Consider being crew, taking our introductory racing class, or feel free to plunge in using your boat or an adopted boatHere’s an introduction to Lake Pleasant racing and information about racing at Tempe Town Lake. The procedures are a little different at each lake.

Do you have a cruising boat and consider yourself a cruiser? Then you might want to think about racing your cruising boat. There are many ways to get involved in AYC racing.

Over the years, AYC has been home to many skilled and knowledgeable racers. See their Racing Tips on this page as well as articles and videos from guest speakers such as North Sails Andrew Kerr and legend Dave Perry.

We have two scheduled race series at Lake Pleasant in the spring and fall of each year, plus the annual Birthday Regatta & Leukemia Cup in February. Small boat racing takes place Sunday afternoons at Tempe Town Lake, with races running nearly year-round. Race day start times vary by time of year, so racing ends near dusk.

Each Lake Pleasant series contains five race weekends, and we normally get in five-six races each weekend, depending on the wind. Races at Lake Pleasant begin at 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays and at 9 a.m. on Sundays. See the calendar for schedules.
