First Things First New Year's Day Sail

The name of the game is informal with people setting sail anytime after noon, so there's no telling who you will run into. You are bound to catch up with long time acquaintances and who knows - you just might meet someone new as well!

Moon Shine Pursuit Regatta

  • Dated to be Determined
  • What better way than sailing by the full moon! The next full moon is approaching and so is the Moonshine Pursuit Regatta.  Get all your running lights in operation for the evening sail. Starts will be staggered according to PHRF, with the highest rated boat crossing the start line first. The end result should be that all boats cross the finish line at the same time. The race will start off the Club's breakwater, proceed to the Dam and then down the lake to Cranes Mill and back...about 10 PM.

Longneck Multihull Open Regatta

  • May 20th - 21st, 2017


Proceeds with benefit the Canyon Lake Sailing Foundation.

It’s the closest thing to Americas Cup racing you will find on Canyon Lake. They may not be 72 feet long but all the racers in this regatta have more then one hull and can often outrun the chase boats. Come on out and watch or better still get that multihull in the water and join the fun. There are no losers at Longneck. See you there.

Memorial Day Long Distance Race

  • May 29th, 2017

Come out and join in on the fun. There will be one start in front of the LCYC Marina. We will sail to the dam, down the length of the lake and back to the finish line in front of the LCYC Marina. Trophies will be awarded to fleet winners.




The Dr. Branch Leukemia Cup fundraising efforts are now in full swing. Money raised from this event will be used to fund life-saving blood cancer research and services for local patients. Fundraising teams are now being formed. Teams can be affiliated with a specific boat, fleet or group of individuals. We are also seeking both individual and corporate sponsorships. All funds will go directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

4th of July Long Distance Race

  • Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

Come out and join in on the fun. There will be one start in front of the LCYC Marina. This race will feature a pursuit start format. The boat with the highest PHRF in each class will start first at 10:00 a.m., followed by the next lowest PHRF, etc. Start times for each boat will be given out at the Skipper’s Meeting and will be calculated based upon each boat’s PHRF Handicap and the length of the course.

SEW-MAD Regatta

Saturday, August 26th, 2017

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.

Fall Moon Shine Regatta

  • Come out to enjoy a pleasant long distance race by the moonlight. Moon Shine Regattas are favorites of LCYC. Gone are the sweltering hot days of summer. Enjoy a good breeze, good moon light on the water, and good friends.
