Sailing on Lake Allatoona

Does your heart sing “Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum” on windy days?

If so, you’re probably a sailor.

When you want to get away from landlubbers who don’t have a clew, grab your winch and set sail for the nearest port on Lake Allatoona.  Aaaarrrrrghh, me hearties.

Talk Like a Pirate Day


Atlanta Yacht Club

Atlanta Yacht Club on Lake Allatoona has been home to small-boat pleasure and racing sailors for over sixty years. On weekends from late March to November, you will find our shores dappled with one-design sailing craft heading out for an afternoon on the water with friends and family. You might come for friendly (but first-rate) competition, sailing classes or just an opportunity to relax on the lake. We at Atlanta Yacht Club are united by our commitment to the family-friendly sport of sailing.

Windsong Sailing Academy

Windsong was incorporated in 1987 as an economical alternative to expensive commercial sailing schools. Over the years, Windsong’s success has been credited to the friendly personal staff and professional manner in which it conducts business.

Windsong, previously based on Lake Lanier, added a sailing facility on Lake Allatoona in 1993. By the end of ’93 Windsong was under contract to provide all sailing instruction throughout Cherokee, Cobb, DeKalb, Gwinnett, and Hall county parks and recreation centers. In 1994, Windsong became one of North America’s ten founding charter members of the U.S. Sailing Association commercial sailing division.  You will find many other accolades on Windsong’s website.
