At the core of BLYC is its commitment to fostering growth in the sport of sailing. There are many active racing and cruising fleets at BLYC -- from the adrenaline filled competition in the Lightning fleet (a racing class with over 15,000 boats worldwide) -- to the more gentile racing in one of our classic catboat fleets -- to the personal performance of the Sunfish fleet. Needless to say there is something for everyone who is interested in sailing regardless of your experience level. 

In addition to the regular intraclubs, each fleet hosts social events and year-end awards for the sailors.


Lightning/Catboat/Sunfish races begin at 1pm and crashboats should report by 12pm. Sunfish races begin at 11am and crashboats should report by 10:30am.

For more information, contact our Rear Commodore, Debbie Cano Hartman.
