Welcome to
Lake Canyon Yacht Club


The Lake Canyon Yacht Club was chartered in 1967 LCYC Clubhousewith 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.

2016 Registration Form

We encourage everyone to treat these two weekends as a single course, although we will accept entrants for either weekend (must have prior sailing experience to just sign up for Part 2). Class fees are $30 for both weekends, or $15 for either weekend separately. Only one fee is required for two family members if they are willing to share the course book. More details can be found on the Learn to Sail page.

The Foundation will accept donations of other boats and equipment for resale and special event auctions on a case by case basis. In addition to donated items, we are making plans to purchase high quality used boats. Your cash donations will help.
