A Century of Service, 1921-2021 Centennial Celebration Southern California Yachting Association

SCYA and RACING

SCYA has been involved in the Southern California Yacht Racing scene (sail and power) since before our so far known dates for the Midwinters. Here is what it looked like to start a sailboat race off the coast of So Cal in 1919! SCYA’s history and knowledge of the sport will be built into a virtual hub of our experiences in these pages.

Check the links under SCYA HISTORY > SCYA & RACING to learn more. We invite all of you to contribute photos and stories for the history. This section is for racing events put on by SCYA. See the section Southern California boat racing for more and for other race history.
