Tucked away in beautiful Point Loma, the San Diego Yacht Club is consistently ranked among the top 5 yacht clubs in the Nation and is recognized by the Club Leadership Forum as one of the finest facilities of its kind in the world.
Throughout its existence, the San Diego Yacht Club has evolved from a small gathering of boating enthusiasts joining together in 1886 to a world-renowned yachting community recognized for its success in bay sailing, ocean racing, predicted log racing, cruising, angling, and its support of youth programs at all levels. Competitions have ranged from Major National and World Championships to the Lipton Cup, from Junior Regattas to the Olympics, and from Classic yachts to the America’s Cup. Training and racing programs are available for adults as well as juniors.

There were 140 teams that completed SDYC’s signature Hot Rum Series over three races (November 4, 18, and December 2) this year. Aside from some light winds, the weather was decent and sunny during all three races. Similar to past years, the race utilized a pursuit start so boats could finish around the same time and head back to the docks for the infamous after parties.
In addition to winning Fleet 1, Jim and Heather Madden and their team on Stark Raving Mad VII (Swan 601) took the overall 2017 Hot Rum Series title. At this point, the Maddens have made winning this race an annual routine. Most recently they won the 2016 Hot Rum Series on Stark Raving Mad VII and the 2015 Hot Rum Series on the Ranger 33 Raving Madness.
Other fleet winners included Dennis Conner’s NM43 Menace (Fleet 2), Joe Markee’s Swede 55 Ohana (Fleet 3), Fabian Gomez-Ibarra’s J/70 Vagazo (Fleet 4), Karen Busch’s Ericson 35 mk2 Wani Racing (Fleet 5), and Mick Moore’s Ranger 37 Masquerade (Fleet 6).Read Article >>
