The Navy Yacht Club Channel Islands (NYCCI) has evolved from the CBC Sailing Club first chartered in 1968.  From 1976 to 1997 we were known as the Channel Islands Naval Yacht Club. Then in 1998 we became the Navy Yacht Club Channel Islands.  We are a branch of the United States Naval Sailing Association (USNSA) with headquarters at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

The purpose of the USNSA and other affiliate branches around the world is to assist the United States Navy in organizing and maintaining a training and recreational sailing program.  As such we form the largest yacht club in the world with nearly unlimited reciprocal privileges in ports around the world.  NYCCI is cosponsored by the Naval Construction Battalion Center Port Hueneme and the Naval Air Weapons Station Point Mugu. 

We have an active cruising schedule and several other social functions including land cruises to Morro Bay and San Diego where we participate in the Gator Regatta (a yacht race between all of the Navy Yacht Clubs in Southern California).
