SLYC is excited to be hosting the 91st Annual WMYA Western’s Regatta! We hope to see between 90-100 boats registered for the event with Optimist, Butterfly, Laser, MC, C, & E boats competing. This has generally been an “all hands on deck” event with SLYC Members participating both in the racing as well as volunteering to work at the various activities occurring during the week. Please see the link below to volunteer and sign up for as many positions that you can.
This is an awesome event that provides everyone the opportunity to watch world class scow racing and attend the many social events. A schedule of events will be coming soon along with numerous work parties to prepare the club for the regatta. If you have any questions, you can contact Beth Windemuller, Commodore of the Western’s Regatta, [email protected].
A family-oriented sailing and social club in Spring Lake Michigan.
Spring Lake Yacht Club is nestled in wooded acres along the north bank of Spring Lake. The lake’s exceptional beauty, north-south orientation and prevailing westerly Lake Michigan breezes make it a natural for those who enjoy the best of sailing and power boating.
SLYC has active racing fleets in six classes, so if you are looking to race sailboats, we have something that will suit your style. If you are new to sailing, our yacht club offers group and private lessons for both juniors and adults. Classes are offered on-site throughout the summer. With all of that, as well as our exciting new wave attenuating dock system, now is the perfect time to get involved in sailing on Spring Lake!
Approximately 200 member families comprised of sailors and non-sailors enjoy a host of year-round social activities. The members’ voluntary involvement in social and work activities creates a welcome, family-friendly feeling at the Spring Lake Yacht Club. This membership participation provides a vital foundation for the success of the club, and creates an atmosphere where the spirit and camaraderie of sailing can flourish.
