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.

The youth sailing school is designed to teach children from ages 8 to 18 how to sail. Conducted during the last two weekends of May, the course will include classroom sessions on basic sailing concepts, as well as on the water activities. All participants must pass a basic swim test before progressing to on-the-water activities.
There is a maximum class size of 30 students; priority is given to first time participants. Returning sailors may register, but will be put on a stand-by list and accepted once available boat capacity is determined.
Memorial Day was created as an occasion to honor those who have paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedom. This is our opportunity to stop and give thanks for the many who have died protecting that freedom. As part of the LCYC Memorial Day celebration, we would like to honor any of our own LCYC soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen who have given their lives defending our country. Please send Gwen Cunningham a photo and short bio on anyone you would like to honor at the party. Please email to ActivitiesChair@lcyc.net.
