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.
2017 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.
TSA Youth Regatta
12th Annual TSA Spring Fling Youth Regatta - March 11th and 12th, 2016
LCYC will be hosting the TSA Youth Regatta on March 11 and 12, 2017. Participation in this event continues to grow. Last year we had a very impressive turnout and expect the same this year. As always, we will have the opportunity to share our hospitality, great racing venue, camping facilities, and wonderful meals, all of which have made this event a staple for many on the TSA circuit. The regatta will also give our youth sailors the opportunity share in the competition and camaraderie of their peers. This year we will have following fleets:
- O'pen Bic
- Optimist pram in four separate fleets
- Green - Novice sailors ages: 7-15
- White - ages: 7-10
- Blue - ages: 11-12
- Red - ages: 13-15
- 4.7 for lighter or younger sailors
- Radial for older or heavier sailors
- 420 double-handed boat
The Notice of Race and the registration page for our TSA Spring Fling Regatta will be online shortly.
I also want to take this opportunity to once again ask for volunteers. It takes volunteers on and off the water to make our Spring Fling Regatta a success. Please contact me David Lilley if you would like to help on the water. If you would like to help in the kitchen, please contact Michelle Lilley .
Check out the Youth Programs link on the TSA web site.
Warning: the enthusiasm of these youngsters is contagious. You are guaranteed to have a good time!
