The Southern California Yachting Association (SCYA) was founded as an association in Los Angeles in 1921 to promulgate yacht
racing rules and promote wider participation in yachting activities. Its articles of incorporation were adopted in 1922 and
later revised with the addition of by-laws in 1938. SCYA became a nonprofit corporation in 1950 or 1951. By 1953 the association
represented 28 member clubs spanning from Ventura to San Diego counties. As of 2000, the association boasts over 80 member
clubs. Further information concerning the SCYA can be found on their Web site.
