Welcome to the Arizona Yacht Club!
The Arizona Yacht Club has enabled sailing in the desert since 1958. Most of our sailing is in the Phoenix area at Lake Pleasant and Tempe Town Lake but we’ve been known to proudly fly our burgees around the world.
If you’re new, there are many great ways to learn more about our club. I encourage you to write to our Membership Directors, John and Dianna, join us for our entertaining and informative monthly meetings, and read Sr. Staff Commodore Mike Ferring’s New Guy’s Guide that has a boatload of really useful information (right down to menu recommendations). Recently, Sailing World magazine wrote a wonderful five-page article about our 54th annual Birthday Regatta. We’re honored and proud, but not surprised, that a national magazine found our events to be well run, competitive and (most importantly) fun!
To our more than 210 existing member families: I’m committed to maintaining and improving our quality AYC programs and equipment, as you’ve come to expect.
