May 28th Commodore Letter

Dear NLYC Members,
Starting June 1, 2020 the building will be open for restroom use only. There will be a number of steps when entering the NLYC property and clubhouse so please read carefully below.

Responsibility: While we implement preventative measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19 during club activities, we cannot guarantee that you, or members of your family, will not become infected with Covid-19 during club activities or i n 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. This i s similar to your assuming the responsibility of partaking i n sailing. If your crew is not a member or you have guests on the premises please note that it is your responsibility to make them aware of and follow these stipulations.

Common Sense and Safety Measures: Please do NOT enter the club grounds i f you feel
sick or i f you come into contact with someone who feels sick or has felt sick or i f you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms . Even i f you think your allergies are acting up or it’s just a head cold, please stay home until your symptoms resolve.

When entering the NLYC property:
1. On SCHEDULED sailing days or sailing school days there will be approximately eight sanitizing stations on the NLYC property. Please find a hand sanitizing station and properly sanitize your hands .
2. On non-scheduled sailing or non-sailing school days it will be the individual's responsibility to bring and/or use hand sanitizer when entering the NLYC property. Outdoor stations will not be available these days, however, sanitizer will be available immediately entering the clubhouse if the restroom needs to be used.

Building is open but restricted to restrooms only and the remainder of the building remains closed.
This includes water from the kitchen sink, bar area and the ICE MACHINE so these areas do not need to be deep cleaned and sanitized. When entering the NLYC clubhouse please:

  1. 1. Put on your personal protective mask. This must be worn at all times when in the building.
  2.  Properly sanitize your hands .
  3.  Only one (1) individual in a restroom at a time
    1.  Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a family member over the age of 18 to ensure proper sanitizing and safety with sanitizing materials
      *Sailing School will have their own procedures in place.
    2. Families with children under the age of 12 must use the unisex bathroom to the left.
  4.  A ten (10) person maximum i n the building at any one time. Please visually check this and if there are too many people please exit the building and wait outside.
  5.  Practice appropriate social distancing when in the clubhouse.
  6.  Please knock on the restroom door before entering to ensure only one person at a time.
  7.  Follow the directions on all posted signs within the clubhouse which are more detailed than described below.
    1.  Spray and/or sanitize toilet seats and accessories before and after use with provided materials
    2. Do NOT discard sanitizing wipes or paper towel in toilets
    3. Properly wash hands for 20 seconds. Hand sanitizer i s NOT an appropriate measure after using the restroom.
    4. Exit building ASAP
    5. Properly sanitize hands after leaving building.
  8.  *Please remember the NLYC clubhouse is not a place to congregate even in inclement weather.

Sailing resumes Tuesday, June 2, 2020
Sailors please be aware that the judges are as always doing the best that they can. Please note that “boat 2” may be short handed due to concerns that individuals may have with proper social distancing.  As stated before the judges are working hard to get it right and believe me when I say that judging is far more stressful than sailing (unless Peter Keck is behind you!).

  1. Races will be held but will not count toward traditional NLYC race series until further notice. Please contact your fleet captain if you have concerns or questions.
  2. Please practice proper social distancing while on the NLYC property.
  3. We will review this after 2 weeks and make adjustments and hopefully move in the direction of sailing as usual.
  4. It i s recommended, but not policed, that boats who contain crew(s) always sail with that same person(s) or “team of people” to lower the risk.

Judges and ALL NLYC Boats:
1. If you are a judge and you are not comfortable participating with people that are not in your household it is your responsibility to find a suitable substitute and notify your judging partners. Also, please reread the Responsibility section above about your and
your family’s health.
2. Boat and equipment sanitizing procedures will be posted i n two places describing what is involved. One will be posted on the inside of the judging shed door. The second will
be located inside the basement door to the immediate right on the side of the refrigerator. Please follow these accurately and carefully. If an NLYC boat or equipment is used these procedures MUST be followed.

Once again the Board and Covid-19 Committee will continuously monitor and evaluate the health and safety of our members over the summer, as well as any applicable changes in regulations and guidance offered by the city, county, state, and the nation. We then will modify our club procedures and activities accordingly. In Phase 4 we will also investigate and explore the possibilities of social events, bar service, and other sailing related activities.
Again, 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.

This should be considered a “soft opening” and the rules may seem strict right now. We are all navigating through this together. We also feel it is easier to reduce restrictions than enforce
stricter ones down the line. Please become familiar with and follow these stipulations moving forward. This will take a village to make this work and keep everyone safe and healthy.

Please make sure that this message is communicated to all family members who utilize the NLYC clubhouse and grounds. This includes your adult children who may participate in racing or sailing school.

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.
