If you want to race your own boat Seal Beach Yacht Club is the club for you. We are a major PHRF (Performance Handicap Racing Fleet) Regatta sponsor. Ask around the harbor to get an appreciation for the outstanding job our race committee does.
At a typical Seal Beach Yacht Club race there are 40 to 50 boats in 4 or 5 classes.
We sponsor 3 major series of races:
Saturday Sailors Series is 5 races from January through March. This will motivate you to get your boat out of the slip even on a cold winter’s day, but this is Southern California! No worries about ice or snow.
Our Pop-Top Series is on Thursday nights from May through September: 5 series, with 4 races per series for a total of 20 races. The burger bash and awards ceremonies are a must attend event (even if you didn’t race).
Sunday Sailors Series is 3 races in November and early December. A hearty group of racers participate and race for fun and trophies.
In addition, we sponsor the Night Point Fermin Race, co-sponsor the Seal Beach to Dana Point Race, co-sponsor the Outlaw Regatta; and host races for the SCYA Midwinter Regatta and in the Yacht Clubs of Long Beach Charity Regatta to raise funds for the Miller Children’s Hospital.
All boats participating in races must be members of a yacht club. Seal Beach Yacht Club has a unique Race Only membership for those yachtsmen who ONLY want to race their boat. Ask our membership person for more details.
