In 1891, a new club was founded, the Union des Yachts Français, Société d'Encouragement pour la Navigation de Plaisance. In 1907 the two clubs merged and were recognized by the International Yacht Racing Union (now the International Sailing Federation).
In 1993, as part of the Club's 125th celebrations, Maïté Etchechoury wrote "Yacht-club de France : sous-série GG7 : répertoire numérique détaillé."
Among other competitions, the Yacht Club de France, together with the Yacht Club Italiano, runs the Giraglia Rolex Cup regatta from Saint Tropez, past Giraglia (the northernmost point of Corsica), to Genoa, Italy.
