ABOUT SOUTHWESTERN YACHT CLUB
Southwestern Yacht Club (SWYC) is one of the largest, oldest and most prestigious yacht clubs in San Diego, California.
SWYC was formed in 1925 by visionary yachtsmen looking for ways to enjoy each other’s company and to share their enthusiasm for boating. Since then, the Club has developed into a full-service operation with nearly 750 members embracing all forms of yachting, fishing and social activities and earning a reputation as being the “friendliest club” in the area.
SWYC has an unmatched location in a beautiful Point Loma residential area, within the Shelter Island Yacht Basin. There are nearby walking trails, restaurants and boating services, plus quick access to San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean from our docks. SWYC also boasts a beautiful, state-of-the-art yachting clubhouse and facilities, which opened in April 2010, with incredible Point Loma and San Diego Bay vistas.
Southwestern Yacht Club believes in giving back to the Community. The Benefit on the Bay Events (Gala, Race with post-race BBQ and Anglers Tournament) are annual fundraising events with all proceeds benefiting a worthy San Diego foundation. SWYC is proud to support a number of community events including the Special Olympics Sailing Program, the Junior Foundation (providing scholarships for youth sailing programs), the White Sea Bass Release project and other charitable programs.
