The San Francisco Yacht Club and its members are dedicated to promoting and celebrating yachting and life on the water. Founded in 1869, The SFYC is the oldest yacht club in North America, west of the Mississippi River. Originally sited at San Francisco’s China Basin near Mission Rock, The Club moved to its current site in tranquil Belvedere Cove in 1937, after a short time in Sausalito. With its tranquil setting, its superb harbor and stunning views of the San Francisco skyline, it's widely recognized as a premier yachting facility on the West Coast and one of the finest anchorages in the Bay Area. It operates a year- facility, including the harbor, a dry-sail area, a full-service restaurant and bar.
