Interested in Membership at SBYC?

Good thinking!

South Beach Yacht Club welcomes enthusiastic people 

who provide strength and diversity to the Club.

Don't miss the boat. Whether you're a beginning sailor 

or an expert, a racer, a cruiser, own a sailboat

or a powerboat, or even if you have no boat at all, as long as you have 

a demonstrated current interest in boating,

South Beach Yacht Club welcomes you as a potential member 

and contributor to the Club's future!

Our members come from all over the Bay Area (and some from far beyond). 

Many members have boats; some do not.

But the one thing we all have in common is an interest in boating and 

a willingness to enjoy good times together.

We are an all volunteer-based organization that requires the 

active involvement of all our members.

This keeps our dues down, the food and drink prices reasonable, 

and promotes a family spirit among our members.

Volunteers invariably feel paid back many times over for their efforts.

We keep our membership categories simple and typically meet most people's needs.

Read below to find a membership category that is right for you!
