Welcome to Surf City Yacht Club

Life's Better by the Bay!

Welcome to the Surf City Yacht Club website! SCYC has a beautiful bay-front clubhouse and marina located at 9th and the Bay in Surf City on idyllic Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Celebrating almost 125 years of sailing, boating, socializing, fun and friendships by the Bay, we invite you to explore and enjoy our site.

Mission Statement

Established in 1894, SCYC's mission is to promote youth and adult sailing and other watersports, fun, fellowship and service, while being good stewards of our traditions, facilities and surrounding waters.




As Surf City Yacht Club begins its 83rd season let me be the first to welcome you and your family. The summer of 2023 is shaping up to be the best yet. We truly have something for everyone! Our clubhouse has a new deck which faces the bay. From there you can watch sailboat races, swimming lessons, or just have a drink and watch the sunset.


The flag officers and our members have cleaned, cleared out, polished and prepped the marina, clubhouse and yard so that your experience at SCYC is everything you expect. If you are a boater our wet and dry slips are ready for your boat. If you are family members, we have youth programs from 8-18. If you are looking to reconnect with friends or make some new ones, we have a full calendar of events throughout the week and weekend. If you are a teen or pre-teen, we have a juniors program calendar filled with activities for you too.


SCYC has a long and rich tradition of volunteering and working for each other. This is evident throughout the club from the fall and spring work parties to members hosting socials to parents helping out with children’s programs. Much of the fun and enjoyment is directly attributable to this spirit of camaraderie.  This is what makes us SCYC!


So, let’s together make this a summer to remember, here at Surf City Yacht Club.
