The Tampa Bay social scene would not be complete without the St. Petersburg Yacht Club. Our major events, such as the New Year's Eve Gala and the Commodore's Ball, are highlights of the social season. Less formal themed events, as well as the monthly Birthday Bash, are held regularly and are very popular.
The SPYC has two spectacular locations to dine. At the Downtown Clubhouse, members enjoy their options of either casual or formal dining; combined with the relaxation of the SPYC Heritage Lounge. The ambiance combined with spectacular water views make dining a memorable occasion every time! At the Beach Clubhouse, members enjoy a fantastic view of the ocean completed with a peaceful atmosphere.
As one of the founding members of the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs, our members have reciprocal privileges with over 35 yacht clubs around Florida. An enticing benefit for those visiting other Council clubs by boat is the availability of a slip for the member's vessel, with the first night being complimentary.
Yachting activities are a major focus of the St. Petersburg Yacht Club. Over the years, many great regattas have been hosted by our club, including the SORC races and the St. Petersburg to Havana races which were started in the 1930s. The prestigious Regata del Sol al Sol, from St. Petersburg to Isla Mujeres, Mexico, has been running continuously since 1968.
