Formed out of love for boating by a group of entrepreneurs, expatriates and sports enthusiast with a stupendous appetite for yacht racing, transforming Subic Bay as the Premier Yacht Racing Destination in the country.
Their unbridled passion and commitment have kept the sport alive and exciting in the country.
One of the notable advocacies of Subic Sailing Club aside from organizing sailing events in Subic Bay is the promotion of sailing through proper education and sail training through its IYFR Subic Sailing School. Combined with the support of several NGOs, Civic Organizations, Private Companies and sailors around the globe, the club was able to establish its grassroots program not only to promote sailing but to help ensure the future of yacht racing in the Philippines.
OUR QUEST FOR MARITIME HERITAGE
The club has evolved not just to become the paragon of the development of sailing in the country but also aims to raise the level of awareness and consciousness of every Filipino on our marine wealth and heritage.
Sailing is a sport where Filipinos can excel and be the best in the world. The Subic Sailing Club aims to spread the love of boating to the Filipinos and breed a new generation of Filipino sailors that will continue to give pride to our country and give honor to the countless Filipino seafarers around the world.

Come and visit us in Subic Bay and experience for yourself this wonderful sailing paradise.
All throughout history, Subic Bay has been a ship’s refuge that was most coveted by foreign powers like Spain, Great Britain, the United States, and Japan. From fishermen’s dinghies to Spanish galleons, from steamships to the most sophisticated warships, to the modern cruise ships and racing yachts, Subic Bay has provided them all a safe haven with its naturally deep harbor and protected coves.
Subic Bay, steeped as it is in the tradition of naval commerce and having played an important role in the maritime history of the Philippines, couldn’t be any more appropriate as the starting point for injecting awareness of the country’s maritime heritage, and the natural prowess of Filipinos as sailors and seafarers.
To raise awareness on the country's vast maritime domains and its potentials among Filipinos, the Subic Sailing Club has evolved not just to become the paragon of the development of sailing in the country but also aims to raise the level of awareness and consciousness of every Filipino on our marine wealth and heritage.
