Welcome to the Costa Blanca Yacht Association
The Costa Blanca Yacht Association (CBYA), is centered around Jávea (Xàbia), Moraira and Calpe, a beautiful coastal area, midway between Valencia and Alicante, Spain.
We welcome boat owners, of any shape or size and all those interested in sailing or motor cruising, whether a beginner, or an experienced Yacht Master who has traveled the world.
With over 200 members, of mixed nationalities, the emphasis of the club is to give you a chance to get out on the water, sail, motor cruise, compete, socialise and generally share boating experiences.
You are very welcome to view. This website is our 'Club House' and 'Notice Board'.
Please go to the Events Calendar & Blogs page, to see our upcoming sailing and social events.
