Not an exclusive or expensive sailing club!

We are a very friendly, diverse group of people who enjoy cruising and racing small to medium size sailboats on Lake Townsend. You do not need to own a boat to join the club or to go sailing with us.

On September 27, 1977 a few sailing enthusiasts met with city officials of the Parks and Recreation Department and Water and Sewer Department to present a proposal for formation of the Lake Townsend Yacht Club. The objective of the club is to promote sailing and to establish and maintain a club for athletic, recreational and social purposes. Through the continued cooperation and support of the city and club members, LTYC continues to be one of the most successful in the state. Races are held monthly throughout the year as well as a number of daysailing and cruising events.

The premier racing event of the year is the Mayor's Cup Regatta which is held in June. There are usually forty or more boats entered by skippers from all over the state. Over the years, the club has sponsored a number of activities for nonmembers and the community in general - such as, sailing days for the Special Populations, open house and sailing seminars.
