West Coast Yacht Club (WCYC)

West Coast Yacht Club is a cruising club with cruises and events scheduled throughout the year. Sailing members can enter any Southern California Yachting Association (S.C.Y.A.) race under our burgee. Our Members are very active, participating in cruises and various other activities on the water, guaranteeing that you will get more use out of your boat, whether sail or power, by joining WCYC. In July 1931, eight young men decided to form a yacht club. These boating enthusiasts constituted the charter membership of the present WCYC. Since four of the young men were building boats in their backyards, it was inevitable that the burgee should have a sawhorse as it's keynote. The colors they chose were a combination of those used by the University of Southern California, hence a blue sawhorse was superimpose on a yellow and red field. Since the inception of The WCYC, its burgee has been flown by members on cruises to many of the romantic ports on the Pacific and The Atlantic Oceans and The Caribbean and Mediterranean Seas, including such places as Alaska, New Zealand and The Panama Canal.



There are big ships and small ships, but the best ship of all is FRIENDSHIP!

Thinking About Buying or Selling a Boat? Contact Pete at Dick Simon Yachts to Get the Best Deal!

Pete Coyle, West Coast Yacht ClubAs a member of West Coast Yacht Club, Pete Coyle can help you not only find your dream boat, but can assist you in becoming a member of the most exciting yacht club in California!

You can call him directly at 949-424-4201 to get connected with any boat for sale around the world. He's licensed to sell any yacht on the worldwide MLS.

In 2012 Pete retired from a very successful sales career in a different industry. He was successful because he ALWAYS put his customers needs first! Pete has been into boating since he was 20 and, after retiring, was really looking forward to spending more time at the harbor and on his boat. But after a year off, he got bored. So he took the California Boat Salesman’s license exam and joined the great team here at Dick Simon Yachts.

In Pete’s words “ now I really love what I am doing again” and you can’t get the smile off his face! With the Dick Simon team backing, he now has the knowledge and the industry resources to find you absolutely the perfect boat to fit your needs and your budget. So whether buying or selling please call Pete at 949 424 4301.
