      Now in its 88th year, the club is known worldwide as the home of the Congressional Cup, the Grandfather of Modern Match Racing.

      We are proud of the many things that make our club the excellent club it is; the many regattas we host, the youth and adult swimming activities that take place in our beautiful swimming pool, our youth and adult sailing programs, and the memorable social opportunities that are launched through our anglers, cruisers, diving, RVers and golf clubs.

      We have exceptional dining facilities and a terrific lounge to swap your boating tales.

      Welcome to Long Beach Yacht Club where the Good Times Roll!

      History of Long Beach Yacht Club

      Long Beach Yacht Club began in 1929 as a direct result of an inquiry from the Associated Boating Industries of Northern California about the possibility of a powerboat race between Long Beach and San Francisco. The proposed race would be run during the San Francisco Motor Boat Show, and would provide advertising for the show and the Northern California boating industries. The inquiry was addressed to Daniel M. Callis, Sr., a prominent naval architect active in yacht club committee work.

      The inquiry to Callis, and the subsequent initial race, clearly were the catalysts that led to the formation of Long Beach Yacht Club as we know it today. Another Long Beach Yacht Club might have formed under other circumstances, but those two events started the current Long Beach Yacht Club.
