The San Juan Island Yacht Club is organized for the purpose of encouraging and supporting all forms of yachting in the Northwest, to bring Members together to share matters of common interest, and to promote safe and enjoyable boating. SJIYC is a cruising Club with over 300 active boaters. Our members travel as far north as Glacier Bay and south to the Gulf of California. We sponsor 8 to 10 local cruises each year along with the Shaw Island Classic sailboat race. Our clubhouse is located above the Port of Friday Harbor, 273 Front Street. 

The clubhouse is open to members, their guests, and reciprocal Yacht Club members every Friday from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. During the summer we are also open on Thursday from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. We are also open on Wednesday evenings from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
