Somerton Yacht Club

Somerton Yacht Club developed from the Broadway Yacht Squadron (or Broadway Sailing Club) that operated in thelate 1930's and early 1940's.  At the time, members sailed a variety of boats typically from backyard construction.  

Following World War II, the sailing community's desire for a more structured club resulted in the establishment of SYC and in the early 1950's, the existing facility on the Esplanade at Somerton was established. 

To this day, Somerton operates with a community and family focus sailing a variety of classes and is open to sailors of all levels of ability.
