Over three hundred members strong, the Golden Gate Yacht Club welcomes both sail and power boaters and their crew to its membership ranks. In addition, non-boat owners are also welcome as affiliate members. Golden Gate Yacht Club, home of the America's Cup and home port of ORACLE TEAM USA, provides bar and dining service with dazzling views of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Marin.
Members also enjoy an active race schedule in addition to social activities such as Opening Day on the Bay; our renowned Salmon Derby; Fleet Week Brunch (best view on the Bay to see the Fleet arrive and watch the Blue Angels perform); Halloween Party; Santa-by-Boat Brunch; New Year's Eve Celebration and Changing of the Watch; and cruise-outs to other yacht clubs.
The club's success relies on an active membership. Members are expected to contribute to the club through volunteerism on such committees as:
- Publications & Publicity
- Finance & Budget
- Sail and Power Fleet
