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.


Dear Members,

It is my privilege to welcome you back to our home by the bay for the 2022 season and to our newly designed website. Check back frequently for Club news, race results and new features in the Members Only Section.

For the 2022 season, we have planned a full schedule of activities for all ages. Complete sailing, swimming, social, and Auxiliary schedules are found on this website.  Be sure to mark your calendars!

It is my hope that as our season opens, Covid-19 and its variants will have largely waned so that everyone can feel comfortable participating in all that SCYC has to offer.

To those of you visiting this website to find out more about SCYC, let me tell you that as this year’s Commodore, I, along with my fellow Flag officers and Board members, are guardians of a proud tradition, 128 years in the making. SCYC is a club for the members, run by the members, and dedicated to enjoying all the benefits that Barnegat Bay can offer- boating, swimming and sailing- and to the wonderful relationships that result when these are enjoyed with others, always mindful that our Bay is a resource to be protected.

Our social calendar is full of events throughout the late spring, summer and into mid-fall (maybe winter), including live bands, a Fourth-of-July weekend “fair”, and return of the popular Pig Roast.   A special emphasis this year is to build upon last year’s successful restart of junior activities. Junior Commodore Sam Kiamie and I invite our young people to get involved and enjoy the special, life-long friendships that have been building for generations.

Not a member, and are like-minded with our Mission Statement come join us, request a membership application. 

I look forward to seeing all of you and to a great season!
