Southern California Yachting Association

The Southern California Yachting Association was organized in 1921 to provide a much-needed communication, educational, and organizational service to the yachting community in Southern California and Arizona.  Our objectives are to provide a forum for sharing ideas, identifying and engaging in governmental issues that affect recreational boating, promoting events, acknowledging excellence, and providing a social and educational platform to build a stronger boating community.

Well, you see it now. The site production is a donation and was turned over to us a bit prematurely.

We apologize for the inconsistent completeness of the website.
We are volunteers and we will update it and make the necessary changes as fast as we can. Thank you.
