St. Francis Yacht Club was founded in 1927 by a group of 21 San Francisco Yachtsmen with a vision of a club in the City. Ground was broken for the clubhouse that year, and events were held on members’ yachts until the club was formally opened in 1928.

St. Francis Yacht Club is a year-round host of over 40 regattas on San Francisco Bay, including the annual Big Boat Series each September. The Club was host to the 2000 US Olympic Sailing Trials, and continues to host World and National Championships.

Located directly on the shores of San Francisco Bay, StFYC boasts incredible panoramic views that span from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz.
