren of members.

Young children can participate in our “Bay Kids” program to offer a safe and fun introduction to sailing and swimming.

Older children and young adults can join our Waterfront program and compete in weekly competitions with the other LBI yacht clubs!


Introduction to waterfront activities for children age 4 to 7. Classes will be held MWF from 9:00am to noon. An opportunity to bring our younger members into the Waterfront program and teach them about the island, the bay, and various aquatic sports with a “hands-on” activity oriented program.
This course offers an introduction to sailing for 7- 8 year olds in a very relaxed and secure atmosphere. The main focus is for sailors to become comfortable and confident while in a boat and on the water. Students are encouraged to use their own boats but the class can accommodate up to ten children without boats.
Introduction to basic sailing and seamanship. Students will learn a positive attitude toward sailing as well as responsibility for self, others, and equipment. Students are encouraged to begin in an Optimist dingy. Other boats may be available depending on a sailor’s size and age. Please speak to the head sailing instructor.
Designed for sailors who have acquired basic skills and are ready to start racing. Focuses on improved boathandling skills, sail control, sportsmanship and basic racing and rules. Responsibility for equipment care and maintenance are stressed.

Focus is on racing strategies and tactics. Additional topics will include: weather patterns, maximizing boat speed, sail dynamics, sail trim, starting and finishing, comprehensive knowledge of rules, and sportsmanship. Team racing will be introduced. This class requires a full commitment to Wednesday interclubs and the Weekend Series with a minimum of 3 away full day regattas. Regatta attendance counts as a class session.
In addition to our extensive sailing programs, SCYC also has a fun and competitive swim program for all ages. We offer swimming lessons for all ages and abilities in both private and group lessons. We also have a competitive and fun swim team for all boys and girls up to age 17. We compete against other yacht clubs on the island with an emphasis on team spirit, sportsmanship and positive group dynamics.
