Commodore's Message

Marilyn Guenther

Welcome to the 68th year of our North Lake Yacht Club.  I’m honored to be your Commodore, and I am pleased to have such a talented and committed Board of Directors to represent over 500 members (200 households) in our Yacht Club.  The long-term vision of our past leaders, along with generous donors and the hard work of dedicated members, provided us with an outstanding clubhouse to host sailing events, to gather among friends, and to instruct sailors of all ages and experience levels in our North Lake Sailing School.   

We can show appreciation for their work by putting the facilities to good use, respecting and taking care of the club, and contributing time and effort to NLYC. It is the motivated and hard working volunteers that make our Club a continued success. Join the experience and share with your neighbors to encourage involvement. Together we make it work!

During this coming year, the Board of Directors will work to revive social and sailing activities after a difficult year, reconnect both seasoned members as well as welcome new member families, and strive to continue the leadership that has been the foundation for North Lake Yacht Club since 1953.

See you on the water,
Marilyn Guenther

Upcoming Social Activities

North Lake Sailing School

Know anyone interested in learning how to sail? North Lake Sailing School teaches sailing to kids ages 5 – 16. 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 14th and online registration is open March 1st. Click on the link below to find out more about our class offerings:


The Independence Day fireworks display will soar above North Lake on Sunday, July 4 at 9:30 PM. Help make the 2021 show a memorable event! Your donation will boost our ability to make it a wonderful evening. Flares are available for purchase to creat a “ring of fire” on the shoreline after the show. Use the link below to support NLYC fireworks display!
