What's Included

The Austin Yacht Club's Junior Sailing Camp, located on beautiful Lake Travis, is a unique summer sailing experience for kids ages 8-16. Throughout your camper's week at AYC, they will learn and practice fundamental skills aboard our fleet of Optimists, Picos, Lasers, Sunfish, and Flying Juniors. With a camper to counselor ratio of 4 to 1, you can rest assured that your child will enjoy the exciting sport of sailing in a safe environment. Our camp runs Monday-Friday from 9:00-5:00 with an optional early drop-off and late pick-up hour available free of charge. Through a combination of classroom discussion, land activities, on the water drills, and games our campers gain the skills necessary to become life-long sailors! Special activities include racing, destination sailing, keel boat rides, and wind surfing. 2015 Fees:* Non-Member: $480.00 Member: $395.00** *A $50.00 discount will be given for multi-session and multi-child registrations.

About This Organizer

Since being founded in 1951, AUSTIN YACHT CLUB is the place in Central Texas where members and guests can find a fun, uniquely Austin version of what a “Yacht Club” should be: A great community of sailing enthusiasts with excellence in sailing skills, racing, and training

AYC’s facilities offer our members fabulous access to the main basin of Lake Travis – on the +30 acre grounds, wet and dry slip storage, an inviting pool and a cozy clubhouse.

AYC’s programs and events include junior sail training for our youth and adult sail training led by a full-time Sailing Director. Camps and clinics offer a wide range of choices from Learn-To-Sail classes to Racing Seminars. Many of these programs are free or discounted for AYC members, and open to non-members. They typically are taught by members who have world class cruising and racing experience.

AYC’s annual racing calendar is full of choices and takes seriously our club tradition of being a year-round sport – starting with the first event, The Red Eye Regatta, held on January 1st. Whether it is the Friday Night Beer Can, Wednesday Night Laser/Sunfish, Regular Weekend Series or the annual Club Regatta’s – like Turnback Canyon or Governors Cup – everyone, from new racers to national champions, enjoys testing their sailing skill on beautiful Lake Travis.

Members of AYC are our biggest asset and have a long tradition of volunteerism – this spirit strengthens the sense of community and keeps our cost structure affordable. Whether it is a club work party or one of the Club’s numerous social gatherings – our members are always willing to pitch in to make sure all feel welcome and leave with great memories.
