Benefits of Joining Ao Chalong Yacht Club

Sailing is fun to enjoy, practice and race with other people. ACYC is a community that you are welcome to be a part of. Becoming members of ACYC not only entitles you to great discounts on sailing courses, club race entry and on food and drinks at the restaurant, but gives you a chance to sail on your own accord and make a club community. Members are entitled to free boat hire which is a great opportunity to practice skills learnt in courses and helps make sailing an affordable and regular activity. The only catch is you must have a safety boat on watch when sailing to be ready to help when required. Safety boat training can be provided to members for free! This means once trained to drive the safety boat, people can get together with approved safety boat drivers to go for a sail. Please contact us to book as boats are subject to boat availability and there will be a small charge to cover fuel costs. Boat hire is available without approved safety drivers being available as the sailing school can offer an instructor for a fee.

Without members there is no club and the more members we have the more club activities we can do so come and join our growing community and help shape our club.

Contact us to get involved!

 

In September there will be 2 club sessions available to club members at a discounted rate of 900 THB per person.  The dates for these will be:

  • 14th September 13.30-17.00 and
  • 28th September 09.30-12.30.

There are limited spaces available so we recommend booking in advance.  Non members will be able to attend these sessions but won’t be eligible for the discounted rate, they will be charged at the normal rate of 1300 THB per session.  These dates are also club racing days, if you are interested in doing dinghy racing then please let us know so we can organize a start for you.
