Sailing distinguishes itself from other kinds of boating. For some, it becomes a joy of a lifetime. Just ask former Fleet 58 competitors, or anyone who now has a sailboat moored at his or her dock. The Clark Lake Yacht Club is once again helping people step into the breezy experience of sailing.
Learning to Sail starts with onshore training at the Yacht Club. Once familiar with the basics, you will sail on the lake accompanied by a Yacht Club member. The Yacht Club emphasizes “no prior boating or sailing experience required.” In this video, Pat O’Harris and Bruce Chipman describe the Learn to Sail program and why you might be interested.

The Clark Lake Yacht Club has a long history. Since the 1960s, the Club has been located just east of the Eagle Point Cove, on the south side. But did you know that through the years, the Club moved to different spots on the lake? One of them was Kentucky Point.

The Yacht Club has regularly hosted regattas that has attracted local, regional and international participants. At one regatta, sailors spoke out on what motivates them to sail. Watch them tell their story in this video.
