Formed in 1960, the San Diego Association of Yacht Clubs was founded for the purpose of fostering and encouraging participation in yachting and to promote its public interest in the San Diego area. Yacht Clubs, Sailing Clubs and Associations are all members of SDAYC.


SDAYC is a forum from which its members can exchange ideas, coordinate activities and foster fellowship in the boating community.  We take an active roll in the community by providing input to local and state governments on matters which are of interest to the boating community. 


Our Association member clubs offer Junior Sailing Programs which include sailing lessons and a chance to sharpen sailing skills to non-members as well as members.
