Performance Clinics are for sailors who have mastered basic skills; however, novices are welcome to participate under special arrangement. Participating in clinics is a great way to perfect skills needed to pass the ASA 101 test or higher. Meet other sailors who are Members of our Community Sailing Program and are checked out on LAYC Community Boats. Sail together and consider applying for Membership yourself.

There is a fee of $10 for LAYC Members and $20 for non-members.

In order to participate in Performance Clinics, we ask that you RESERVE YOUR SPOT at least 48 hours in advance unless approved by the instructors. No refund for cancellations. Non-members are welcome to participate in LAYC Performance Clinics. Clinics start promptly at the clubhouse at 10:00. Please plan on arriving a little early. Sessions generally go until 1:30. Times may change depending on the weather. Participants will be notified 24 hours in advance of changes. PFDs are available and must be worn at all times. All those sailing MUST have a liability waiver on file. Forms are available at and at the front desk.
