With their convenient proximity to the ocean, both Newport Beach and Corona del Mar are ideal locations for yacht clubs, something that obviously those clubs agree with, since there are several in the area. A list of the many yacht clubs and their contact information follows below.
NBYC Members may also participate in a wide variety of nautical activities through the Club’s close affiliations with local and national yachting associations. Members receive free annual boat inspections as well as opportunity to attend nautical education classes and/or participate in sailing and power boating races, overnight boating adventures and more.

. • Balboa Yacht Club
In 1922, when Newport Harbor was more shoals and sandbars than open water, the Southland Sailing Club, soon renamed the Balboa Yacht Club, was formed by a small group of sailors wanting an active organization with an emphasis on family sailing. From its beginnings in a small wooden structure on open, sandy Balboa Peninsula, BYC has evolved to become one of southern California’s most prestigious yachting organizations.

In 1958, ten yachtsmen put up $100 each and founded the Bahia Yacht Club, based in minimal leased facilities on the grounds of the Balboa Bay Club. The initials BYC were the same as an already established club in the harbor, so the word Corinthian was added to avoid duplication of initials. In the early years, the club consisted mainly of a very active small-boat racing fleet and an enthusiastic group of cruising boats – power and sail. Most BCYC regattas concentrated on small boats until the idea of racing 10-meter boats on a boat-for-boat basis was advanced. Although class racing is commonplace now, it was a daring concept in 1963. The ever-expanding BCYC membership can be justly proud of its facilities and members who carry the burgee, while racing and cruising, to distant parts of the world.

• Newport Harbor Yacht Club
The history of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club, established in 1916, has been intertwined with the development of the city of Newport Beach and its world-renowned yachting and recreational harbor. Since 1919 the club’s permanent home has been its historic-landmark front pavilion. The picturesque clubhouse has been remodeled and enlarged but never replaced. Dr. Albert Soiland was the Norwegian-born founder and first commodore of the yacht club. Sharing Soiland’s vision were the founders of the new city of Newport Beach, incorporated in the summer of 1906 with a year-round population of 230 people.

It was incorporated in the state of California on January 23, 1967. The ALYC is the only American Legion yacht club in the world. Since its humble beginnings in 1966, the ALYC has indeed grown and flourished to become an outstanding and recognized member of the Southern California yachting community.
