The Yachting Association of Sri Lanka (YASL) is a yacht club in Colombo, Sri Lanka. It was formerly known as Colombo Sailing Club.[1]

This club has seen its activity much reduced during the past three decades owing to the civil war in the island. Even so the YASL manages to organize regattas regularly, like the Janashanthi Sailing Nationals.[2] In July 2004 the Yachting Asoociation of Sri Lanka revived the Tri-nation Regatta, in which yachts from India and Pakistan compete with local yachts.[3] Nationals were held on January 2012.

The YASL has a sailing school and a small Optimist fleet.[4]
