The Gstaad Yacht Club, a private members club, was founded in 1998 by a group of sailor enthusiasts with the vision to “create a unique global yacht club away from the waters, instead of another local club by the waters”. With its club facilities based in the Swiss mountains and in the beginning, very often acknowledged with surprise, the GYC developed to a club with over 400 members from more than 30 different countries and to a place where members and their guests love to meet. Members enjoy a unique network, year-round activities in the clubhouse and on the waters. The GYC supports sailing projects on all levels from juniors to professional sailors and it has become a solid force on the Swiss sailing scene and especially among Olympic sailing and the classic yachts.
