Upcoming Clinics 

Smallboat Introduction to Sailing Series

The Austin Yacht Club offers a Smallboat Introduction to Sailing Series during the the fall and spring. During this class, students sail in our fleet of Flying Juniors (FJs). This class is geared towards adults, and is open to all skill levels, from beginners with no sailing experience to more accomplished sailors just looking to experience dinghy sailing. For Junior Sailing information, please visit our Junior Sailing Program page. Our Sailing Series classes are held Sunday mornings from 11am-1pm. Each series will feature five days of sailing.


American Sailing Association (ASA) Certification

The Austin Yacht Club is an accredited American Sailing Association (ASA) School. Through ASA, our certified instructors can provide you with a progressive sailing certification experience.
