The Shore Acres Yacht Club is located in a beautiful section of Barnegat Bay, at the mouth of Kettle Creek. SAYC is one of several clubs in the Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association (BBYRA). Shore Acres Yacht Club provides our fleet with 29 weekends of structured racing throughout the spring, summer, and fall along with several regattas hosted annually.
Contact us at any time if you're interested in stopping by for a race. If you're looking to jump on a boat as crew, tune up for the next regatta, or simply take in the racing, outsiders are always welcome.
SAYC has a team of Certified Sailing Instructors dedicated to teaching basic sailing skills while focusing on personal development, self-confidence and self-esteem.
Classes are divided by skill level ranging from Beginner to Advanced. Full or Half day classes available.
Today the club serves its very active and diverse membership needs by providing club programs, events and facilities.
The clubhouse is open nightly, Wednesday through Sunday, although the boardwalk, upstairs of the clubhouse, and grounds are accessible to members at any time. See our calendar page for minimum hours. Members can enjoy the many social events offered that the club is known for hosting.
Due to the high volume of demand, effective July 1, 2021 new incoming applications for membership will be placed on a waiting list and evaluated on a month by month basis. We are no longer accepting Associate applications at this time.
When we do not have events planned for our membership, our facilities are available for rent for member and member-sponsored celebrations.
