Get ready for a great summer!  It's going to be fantastic!!

Commodore’s Welcome

Greetings from the Clear Lake Yacht Club!

I believe that some of the best things in life are the most fleeting – a beautiful sunrise or sunset, delicate hoarfrost on the trees after a foggy winter night, or a rare sighting of an eagle catching a fish.

Here in the upper Midwest, our summer seasons are a little like that, as they seem to come and go so quickly.  That is why we anticipate summer so much throughout every long winter, and treasure every moment once it’s here.  It’s exhilarating to get out on the waters of beautiful Clear Lake, but more importantly, it’s absolutely priceless to reconnect with dear friends and family within the Clear Lake Yacht Club (CLYC).

Now in its 84th year, the CLYC continues its focus on sailing, with a heavy emphasis on spending memorable time with good friends and family.  Many families within our club enjoy a tradition that has endured for generations!

If you’ve been thinking about starting your own tradition within the Clear Lake Yacht Club, we invite you to check us out and do just that.  If you are visiting, perhaps for a regatta or other event, we welcome you!  And if you’re a returning member, welcome back for another great season, during which we’ll host the ILYA E Invitational and two Hobie events, in addition to our regular racing and social schedule.

I look forward to meeting or reconnecting with you soon.
