Welcome to Surf City Yacht Club

Meet 2020 Commodore
Kim Friedman

Dear Members –

I believe that home is where your heart is.

After a long cold winter your heart is telling you to head home to Surf City Yacht Club. It is the home of warm salty breezes, stellar sunsets, and beautiful bay views. It is the home of the canon saluting the sunset at a Saturday night social. It is the home where your children and grandchildren learn to swim and sail and make friendships that last a lifetime. It is the home where you come for yoga and coffee on a Tuesday morning. It is the home where you start the weekend with Happy Hour on Friday night. It is the home where you and your friends enjoy the bay in your sailboat or powerboat.

Our Clubhouse is just a house – it is our members that make it a home. Come in and take advantage of everything it has to offer. Get involved, go for a sail, come to a party, help race committee – there are lots of ways to make SCYC your home away from home. It is open and ready for you to enjoy.

On behalf of the Flag Officers, the Board of Directors and our Staff I welcome you home for Summer 2020. Let’s make it one for the record books!

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.
