Surf City Yacht Club

Social Events

Come join us for SCYC fun! A festive array of social events for adults is planned on weekends during the season from Memorial Day through mid-October. Saturday night socials include sunset cocktail parties, bay front concerts, BBQ’s, clam bakes, pig roasts and theme parties. Additional social events include golf outings, game and card nights, and a wide variety of family – oriented activities.


Social Events

The Surf City Yacht Club has a rich history of promoting a variety of social activities since its inception. From May through late October the club hosts events on every Saturday evening (and many during the week) including barbecues, beach parties and dances. There are many activities for different groups and this year’s socials include a Docktail party, Clam Bake, Craft beer and Wine Auction, a Martini Social, a Full Moon party, a Pirates party and our own October Chowderfest.

Golf Outings

The Club sponsors four co-ed golf outings during the season and golf is open to the newcomer as well as seasoned golfer alike. We generally play on area courses and many of the outings are “best ball” allowing for spirited but yet friendly competition. Last year we played at the Toms River Country Club and lunch followed play. We also played a “Nine and Dine” at the beautiful Sea Oaks course and non-golf spouses and friends are invited to these lunches and dinners.

Our Club also has a competition team that competes against another yacht club on Long Beach Island and we have won that competition for the past 4 years!

Women’s Auxiliary

All women members of the Surf City Yacht Club are automatically a member of the Auxiliary and are cordially invited to participate in any or all of the activities. The Auxiliary hosts weekly events and special outings. Monday night is Mah Jongg; Tuesday morning is breakfast at the Club and Tuesday evening is game night. Past events have included trips to New York City and Philadelphia. Their special events this season will include their Annual Fashion Show (always well done and sold out), a salad supper, a family pancake breakfast and Super Game Night.

Meeting other club members in small groups and activities leads to making new friendships and fond summer memories. Come to breakfast at the club on Tuesday mornings at 9 am for coffee and talk.

It is a good way to learn about any trips or events that have been planned since the yearbook was printed.

The steering committee always welcomes ideas for additional Auxiliary activities.

Any young member of SCYC who has reached his/her fourteenth birthday by July 1st of the present year, or will be entering ninth grade and will not turn 19 in the calendar year, is considered a “Junior”. All members in this age group are encouraged to join in the Junior social events to make new friends and participate in fun-filled activities with their peers. The Juniors are run by elected officers, including a Junior Commodore, Vice Commodore, Secretary and Treasurer, who plan exciting and entertaining events for their age group throughout the season. One of the highlights of the summer is the Junior Commodore’s Regatta in early July which is organized and run by the SCYC Juniors.
