Mission Bay Yacht Club Logo


We appreciate your interest regarding membership at Mission Bay Yacht Club. Our Club offers a variety of benefits and programs for boating enthusiasts of all ages in San Diego’s best playground – Mission Bay. As a member of Mission Bay Yacht Club, you will have the opportunity to get involved in club-sponsored fleets which include several one-design sailing fleets, and a Cruising fleet. In addition to fleet activities, the Club hosts various social events during the year. Further, our year-round Junior program provides sailing instruction, summer programs, and activities for younger Club members. Mission Bay Yacht Club has a strong tradition of Corinthian sailboat racing. The Club sponsors many regattas throughout the year. You will find national champions and novices alike competing in our regattas. Mission Bay Yacht Club’s ideal location makes it a favorite venue for national and world championship regattas.

All of us here at the Mission Bay Yacht Club want you to know that we value you as a member and want to make sure you continue to get the most out of your time spent at the Club. The volunteer Board of Directors organizes both racing and social events and works hard to keep the facilities at the Club in excellent working order. However, it is important to remember that the operation of our Club is dependent upon member cooperation and volunteer efforts. Each MBYC member is expected to participate in this volunteer effort in support of our Club. There are ample opportunities to get involved ranging from Club maintenance to Regatta support and race committees, to social and fundraising events and more.

We invite you to learn more about Mission Bay Yacht Club by meeting some of our members and touring the facilities. Please contact the club at (858) 488-0501 to make an appointment to visit.
