Nagawicka Lake Yacht Club, Inc. was founded in 1895 in the spirit of sailing. NLYC membership boasts five sailboat fleets consisting of Optimist, X, MC, C and E Scow boats. Our C fleet has grown to be one of the largest in the country.


NLYC members have use of our beautiful grounds with over 900 feet of lake frontage, boat slips in the Nagawicka Lake Lagoon, as well as space allowing fully rigged sailboats to be dry sailed on our grounds. Club members are also eligible to use the convenient, private boat launch. Our clubhouse includes a full kitchen and bar facilities that we use for our many social functions throughout the year. Members may also rent the club for private parties.


We offer our members discounted rates on our fully staffed sailing school for youth sailors. Instruction in offered on both Optimist dinghies and X-boats. Our fleet of Optis can be rented during instruction for those who do not own their own boats.
