Our Mission

The mission of the St. Petersburg Yacht Club is to encourage and support yachting, and provide a comfortable social environment for our members and guests, while preserving and enhancing the Club's traditions and prestige. 
 

A Brief History of Our Club


St. Petersburg's city fathers had ambitious plans for their commercial docks: create waterfront parks and a yacht club! The St. Petersburg Yacht Club was founded in 1909.  Following the reclamation and completion of the waterfront, the clubhouse was inaugurated on it's current site in 1917.  Two years later, 6 Fish Class sailboats were acquired and one design racing began. Several classes have returned annually for over 60 years. Offshore racing started with the Havana Race in 1930.  As forerunner of SORC, both brought sailors from all over the world to Tampa Bay.  The yacht club is famous for its standard of race management and events are run almost all year round.  Juniors learn to sail.  Sailors have represented the club all over the world.
