FLEET ACCESS

Reserving a Boat

 

Being a member of ABYC comes with the benefit of accessing Apalachee Bay Community Sailing's fleet of sailboats, which include keelboats and dinghies. These boats have enabled members to learn to sail and for those familiar with sailing to hone their team and match racing skills in regular practice and regattas.

 

The boats can be used for organized events or for a casual afternoon sail on a beautiful day.
