Georgia Sailing Clubs
Atlanta Yacht Club, north of Atlanta on Lake Allatoona, has been home to small-boat pleasure and racing sailors for over sixty years. On weekends from late March to November, you will find our shores dappled with one-design sailing craft heading out for an afternoon on the water with friends and family. Whether they come for friendly (but first-rate) 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.

Lake Mayer is the main SSC facility and continues to be a great location for beginners, both young and old, to get their feet wet and learn to sail through our Saturday lessons or summer camp program. It also helps host our high school sailing and serves as training grounds for our US Sailing instructors course.
Our fleet at Lake Mayer includes (12) Optimist dinghies, (7) 420’s, (6) Sunfish, and (2) Harpoon day sailors. This fleet is used throughout the year to support our instructional programs. We also have an outreach facility in Sunbury, Georgia, located just south of Richmond Hill. This outreach facility supports the high school and middle school programs south of the Savannah area. This open water location is used for more advanced racing clinics and is continually being developed.
Through the generous help of Sail Harbor Marina in Wilimington Island, the SSC is able to host many of their regattas on the Wilmington River, adjacent to the marina and manages instruction/charter services for our Colgate 26. Powered by Free Website Templates
