Auxiliary of the Sausalito Yacht Club (SYCA):

What is the SYCA? The SYCA is how spouses and significant others of SYC club members can play an active role in the Club. We have functioned as a Support Organization for the SYC since 1959.

The SYCA hosts many fun social events you’ve probably already participated in, such as the Valentine’s Dance and Bloody Mary Sunday in the fall, rounding out the overall social calendar of SYC.

We also support specialized children’s events such as the Easter Egg Hunt, a Christmas party with Santa, and provide financial support for the Junior Sailing program.

Some of the funds that we raise are used to support improvements and maintenance of the actual SYC club house.

Benefits of an SYCA membership include a parking sticker for your car if you are not a Sausalito resident.  Membership fee is only $75 per year.

Club Involvement and Support

Beyond the practical benefits, SYCA is a great way to get involved with the Club and get to know other Club members.

SYCA is always looking for volunteers to help out with the many different events.  You can volunteer however often you like.

The Auxiliary has its own board of directors and rules, though it functions under the auspices of the Yacht Club. We hold meetings on a regular basis where we plan our upcoming events. If you are interested in learning more about the Auxiliary, please don’t hesitate to e-mail us at

Although SYCA traditionally hosts certain events, we are open to new ideas and vary our calendar from year to year. In the past we’ve hosted fashion shows, theme parties, theater evenings and rummage sales.
