The International Catalina 30 Association (IC30A) is a non-profit volunteer owner organization established in 1974 as a community for anyone interested in owning, maintaining, cruising, racing, or simply adoring the one-design Catalina 30 masthead sloop designed by Frank Butler and manufactured by Catalina Yachts of Woodland Hills, CA. Catalina Yachts has introduced the Catalina 309 in 2005 as an update to the original C30 and since then we expanded our our community to include its enthusiasts. Our leadership team represents many decades of Catalina 30 ownership and joy!
The association is dedicated to quality boating and lifetime enjoyment for its members and to maintaining value through one-design standards and specifications for the Catalina 30 and 309 yachts. The membership activities are predominately cruising, and we are technically minded and maintenance oriented.
The association promotes safe boating, seamanship, good fellowship, enjoyment and enhancement of the Catalina 30 yacht through cruising, racing and social events on local, regional, national and international levels. We sanction regional, inshore and offshore racing of the C30/C309 in one-design and handicap regattas.
The IC30A is the largest world-wide yacht owners association with over 44 regional fleets and members throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan and Australia.
