In 1935, The Yacht Racing Association (YRA) was formed as an association of yacht clubs. In 1937, the Sun, Moon and Snipe
dinghy fleets formed an association that was formalized in 1938 as the Small Boat Racing Association (SBRA). It provided racing
for small one design dinghy and keelboat fleets on the protected waters of the Bay and the lakes of Northern California. The
YRA and the SBRA provided programs of racing that satisfied the yachting community for the next twenty years.
