The records of the Southern Yacht Club trace its history back to the club’s founding in the Gulf Coast resort town of Pass Christian, Mississippi in the year 1849. Only the venerable New York Yacht club can document an earlier founding date. As such, SYC is proud to bear the mantle of second oldest yacht club in the United States. It all began with the first club house constructed in 1872. Later a second clubhouse built in 1899 was extensively enlarged and renovated in 1920, but by 1949 it had deteriorated and was replaced by a modern, concrete and steel structure. This third building was expanded in the 1960’s and 1980’s and another major expansion was to begin in 2005.
