Club History

Southern Yacht Club traces its history back to the clubs founding in the Gulf Coast, resort town of Pass Christian, Mississippi, in the year 1849. Only the venerable New York Yacht Club can document an earlier founding date. As such, SYC is proud to bear the mantle of the second oldest yacht club in the United States. Over the years, Southern Yacht Club sailors have won four Olympic medals and numerous national and international championships. Through more than 160 years of prosperity and adversity, the Southern Yacht Club has maintained a tradition of keen competition, sportsmanship and eponymous hospitality.
