Lake Canyon Yacht Club
The Lake Canyon Yacht Club was chartered in 1967 with a primary focus on sailing, as well as active participation in the LCYC volunteer-based community. It is located on the north shore of Canyon Lake, Texas about 45 miles north of San Antonio and 50 miles south of Austin. The club facilities occupy 18 acres of land on a bluff overlooking the deep 8000 acre lake.
The club's amenities include a 144 slip waterfront with ample docking space for dry sailed boats and visitors participating in regattas, a two lane launching ramp, dry storage for over 150 boats, a clubhouse with a party deck, swimming pool, and a boat rigging tower for stepping and unstepping masts. The Lake Canyon Yacht Club supports an active racing program which includes J-22, Catalina 22, Flying Scot, Sunfish, Opti, PHRF, Portsmouth and Multi-hull fleets. Not to be missed is our annual Wurstfest Regatta, an LCYC signature event since 1968.
Our club is also pleased to be connected with the Canyon Lake Sailing Foundation, a non profit organization and registered with the State of Texas as a 501(C)3 corporation. The Foundation's charter is to support youth sailing and water safety. More details can be found on the Youth Sailing page.
2016 LCYC Race Program
We would like members to volunteer for at least 2 racing events during the year. As people volunteer, the link to an online Race Schedule will be updated and remain on the website throughout the year. The success of this program is dependent upon the efforts and good will of our members.
Please email dates you would like to volunteer to: RaceVolunteerForm@lcyc.net.

CALLING ALL WOMEN SAILORS!
The bar is set higher than ever this year. It would be great to have 7-8 keel boats and 5-6 Sunfish register for this race. With your participation this can be achieved!
Three races are planned to be followed by our world-famous SEW-MAD dinner. For further information, please contact Lynn Simpson.
This is a Women Only regatta and tons of fun.
Labor Day Sailing Festival
Last year we turned the events of Labor Day weekend up-side-down and it was a success. So get your little sailboat out from under leaves, dust and all other stuff for some non-traditional sailing activities! Come sailing to a different breeze on Labor Day weekend, September 3-4, for the 2nd Edition of the Labor Day Sailing Festival.All sailboats under 20 feet are invited. You must be older than 9 and younger than 99 to participate on a single handed and 6 to 99 for double handed. This event is open to all members and guests of members, so bring your family and friends for the Labor Day Sailing Festival weekend where we have rendez-vous with great fun while we sail, play and enjoy the food.
Until then, don't forget to wax the top deck too! Chris Besch and Sylvie Mathis, Event Chairs
