This is the big event of the AYC year, celebrating the improbability of a yacht club thriving in the middle of the Arizona desert since 1958.
Sail with us, over 200 sailors and “shore crew,” and 70+ boats. Sail under blue skies in front of the Black Mountains near Castle Hot Springs, Buzzard Neck and Humbug Bay. Celebrate with us under the stars, between the saguaro and ocotillo, with the burros and coyotes on Lake Pleasant, just 45 minutes northwest of Phoenix.
Watch this space as we set a date and develop details.
Besides being a fun regatta and major party, this is a fundraising project to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Over the years, this regatta has raised some $600,000 for LLS.
