LA Yacht Club's Meetup groups are inclusive for families, couples or singles interested in learning how to sail. I started this group because I am a community sailing member at Los Angeles Yacht Club®. I’m excited to have more people join the fun here in San Pedro, but first things first. Some of you may not know the first thing about sailing. A prime purpose of the club is to introduce people to the sport and to develop their skills. As such, the club is a certified American Sailing Association (ASA) school. So we thought, hey let’s have a day time class to introduce families a chance to learn about sailing. We can relax at the clubhouse, take in the views, and enjoy a little nosh while we learn some basics. (No host bar) You will be greeted at the club by Julie Rico
We would love to meet you. Our e-mail address for more information is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Club Information: Los Angeles Yacht Club, San Pedro, California The Los Angeles Yacht Club was established in 1901 by a group of avid sailors and has continuously been an active club of sailors, racing enthusiasts, and community supporters.
Since 1906, LAYC has produced the biennial Transpacific Yacht Race (Transpac), which begins in San Pedro, California and ends off Diamond Head in Honolulu, Hawaii, a distance of 2,225 nautical miles (2,560 mi; 4,121 km). Transpac will take place again in 2016.
LAYC‘s working non-profit, the Los Angeles Sailing Foundation (LASF), is the charitable organization that has been established to support sailing and to promote stewardship of the marine environment. The Foundation reaches out to under-privileged youth and to those who would not normally have access to sailing in the surrounding community by offering sailing scholarships and education.
Howland’s Landing is LAYC’s facility at Catalina Island that is available year-round with mooring and recreational facilities on the beachside. The regular Wednesday white-table luncheons offer expert speakers who address issues of interest to the yachting community. Friday night Women-On-Water regattas happen year round to get boats out on the water.
