Welcome to the Costa Blanca Yacht Association
The Costa Blanca Yacht Association (CBYA), is centered around Jávea (Xàbia), Moraira and Calpe, on the beautiful Spanish, Costa Blanca (White Coast) area, midway between Valencia and Alicante.
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.
We are a lively club, with over 240 members, of mixed nationalities and all ages, the emphasis of the club, is to give all members a chance to get out on the water. To learn to sail, Day sail, Charter-Cruise, Motor Cruise, Compete in Regattas, Match Race, or simply to socialise and generally share boating experiences.
You are very welcome to browse. This website is our 'Club House' and 'Notice Board'.
Please go to the Events Calendar & Blogs page, to see our diary of upcoming sailing, charter-cruising and regattas, plus all our social events.
