June 24th Commodore Letter

Dear NLYC members,

As many of you know the fireworks are on Friday, July 3rd which is also the observed holiday. Keeping this in mind, the traditional 4th of July family picnic is going to look much different this year. This event is typically the largest event at the yacht club. After much discussion by your board of directors this is our plan:

The inside of the club can be accessed for the restrooms only. All indoor practices should be followed. Due to the limited space on the NLYC grounds for socially distancing the property will be available for members and their households only. Unfortunately there will be NO guests allowed this year. Groups are asked to be socially responsible for their actions as well as social distancing. Families can bring their own food (and yard games), however, they are responsible for cleaning up before they leave.  We are also asking that no dogs are on the property for this event per usual for social parties/gathering. The bar will be open at 6:00 pm until an hour after the conclusion of the fireworks for outside service only as we do now. This also means there can be no carry ins or coolers of alcoholic beverages as this jeopardizes our on-premise liquor license issued by the city of Delafield.

If you or someone in your household are on edge about being around others right now or feel uncomfortable if someone gets too close, consider not attending this event this year. While we implement preventative measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19 during all club activities, we cannot guarantee that you, or members of your family, will not become infected with Covid-19 during club activities or in using the clubhouse, yacht club equipment, or the grounds. Therefore, you are responsible for the health and safety of yourself and your family, NOT the NLYC, the Board of Directors, or the Covid-19 Committee. 

If you are disappointed about this decision and had plans to bring guests to the club this year here is a suggestion...park at the NLYC (please make sure your car has a sticker or note in dash) and walk over to the public beach with your guest. Thank you in advance for your understanding as I was reminded again last night,  this is just for this year and (hopefully) not forever.

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.
