In about 1894 a group of young men, who vacationed regularly or lived in Surf City on LBI created an informal club for the promotion of aquatic sports. Over the years these young men, joined by others from time to time, continued their interest despite wars, depressions, and hurricanes and became known locally as the “Surf City Yacht Club”.
The Surf City Yacht Club has become a place for adults and children to enjoy a variety of social events, sailing and boating activities in a vibrant and fun atmosphere.
Their expansive bay front location provides unfettered access to the bay for all types of water related sports. The clubhouse offers an inviting atmosphere for relaxing and socializing for each and every member.
SCYC creates a sense of community that develops lifelong relationships and fond memories and generations of children have grown and thrived by participating in our summer programs.
So whether you relax through sailing, social activities, boating, swimming, or just hanging out by the bay, you’ll find that SCYC is a special place and is one of the best kept secrets on Long Beach Island.
