Reciprocity

Founded in 1913, the Oakland Yacht Club welcomes you. We offer reciprocal privileges and have formal agreements with a large number of yacht clubs worldwide. We enjoy the enviable reputation for hospitality and friendly atmosphere that we have maintained for the past 100 years, since the days when Jack London was a founding member.

Our clubhouse, built in 1990, is located in sunny Alameda and boasts some of the best weather in San Francisco Bay. It overlooks our 160ft. guest dock and our 200-vessel capacity marina. We offer regularly scheduled dinners on Friday nights, Wednesday lunch, and Sunday brunch, all prepared by our professional chef. We also enjoy a full social calendar of events and visitors are cordially invited to attend. For reservations for reciprocity berthing, events, and meals, please call 510-522-6868 Tuesday through Sunday or on the web at oaklandyachtclub.com.

OYC Members
The Oakland Yacht Club has formal reciprocal privilege agreements in place with a large number of yacht clubs in and around the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, the Delta Region and along the entire California coast line. Our agreements extend to the Pacific Northwest and other U.S. States, as well as Canada, Mexico and several other foreign countries.

Although the extent of privileges may vary slightly, generally an OYC member in good standing can expect to be allowed to use all of the welcoming club’s available facilities and services, including short term berthing, meal and bar service, and bathroom facilities.

Many clubs offer complimentary berthing for 1, 2 or 3 days. Be sure to check when you call the club to make your reservation. The Oakland Yacht Club asks that when a member visits a reciprocal club, that you use the restaurant and bar to support that club.
