Alameda Yacht Club Closed until further notice.

Dear members;


In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the recent Shelter In Place mandate by the Alameda County Department of Health, the club will be closed effective immediately. 

Although we are not considered to be a “bar”, and we are a private club, we have been instructed by the Health Department that if we remain open, we are in direct violation of the ACHD ‘Shelter in place order’. This Order is a legal Order issued under the authority of California law and we are required to comply, it is a crime (a misdemeanor) not to follow. 

Oakland and Encinal yacht clubs have already closed, and others will soon follow.


As this is an evolving situation,  we will continue to monitor the Alameda Department of Health ‘Shelter in Place order’, and update the members accordingly.


Thank you for your understanding and everyone please stay safe and healthy.
