San Juan Island Yacht Club

The San Juan Island Yacht Club is the island's largest boating organization with over 300 members, power and sail.  The Club is inclusive and works actively to connect  the island community with its marine environment and the boating experience.  A major activity sponsored by the Club each year is Opening Day in early May with its theme of "A Community Afloat". This is a celebration involving boaters, islands businesses and community groups of all stripes in support of boating education and safety. 

Our clubhouse is a full service facility with large meeting room, bar and kitchen facilities that hosts club dinners most Wednesday and Friday nights, as well as many special social events throughout the year.   Members of yacht clubs with reciprocal privileges have first-come/first served access to free club moorage in the harbor and are invited to join club members on dinner nights.

The San Juan Island Yacht Club is a cruising club. Our members travel as far north as Glacier Bay and south to the Gulf of California.  We sponsor 10 or more cruises in the Salish Sea and beyond each year along with the popular Shaw Island Classic sailing race.   Memberships are currently available.
