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.

- 8:00 to 8:30 - Light Breakfast/Sign up for Projects
- Lunch provided at noon
It's time to spruce up the club in time for Wurstfest Regatta! The day starts with a meeting in the clubhouse and assignment of projects selected by the Property Manager and D&G Chairman. Projects on the list are as follows:
Painting the double picnic tables and cover, repainting parking lot stripes, trimming the red buds by the pool, painting slip numbers on the docks and trimming away weeds.
All equipment and supplies are provided by the D&G staff, however, members should feel free to bring their own equipment and work gloves. We had great participation last year and accomplished a lot. Remember that completion of these tasks frees up our D&G staff to work on more difficult projects.
Contact Dave Sanford for additional information.
