Atlanta Yacht Club


Established 1950

Situated on Lake Allatoona, Atlanta Yacht Club has been home to small-boat pleasure and racing sailors for 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. Among those, we are proud to say, the Snipe, Thistle and Y-Flyer fleets are the largest fleets within each of their class organizations.  The fleets host the largest fleet-hosted regatta within their class: Snipe Fleet 330's Halloween Regatta, Thistle Fleet 48's Dixie Regatta, and Y-Flyer Fleet 1's Beers Regatta. We are known for our competitive racing and our hospitality!
