Congratulations Life Members

Welcome Associate Members



Due to increases in COVID-19 transmission, we have been directed by the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to cease alcohol sales to comply with Governor Newsom’s and the California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH’s) new directives which include ABC licensed businesses in Contra Costa County.

CDPH’s July 1, 2020, directive states that it is effective immediately and the affected businesses (which includes our club – Type 51) shall cease specified operations for a period of at least three (3) weeks.

The specified operations are: We must discontinue all indoor and outdoor liquor sales.

In compliance with the above, I have directed Bar Manager Buckley to remove access to all liquor from the Clubhouse bar and the BBQ area.

In addition and as a reminder, the only areas where personal alcohol may be consumed is on our docks, inside of personal boats, personal RVs, and in cabins.

We must follow ABC rules and regulations or be at risk of losing our license.

Effective immediately and during the "Shelter in Place" order, only Club members and their immediate family members may access the Club property. Our vendors and boat mechanics will still be allowed access.

Sportsmen family,

Every day, more and more people are coming down with a cold and the flu – including the coronavirus. School districts are closed for the duration and public events have been cancelled. This is true also for Sportsmen Yacht Club events.

The Board will do whatever we can to keep our members safe while at the Club. Many of our members are within the age range where getting a virus could be very dangerous for them.

Please observe the recommended "social separation distance" while aboard the Sausalito.

If you find you’re not feeling well, please stay home and take care of yourself!  If you’re running a fever or think you need to be tested, please contact your doctor.

We want to do our best to ensure our Club is a safe place for our members. We are going to try to keep a supply of hand sanitizers available for you to use while at the Club.

Commodore Draper & SYC Board
