2020 Commodore Letter

Dear NLYC Members,

As snow is on the ground and sunlight seems to be rare, the 2020 sailing and social season is about four months away. The 2020 season is a big one for the NLYC as we celebrate our 125th anniversary.

I would like to take a moment to close out the 2019 season and thank the retiring board members who have served for the past three years. Thank you Tom Heinrich and Bernard Krauska for serving our club and your contributions. I would also like to thank Past Commodore(PC) Nicole Kurfis. Her time and energy was not unnoticed by the BOD and the membership. PC Nicole has spent countless hours organizing member information and helping transition to our new website. Thank you Nicole, Tom and Bernard!

The NLYC is in good financial standing. Two of the attached documents are the 2019 end of year Balance Sheet as well as the Profit and Loss statement. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our treasure, Paul Price at with any questions. Thanks also to Linda Ross and Paul Price for all they do to keep the NLYC books up to date and the BOD informed.

Moving forward to the 2020 season we have many opportunities for members to shine. The 125th anniversary will be celebrated the weekend of June 12th through the 14th. We are looking for members to serve on this committee in a number of different ways. If you are interested in volunteering, let me know what area you would like to assist in: party organization and planning, entertainment, sponsorship solicitation, or apparel. The current vision for the event is a Friday night open house followed by a Saturday night big bash with an invite going out to all ILYA clubs, past members, and Nagawicka Lake residents. The vision for this is a cocktail party with appetizers, live music (with open mic opportunities), cash hot sandwich bar, with an additional outdoor bar. Please contact if you can help.

The NLYC indoor facility got a major update in 2017 and continues to look good. The NLYC BOD with the assistance of Herb Rasmussen is looking at continuing this trend and updating the exterior and patio area of the club. We are currently putting together a plan that addresses a larger patio area on the lakeside of the tent, a permanent pavilion (replacing the existing tent structure), as well as fixing the compromised patio area by the back steps, and addressing the small steps that lead to the lake and lower patio area (which is a safety issue as well as a bottleneck). This plan would be done in phases and would need to be approved by the membership.

Dues and bar pricing will stay the same for the 2020 sailing season. In the coming weeks look for you dues statement from the membership committee. This year there will be an option to pay your dues online by credit card with the member being responsible for the associated fees. 

Over the past year I have been working on an organizational chart outlining the major committees and jobs of the club along with their descriptions. We still have many open spots that could use your talents. Please take a look at the attached item (Organizational Chart) and see if there is a place for you! Thank you in advance for your volunteerism. Without volunteers our club would simply not exist. 

I look forward to the 2020 sailing and social season as well as serving as your commodore.

5 Reasons Why All Kids Should Sail

There might be nothing in the world that packs as many life lessons as the activity of sailing. It teaches teamwork, engineering, history, patience, oceanography, ecology…all in one fell swoop. Because of this, we believe every kid should learn to sail and here’s the top five reasons why. Feel free to add your own.

Welcome to Nagawicka Lake Yacht Club!

Nagawicka Lake Yacht Club was established in 1895 exclusively for sailboats. We are based on the shore of Nagawicka Lake in Delafield and Hartland, Wisconsin with a quaint lake-side club house. The club has an active membership that are involved in sailing for pleasure and competition with a racing program that has over 80 races scheduled each season. Our club races Opti, X Boat, 420's, MC Scow, C Scow and E Scow. A range of instructional programs are offered to both adults and children for the experienced or novice sailor. The atmosphere is friendly and informal. Today, the fine facilities, excellent racing program and frequent club social activities combine to offer a wholesome family experience.
