Situated on Lake Allatoona, Atlanta Yacht Club has been home to small-boat pleasure and racing sailors for over 70 years. From late March to November, our shores are dappled with one-design sailing craft heading out for an afternoon on the water with friends and family.
Whether they come for friendly competition, sailing classes, or just an opportunity to relax with a day on the lake, what binds our members and families to AYC is their commitment to the sport of sailing and their choice to spend their leisure time in an activity where everyone in the family can “play”.
The Atlanta Yacht Club is home to several active one-design racing fleets: Snipe, Thistle, Y-Flyer, Flying Scot, Laser, and Sunfish. The Junior Yacht Club trains in 420s and Optimist prams. The club also hosts fleet-sponsored national regattas throughout the year. We are known for our competitive racing and our hospitality!
