SAN DIEGO YACHT CLUB BECOMES NSHOF FOUNDING MEMBER

From the Commodore:

“The mission of the San Diego Yacht Club is to encourage and foster interest in all aspects of yachting. We believe our support of the National Sailing Hall of Fame is consistent with this mission and we are pleased to be a Founding Member Yacht Club.
 
“The history and traditions of San Diego Yacht Club since our founding in 1886 are rich. Our racing sailors have distinguished themselves at all levels of competition including the Olympics, World Championships, and the America’s Cup. We are pleased that five Members are currently in the National Sailing Hall of Fame. Our Club excels in other areas as well, including cruising, angling, and our junior program.
 
“Perhaps our most important and enjoyable aspect is the camaraderie all Members enjoy at the Club and extend to our guests visiting from other clubs.”

Commodore John Laun
