Port Captain and Slip Reciprocity Agreement

Randy Popperwell is our Port Captain 626-374-2206 If you plan on visiting SYC Yacht club by sea, please call him ahead of time to be sure there is space for your boat at our docks. We welcome visitors who are members of other yacht clubs that have a current reciprocity agreement with Shoreline Yacht Club who would like to stay the night. In order to use the slip reciprocity you are required to complete a
SYC Reciprocity Agreement which is located in the link. 

What To Do In Making Your Slip Reservation:

1. Please email a signed copy of reciprocity agreement to the PORT CAPTAIN which you will find on the Officers & Directors page  along with a copy of your current registration or documentation, current insurance which lists your boat HIN, document or registration number.
2. A copy of you driver’s license 
3. A copy of your yacht club membership card.

Most weekends are busy so the earlier you can make reservations the greater the chance we will have available slips for your stay. Hope to see you soon.


Approach By Sea

Plan Your Trip

To plan your trip to Shoreline, refer to NOAA Chart 18749 or your equivalent navigation chart depicting the San Pedro Bay. The Downtown Long Beach Marina is located north of the Queen Mary and west of Island Grissom. A short breakwater protects the marina entrance. Per the above pictorial charts, Shoreline Yacht Club is located between the head of gangways X and Y.

The San Pedro Bay contains the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Heavy ship traffic is constant and caution should be taken when transiting this area. Always check the current Local Notice to Mariners to verify what construction and/or dredging operations may be in progress and plan your course accordingly.


Welcome! We hope you enjoy your stay with us.


NOTE: The fuel dock in the Marina supplies both gasoline and diesel fuels.
