NLGYC is a sailing club. Every Saturday and Sunday from mid-June through August, we are racing. Six classes of single hull boats are chartered: Stars, Thistles, Lasers, Flying Juniors, N-10 Turnabouts and Optimists. Participation is easy: Come on over to the club on a weekend! Sailors always need extra crews (no experience required) or you might find a pleasant ride in a motor vessel helping on a safety patrol boat.
Beyond weekend racing, our Junior Program sailors train most weekdays, and NLGYC usually hosts a regatta or two each summer.
NLGYC’s Racing Guidelines were last modified in 1999. In the summer and fall of 2008, the Racing Committee worked on these guidelines and proposed some amendments. Changes regarding syndication and trophy qualifications are reflected in the new Racing Guidelines.
