SAN DIEGO YACHT CLUB BECOMES NSHOF FOUNDING MEMBER

From the Commodore:

San Diego Yacht Club has joined other premier yacht clubs across the country and will become a Founding Member of the National Sailing Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is in the process of being built on the City Dock in down town Annapolis, Maryland. Staff Commodore Sandy Purdon currently serves on the Hall's Board of Directors and will be able to keep the Club membership appraised of programs and opportunities available as the Hall of Fame unfolds and they open to the public.

As a Founding Member, San Diego Yacht Club will be featured in the Hall of Fame with a direct link so that people from all over the United States can learn about our programs and the things that make us the best there is. We join fellow Founding Members New York Yacht Club, St. Francis Yacht Club, Annapolis Yacht Club, Eastport (Annapolis) Yacht Club, and Nantucket Yacht Club, as the first clubs to support this magnificent initiative. By doing this we continue to project San Diego Yacht Club's image across the sailing community and establish ourselves as the best yacht club in the country.

I appreciate your patience with the building projects going on as they grind to a close. The dining room and bar windows will open up again this weekend, so expect to come down and enjoy the views again as we finish up the Clubhouse projects. The sheet pile project has poured the last concrete and will be done April 9th, I am told, along with setting the ADA ramp. The eaves are scheduled to be completed before Opening Day. The new Maintenance building should be ready to move into by April 12. We will be doing some sidewalk work as we work to conform to required standards for handicapped persons. Again, we appreciate your indulgence as we move forward. Please don't let the work deter you from coming down and using the Club. It's a great place to be.

Commodore Bill Campbell

San Diego Yacht Club's facilities had humble beginnings in a number of locations, including an old ferry boat. SDYC has been at its present location on Point Loma since 1924. Its facilities operate year round and include 576 boat slips, dry storage for 161 boats, tennis courts, a swimming pool, picnic areas, a full service dining room, bar, banquet facilities, snack bar (summer only), gift shop, and an internationally renowned year-round Junior Program. Two-thirds of the members own boats. One-hundred employees maintain the Club facilities to serve the membership and their guests.
