Sailing / Yacht Club
The Austin Yacht Club is a private sailing club, founded in 1951 primarily for the purpose of promoting sailboat racing and sailboat racing related social activities and water sports on Lake Travis. AYC is located on 35 acres of lakefront property on the shore of Lake Travis, in the heart of the Texas hill country yet only 30 minutes from downtown Austin. Activities are organized year round, with racing of some kind almost every weekend and many weekday nights during the summer months. The club supports local high school sailing teams and hosts the University of Texas sailing team. The club also offers on-the-water and classroom-based training for members and non-members, including a kids' summer camp.
