Our club is devoted to the building and sailing of model yachts, both power and sail.  Whether you are a builder, sailor, or just curious about this interesting and beautiful hobby, all are welcome.  To view a video about our club click here.

Spreckels Lake and the San Francisco Model Yacht Club are special parts of the city’s long and colorful maritime history.  Established in 1898, the club is believed to be the oldest such organization in the United States.  Originally conceived to “… encourage model boating [free sailing],” the club’s 175 active members live across the U.S. and in Europe.  It now accommodates scale model, radio controlled sail, freesail, and power models and sponsors a wide variety of events throughout the year.

We are located in San Francisco’s historic Golden Gate Park at the 36th Avenue and Fulton Street entrance.  There we have a clubhouse and a lake, both of which are devoted to model yachting.
