What we're about
Ahoy! Welcome to the Long Beach Singles Yacht Club (or LBSYC, formerly known as the "Long Beach Singles Sailing Association"), a volunteer organization formed in 1985 that promotes sailing, boating, socializing and preservation of our ocean resources.
We're the largest Yacht Club for singles in the Southern California area with many events and gatherings. We're also a member of the Southern California Yachting Association (SCYA), which gives our members access to official sailboat racing events and reciprocal privileges at certain other member Yacht Clubs. Membership in LBSYC is open to any person of acceptable character and personality, whether single or married.
About 35% of our members are boatowners (both power and sail) and 65% are "crew". No boating experience is needed; only a desire to sail, be on the water and have fun with other like-minded people.
Come join us for a variety of both land and water-based activities and social events. We do a variety of sail and powerboating, raftups, trips to Catalina and other local sailing destinations, parties and dances.
Daysails and cruises on Members' boats posted here are at NO CHARGE. We only ask that you bring some food to share with others.
We have regular meetings the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of most months at Seaside Cafe in the Seaport Marina Hotel, at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and 2nd St/Westminster in Long Beach. Social hour starts at 7pm and the regular meeting starts at 8 pm; there is a charge to defray the cost of the room and the food. See our event postings for further details regarding speakers and other interesting events at our regular meetings.
Feel free to peruse or RSVP to our sailings and other Meetup events posted here, but we give priority to our Members. Membership is $60 per year; it's one of the best deals either on or off the water. For more club and membership information, see our web page at "LBSYC.ORG". We also have a monthly newsletter (the "Bosun's Pipe") which can be viewed by members and downloaded online.
