Southwestern Yacht Club is one of the largest, oldest and most prestigious yacht clubs in San Diego, California.  

SWYC was formed in 1925 by visionary yachting enthusiasts looking for ways to enjoy each other’s company and to share their passion for boating.  Since then, the Club has developed into a full-service operation with more than 800 members embracing all forms of yachting, fishing and social activities, all while earning a reputation as being the friendliest club in the area.

Southwestern Yacht Club

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.  With incredible Point Loma and San Diego Bay vistas, SWYC also boasts a beautiful, state-of-the-art yachting clubhouse and facilities which were refurbished in 2010.

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 several community events including the Junior Foundation (providing scholarships for youth sailing programs), the White Sea Bass Release Project and other charitable programs.
