SYC has something for everyone!

Here are some of events:

  • Dinners

  • Oyster roasts

  • Themed parties

  • Community event participation

  • Labor Day BBQ

  • Poker run – on the water

  • Scavenger hunts

  • And cruises to coastal destinations.

We do it all. This is where members volunteer to make each event extra special special. In addition to our boating focused events, we make sure we enjoy Southport and neighboring towns.  


SYC events are a great way to meet new people and develop friendships that last a lifetime!
