2018 Y-flyer Nationals


Commodore's Notes

Notes from Commodore

Converting Novice Sailors to Active Ones

At sailing clubs around the country this summer, many will try sailing for the first time or work to advance their skill set.  Some will be hooked from the first experience, others will come to love the sport over time, and a few will complete a class or camp and decide sailing is not for them.  Those who are hooked from the beginning often love the freedom, challenge and exhilaration the sport provides.  I identify most with the group of sailors who live for racing and regatta weekends. 



2018 Y-flyer Championship

Sailors from the Atlanta Yacht Club (AYC) won the senior, women’s and junior divisions at the 2018 Y-Flyer National Championship, held July 9 – 13 at Harbor Island Yacht Club (HIYC) in Nashville. SAYRA Commodore Bryce Dryden and his crew Mandy Hofmeister, HIYC, won the 2018 Y-Flyer National Championship regatta, and twin sisters Lucy and Ellie Spearman, 15, won the 2018 Y-Flyer National Junior Championship. The girls were the top female finishers in the senior division (8th), earning them the Y-Flyer National Women’s Championship title as well.
