Membership in Atlanta Yacht Club is available to all persons with a racing sailboat or an interest in sailing. Preference is given to those interested in racing, especially in Thistles, Snipes, Y-Flyers, Flying Scots, and Lasers, since we have fleets of thirty or more of each of these boats already in existence at AYC. New members are encouraged to affiliate with one of our fleets, if only to get their feet wet and learn about the different kinds of boats. Members who do not have a boat but do have an interest in sailing are always welcome as crew and are encouraged to take adult sailing classes, which teach the fundamentals of sailing, seamanship and water safety as well as racing skills.
A prospective member must be sponsored and co-sponsored by two club members, then interviewed by our membership committee and approved by the general membership.
