Be a Member of Lake Townsend Yacht Club!
The Benefits of Membership
Competitive Fun Sailing
On the second Saturday of each month (March-October) our sailing club holds our regular Lake Township Yacht Club race series.
This is 'around the buoys' racing where courses are laid out and there is a Signal Boat (pontoon boat) carrying the Race
Committee as well as one or more safety boats to help with setting course markers (bouys) and serve to assist any
sailboats who encounter issues on the water that the skipper and/or crew are ill equipped to manage.
Typically, there are three races run on each race day.
The skipper's meeting is typically held ashore at 10:30 am with the first race of the day set to start at noon. Details can be found in the Sailing Instructions and Course Diagrams available online. Socials are held after the racing March through October.
Social Fun Sailing
On the fourth weekend of each month (March-October) we have a Sailibration! There is no set time or agenda. This weekend is for daysailing and cruising just for fun. Club members are there who may either invite you to go sailing on their boat or give you advice about sailing your boat or a rental. It's a great opportunity to sail on different types of boats to see what suits you best, and a good time to practice and improve your sailing or racing skills. The best way to learn is to be onboard with one of our experienced skippers.
