Alamitos Bay Yacht Club Junior Sailing

Our mission is to provide a safe and fun learning environment that will instill, in our sailors, a lifelong love for the sport of sailing.

Ultimately we will promote regional, national, international amateur sailing, maritime education and competition. We endorse an interest in sailing education and maritime arts and science.


  • Respect of the sport and of others in the sport
  • Sportsmanship and the Corinthian Spirit
  • Self-confidence and personal development
  • Teamwork on and off the water
  • Healthy competition, even at the highest level

Those participants dedicated to the program will have experiences that will benefit them for a lifetime. All ABYC coaches will share their knowledge and experience through a structured curriculum. Follow the link to the Programs we offer or simply browse through our tabs at the top of the page. Also, be sure to like us on Facebook and check us out on YouTube.
