South Beach YC offers some of Northern California's finest year-round racing.

We hit the Bay's racing scene with style in 1989 with a challenge for a Labor Day Weekend race

that became our annual Jazz Cup. Our racing has grown ever since.

There's nothing like finishing a race to the roar of the crowd under bright stadium lights at a

World Series winning SF Giants home game. Always a thrill when national TV

pans down to our finish line and catches our sails.

Today our racing calendar consists of our mid-winter and summer race series, regional races,

and select regattas that we host and or provide race committee for.

You can find all of our active races on our Regattas page.

Year Round Schedule

Friday Night Series
