Welcome to the Catalina 22 Fleet! We’re delighted to have you with us, whether skipper, crew, cruising guest, race committee member, or discussion participant! Among AYC fleets the C22 is one of the more versatile designs, so our fleet members have a variety of interests. Many other boats are bigger, faster, lighter, or more trailerable – but with your C22 you can do many things. You can race one-design from the Club level to a national championship, cruise around Lake Travis, or trailer to racing and cruising elsewhere, and then you can sleep on board your Catalina 22. Skills learned in a C22 can be taken to many other boats. This is among the most successful keel boat designs, the latest “Sport” model is still being built, and there are many boats on the used market to choose from.
Best of all are the people of our fleet. We have sailors from very new to very experienced, on all parts of the racing spectrum from beginning to national champion, and of all interests including cruising, racing, teaching, partying, and “simply messing about in boats.” Sailors of all demographics share the same water and wind, and we are delighted to sail with them. Several of our members and alumni have cruised blue water, have served on the AYC Board, or have been well known in other fleets. Let’s go sailing!
