Commodore's Message

John Schneider

Welcome to the 66th year of the North Lake Yacht Club. NLYC presently has over 500 members (180 families) with a beautiful clubhouse, waterfront, and grounds for hosting regattas and year-round member social events.

 It is my pleasure to serve as your Commodore. We are grateful to have the benefit of a beautiful clubhouse and grounds. This is a direct result of the generosity and hard work of many past Club members. My focus, and the focus of the North Lake Yacht Club Board, is to promote the utilization and appreciation of these assets.

The North Lake Yacht Club Board of Directors, and the many volunteers of the North Lake Yacht Club and North Lake Sailing School, have planned many events for the upcoming year. In addition to the numerous social events, we will be hosting two regattas. The strength of our Yacht Club resides in the talents and energy of our members. Whether you are a sailor, boater, fisherman, paddler or floater, we look forward to your participation in these events.

Looking forward to seeing you on the lake,

John A. Schneider

NLYC has social events for all ages!

North Lake Sailing School

The North Lake Sailing School conducts a variety of classes using professional instructors. Children 16 years and under attend bi-weekly sessions to learn basic sailing skills, boating safety, and racing techniques. Much of the class time involves on-the-water training. Camp Sail-away is also offered as an alternative week long session. Private lessons are available for adults as well.

The NLSS has a fleet of sailboats that are available to beginning sailors before they commit to purchasing their own boat. The NLSS is a  501C3 organization.
