Fleets At AYC

AYC is proud to have the following fleets sailing at the club.

One-Design Keel Boats

Catalina 22 Fleet

The Catalina 22 is one of the more versatile designs among the fleets at AYC. 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, trailer to other racing and cruising places, and comfortably spend the night on board your boat. Skills learned in a C22 can be used on many other types of boats. It’s a great boat that can be enjoyed by everyone.

Ensign Fleet

The Ensign Fleet at AYC is a member of the Ensign Class Association. We have 15 Ensigns in our fleet. We race under One Design Rules in club series races and in regional and national Ensign class championships. In regatta racing the skipper has the option of racing one design or PHRF handicaps. Our fleet membership currently includes two Regional Champions and one National Champion.

South Coast 21 Fleet

The South Coast 21 is a Carl Alberg design. South Coast produced about 300 of these boats. There is an active racing fleet on Lake Travis near Austin, Texas.

Performance Racing Fleet

Within the Austin Yacht Club (AYC) racing is focused into five one-design fleets and three handicap fleets. The handicap fleets allow nearly every sailboat manufactured to race in a time adjusted (i.e.: handicap) competitive environment. The three handicap fleets are centerboard (non-ballasted) boats, ballasted or keel boats and multihull boats. The Keel Handicap Fleet or Keel Fleet establishes Local PHRF (Performance Handicap Racing Fleet) ratings to adjust elapsed racing times to allow different speed potential boats to race on an competitive basis. The Austin Yacht Club Keel Fleet is a member of US Sailing.
