Commodore's Message

Welcome to North Lake Yacht Club!

2023 marks the 70th anniversary of North Lake Yacht Club. Whether you are a long time member, past member, new to the lake, or interested in becoming a member, we would be happy to hear from you and look forward to seeing you around the club and on the water this summer.

Our yacht club seeks to offer a variety of events throughout the summer and offseason in order to bring together North Lake residents and off lake yacht club members. 

Chuck has been working very hard with myself and the board to plan another great spread of events in 2023. Please take a look at the upcoming social events below and in future emails/announcements to make sure you are not missing out on the fun.

The club is always looking for feedback and volunteers. Please talk to Chuck or I if you have any interest or questions about helping! Any questions or concerns can be sent to

Here's to year 70!

North Lake Sailing School

Know anyone interested in learning how to sail? North Lake Sailing School teaches sailing to kids ages 5 – 16 as well as Adults. Students do not need any previous experience and can start for the first time at any age within that range. In fact, they do not need to live on the lake either! Grandchildren, cousins, friends are all welcome to register.

Sailing school is a great way for the kids to enjoy the daily pleasures of lake living. We offer summer long classes as well as one-, two- and three-week camps for those kids that want to try it out or are involved in a number of other summer activities.

Sailing school is scheduled to begin the week of June 12th and online registration is open March 1st. Click on the link below to find out more about our class offerings:
