The Oceanside Yacht Club, formed in 1963, is proud to be of service to the Harbor District and the Community at large. Several of our programs do not require membership to the club, we offer them in hopes that others will learn to enjoy the sea as we do.
Our most successful & rewarding service offered is our Learn to Sail Program for both young people and adults. The adult LTS is offered in a one-weekend (two day) course, while the Junior LTS is offered in a weekly to several weeks’ summer camp. These programs stress water and boating safety as well as sailing technique with in the classroom & on the water instructions from a ASA certified sailing instructor.
In conjunction with the Oceanside Harbor District, Oceanside Yacht Club sponsors the annual Holiday Parade of Lights, with all entrants welcome. We also put on the Yankee Doodle Dingy Parade on the 4th of July as well as participate and help in the city's great Harbor Day's event.
We promote & host two Charity Regattas in which Elizabeth Hospice Organization & Women’s Resource Center is the recipients of the proceeds.
Summer and spring see the advent of our racing season with weekly races held for both Oceanside Yacht Club members and non-members. These activities allow boaters in general to interact and hone their sailing skills.
Oceanside Yacht Club also carries the Oceanside name up and down the coast with multiple coastal races that are attended by many yacht clubs from southern California.
As members we have fun in everything we do, with several parties/dances per year, wonderful cruising trips to other clubs, Easter egg hunt, Monday Night Football, as well as dinner every Friday and Saturday night. In summer months during racing season the club is open Wednesday thru Sunday with dinner offered Wednesday, Friday & Saturday.
We have a junior program for youth 8-18 and a "Funraising" program that does fun-raising as well as fund-raising. Most of the fun times can be shared with all Club members, both ladies and gentlemen.
Oceanside Yacht Club located at the north side of the harbor, between Jolly Roger & Marina Inn. Oceanside Yacht Club is a private club, so please stop by during club hours when a member is present, take a tour & get more information. You do not need to be a boat owner to be a member.
