San Diego Yacht Club is thrilled to announce their election into the Platinum Clubs of the World 2020-21 by the Club Leadership Forum. A highly respected and honored achievement, SDYC is among only 49 other yacht clubs from all around the world who were presented with Five Star Clubs of Excellence title.

SDYC has been a Platinum Club of America for the past 12 years. Throughout its existence, the San Diego Yacht Club has evolved from a small gathering of boating enthusiasts joining together in 1886 to a world-renowned yachting community recognized for its success in bay sailing, ocean racing, predicted log racing, cruising, angling, and its support of youth programs at all levels. Competitions have ranged from major National and World Championships to the Lipton Cup, from Junior Regattas to the Olympics, and from Classic yachts to the America's Cup. Training and racing programs are available for adults as well as juniors.

Accepting the award on behalf of the San Diego Yacht Club is General Manager Terry Anglin who was among the 100+ members voting on the top 50 yacht clubs. In a comment to the Club Leadership Forum, Anglin states: "Yachting is a global activity and lifestyle and SDYC was extremely excited when the Yacht Club classification was added to the 2020-21 Platinum Clubs of the World election. This Platinum Club of the World designation will assist in enhancing global relationships for Club Members and Club Managers of these clubs and we are very proud to be recognized with the finest Yacht Clubs around the world."

Gaining Platinum status, especially world-wide, is a pinnacle moment for the San Diego Yacht Club. When being considered as a Platinum club, the Club Leadership Forum asses all areas of the Club's operation including the history and tradition of the club, the membership, and amenities and facilities, the service standards, adaption to club evolution, management and operations, and overall experience.
