All Members and their guests in the Bar and Galley must wear face masks at all times except when actively eating and drinking. Unvaccinated children older than two years of age and under five years of age are also welcome but they must wear a face mask at all times except when actively eating and drinking.

For the month of January, all Meetings will be conducted virtually, and all large in-person events have been canceled.
In mid-January, the San Francisco Yacht Club Board of Directors will review Marin County data and the calendar of events for February and adjust these protocols as appropriate. This process will be repeated monthly until no longer required.
If you are a Member and have not already done so, please register your proof of vaccination with the Club through our website or mobile app. This simple step will make your access to the Club much easier.

Explore The Club
The SFYC Auxiliary, comprised of female members, is proud of its 68 years of service to The San Francisco Yacht Club. Founded in 1953, this group provides social opportunities for Members and their families, and facilitates fundraising activities to benefit Youth Sailing and Club projects.
Our Esteemed History
Founded in 1869, the San Francisco Yacht Club is the oldest yacht club on the West Coast. The original Clubhouse, located in San Francisco, was the first yacht club west of the Mississippi. Today, 151 years and several new locations later, The SFYC is in beautiful Belvedere and remains rooted in its deep maritime history.
The Cove House
Completed in 2020, this first-class events facility offers expansive rooms and stunning harbor views. Members and guests utilize this space for regattas, programs, parties and private events.
Dining At The Sfyc
Our full-service restaurant and bar offer everything from fine dining to family-friendly favorites. Thanks to the Mediterranean climate of Marin County, The SFYC enjoys dining in our formal dining room, on our Corinthian Deck and along our Cove House Lawn.
