Throughout the year AYC has various social events outside of our Racing, Cruising and Education programs (which are social events in and of themselves).

The main one is our monthly meeting, held the second Tuesday of every month at Rolling Hills Golf Course – the Grill, located at 1415 N Mill Ave, Tempe, AZ 85281. Social Hour and dinner service start at 6 pm, and our program starts at 7 pm, so come are enjoy a meal with your friends, and then settle in for our awesome speakers’ series.

Another regular social gathering happens at Spinnaker Point, after racing on Saturday nights at Lake Pleasant. One of the fleets presents a post-race social event with munchies, and it kicks off a great discussion of why you blew the start on the last race.

The big racing event of the year is the Leukemia Cup & Birthday Regatta, where the Saturday night dinner and party is always a great get-together. Many folks come out just to party with us on that Saturday night!

We have several other events that are off the water as well. Our annual Campout is held as a getaway to the cool of the Coconino National Forest. We also have an annual Commodore’s Party in May that recognizes members who have won the club awards, and we seat the new year’s Board Members.
