Introducing the 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.

The SYCA hosts many fun social events you’ve probably already participated in, such as the Valentine’s Dance and the Memorial Day BBQ, 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. But there’s more!

Excess funds that we raise are used to support improvements and maintenance of the actual SYC club house as well as a few Sausalito worthy community groups.

Benefits of an SYCA membership include a key fob for entrance to the club, parking sticker for your car and a parking card to allow access to the parking lot if you are not a Sausalito resident.

Free parking and the ability to use the club comfortably without having to haul your spouse or significant other around … for just $75 a year!

Club Involvement and Support

Fun volunteer opportunities. 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 social events, raffles, etc. There is a full SYCA board, Board Members at large, and various committees, so that you can volunteer in whichever way you like and to whichever level you are comfortable with.

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, various theme parties, theater evenings and rummage sales.
