Lake Townsend Yacht Club continues to provide one of the best sailing programs in the state. In the past two years, over 120 people have been through our sailing instruction course. The Frostbite series, Summer Series, Mayor's Cup Regatta and Interclub Regatta provide racing opportunities every month of the year. A core group of cruising members have enjoyed weekend and day cruising at Belews Lake, Jordan Lake, Kerr Lake and on North Carolina's coastal waters.

Lake Townsend is one of the best inland sailing venues in the state. The restrictions on power boats ensure that sailboats never contend with choppy water created by skiers and jet skis. With our pontoon signal boat and two Carolina skiffs, we can set race courses to match the wind conditions and make racing safe and enjoyable. With strong fleet of Flying Scots and a handicap class with a good mixture of other mono-hulls and multi-hulls we offer very competitive racing and a variety of learning experiences for new sailors.

Please consider joining us in the fun! The low price of membership makes this an incredible opportunity. Contact our Membership Chairperson if you need further information or have any questions about the club.

We hope to see you soon at Lake Townsend.
