Want to get involved? The Cruise program needs a couple of hearty souls with good organizational skills to volunteer as Cruise Captain for these events. This is another opportunity to get involved with your club (the Cruise Chair and many prior Cruise Captains will help so it isn’t a huge commitment).

SYC Cruise Program
The objective of the Cruise Program at SYC is to develop new friendships with fellow Members while enjoying the waters of the Bay, Delta and Coastal areas.
The schedule is diverse and designed to include ALL MEMBERS. Whether your mode of transport is by sail, power or land or a combination, there will be cruises you will enjoy.

Our goal is to have at least one cruise per month, February – November. We have local cruises to Angel Island, Alameda and San Francisco. There are longer distance cruises to the Delta, Napa, & Benicia. There is a cruise with a race included for sailors and we’ll look to add a few more races to the Cruise plan.

Sign up for one or for all!! Get involved, meet your fellow Club Members and SYC Boat owners, use your Club reciprocal privileges and discover new locations. You will experience one of the most exciting and fun aspects of having your boat on San Francisco Bay and belonging to a yacht club with an active Cruise Program.

How to Register for Cruises

To register for cruises, look at the list above and click on the name of the cruise you wish to attend.  If you have cruise registration problems, contact your Cruise Captain or the Cruise Chair who will assist you in registration.

Once registered, you will receive an acknowledgement from either the Cruise Chair or the Cruise Captain and your name will be added to the list of people planning to participate. More importantly, you will be included on an email list that will be used to send you updates and more detailed information on the cruise.

All alcohol ordered at the table during dinner must be paid for that night by each table and will not be added to any SYC master bill.
