You may have heard about the City of Arlington cancelling our lease at Richard Simpson Park.  Well, we may not be there anymore, but we are definately operating and still supporing sailing at Lake Arlington in our new home located on the Fort Worth side of the lake.  The AYC has a rich heritage, and even though we may not be at our long time home at Richard Simpson Park, our members are dedicated to continuing racing and sailing on Lake Arlington!  You can read all about the ordeal below.

For Over 50 Years, the AYC has supported sailing on Lake Arlington, Texas

From Seasoned Racers to Beginners, all you need is an interest in sailing!

Founded in 1963, the AYC has been built up through many years of effort by people who enjoy the companionship of meaningful work ashore and keen competition on the water. 

Generations of families have supported our non-profit sailing organization focused on sailboat racing and the joys of sailing.  Our family friendly environment is ideal for one of the only sports today that you can actively participate with the entire family!

The AYC sponsores several regattas annually including the AYC Annual Regatta (multi-fleet) and Laserpalooza (Laser Class District 15 Circuit Stop)!

In addition to our regatta schedule, the AYC sponsors an active year round Sunday one-design racing program and Summer Wednesday Night Portsmouth racing.

Fleets include:

  • Lasers
  • MC Scows
  • Catalina 22
  • Day Sailer
  • Sunfish

We welcome you to come out for a visit and see if we might be a good place to call your sailing home.
