"one of the most historically-significant organizations in Southern California.”

1903 - The first official yacht race in Southern California is run between Brighton Beach to Point Fermin. This was almost ten years before the completion of the San Pedro Breakwater.
1906 - SCYC stages the first running of the Transpacific Race, known today as Transpac.
1906 - South Coast Yacht Club is relocated to what is now 22nd Street Park.
1936 - Los Angeles Yacht Club and California Yacht Club shared a clubhouse until LAYC moved into its New England-style clubhouse on Terminal Island's Fish Harbor.
