History of SCYC

Our history relates back more than 100 years when, in 1894, a group of young men got together and created an informal organization to promote aquatic sports. As the group grew, it became known as the Surf City Yacht Club and in 1940 the Club was formally created as a non-profit organization.

By 1954, with its membership roll at 82 members, the first clubhouse was constructed and the club has continued to grow since. Our members share the love of sailing, power boating, community and friendship with fellow members, their families and friends. Read More

Sailing and Boating

Sailing and Boating

Our club offers an excellent junior sailing and waterfront program designed with both the beginner and experienced young sailor in mind. It is one of the best in the nation. Experience sailing instructors conduct the program from late June until mid-August each year and junior members learn sailing techniques, safety and sportsmanship.

Young members can also learn to swim and join our swim team; we also offer a program for the very young—our BayKids program is for children from 3 to 6 years old and is offered 3 mornings per week. And if you’re interested in becoming a sailor, we offer adult sailing instruction as well. Read More

We have a beautiful waterfront clubhouse. Standing on our deck overlooking Barnegat Bay and watching some of LBI’s famous sunsets is a benefit that is hard to take for granted.
