Another successful CLYC season is in the books.  See you next year!

Commodore’s Welcome

The Clear Lake Yacht Club is different things to different people. For some, it’s a weekly date with your friends and family on the water racing; for others, it’s the joy of watching your children and grandchildren learning to sail and enjoy a skill and hobby they can cherish forever. For others, it’s a social gathering, to meet up with friends you only see this time of year, at these types of events that only the yacht club can provide. I think we can all agree that the CLYC is steeped in tradition and gives its members something to look forward to each and every year.

My family has been members for 15 years already. All three of my kids went through sailing school and even taught there as well. I am proud to say that all three are adult sailors that have a real love for the sport. I can honestly say that some of the best family time we’ve had were sailing related. It all started right here.

I hope we can continue these traditions for years into the future, so generations can enjoy the racing, the social aspects, and the Clear Lake Yacht Club “way of life” the way we have. We need to continue the work we’ve been doing over the years, by hosting regattas, having social events, and attracting new members to the club. Your support of the club and the Clear Lake Yacht Club Sailing School will ensure our continued success!

Have a great summer, and see you on the water.
