Commodore's Message

I hope that everyone was able to have a great holiday season to cap off 2022. As we turn the page to 2023 I want to remind everyone who has not yet done so to please renew their memberships. There is one month left until the late fee takes effect so please act now.

While winter this year has been relatively mild thus far, we are still planning to have our Annual Ice Fishing Jamboree Sunday, January 29th. This is always a great event and a nice way to enjoy what winter has to offer on North Lake. While I am not much of a fisher myself, even I was able to haul in a nice catch last year. Mainly thanks to Scott Jankowski's expertise and some convenient timing with one of his tip ups as the event wrapped up.

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 socials and events section of the newsletter below to see what we have planned so far as well as areas we are looking for some additional volunteer support. Please talk to Chuck or I if you have any interest or questions about helping! 

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 lessons, one week camps, and one-day a week learn-to-sail classes for those kids involved in a number of other summer activities.

Sailing school is scheduled to begin the week of June 13th and online registration is open March 1st. Click on the link below to find out more about our class offerings:
