We very much enjoyed Chris Lowe's presentation on sharks. Here's the links he mentioned during his talk:

Announcing the LWYC Dockside Happy Hours!

Join the crew and Skipper of Haitus as they end a great day of sailing with a Dockside Happy Hour. 

The DHH is a “non-hosted”, BYOE event (i.e., the skipper is not the host). Participants will meet at the entrance to F-Dock and find a picnic table or other location where chairs could be set up.  There will be no guarantee that the skipper for that day will be back at any particular time, or that they or their crew would be able to participate in the DHH … but you never know. Come down and enjoy the sun, the water, and the fellowship of your Club!

Registration is open to LWYC Members and their guests and is limited to a total of 6 registrants.

During the October, 2020 Membership Meeting, Staff Commodore Lloyd Chase shared a tribute video honoring Roy Hutts and Shelley Schuber. Roy and Shelley were enormously supportive of our yacht club and played a critical role in the success the club enjoys today. Please click on the link below to be able to watch this excellent video:

We're Sailing Again!

The LWYC Board of Directors has given the go ahead to resume sailing effective Monday, June 22. (The below has been updated with changes made on March 19, 2021)

We're aware that the COVID-19 pandemic is not over, so we are taking the following precautions in an effort to reduce the risk:

  • No more than six people will be allowed to sail including the Skipper
  • Social distancing shall be observed as much as possible. In those situations where it isn't practical to maintain the distance, the wearing of a mask is required.
  • Carpooling is strongly discouraged
  • No sharing of food or drink

Here's what we expect from you:

  • Wear a mask if unable to maintain a 6' distance
  • Bring and use hand sanitizer
  • If you have a temperature or feel ill, please stay home and let the Skipper know as soon as possible
  • If you have your own PFD, please bring it to wear.
  • Everyone who sails will need to sign a waiver

Please be aware that individual Skippers may have more stringent requirements than those noted above.


Want to go sailing?

Laguna Woods Yacht Club has its own 30' Sailboat named Hiatus that goes out Monday thru Friday. If you're interested in a wonderful adventure on the open seas, we leave from our slip in Dana Point Harbor at noon. Click here to go the Calendar and make a reservation:

“Thank you so much for…a fabulous day of sailing the Pacific Ocean… So exciting to see the seals and dolphins… Was truly a day we will always cherish and remember.”  — A recent guest

Laguna Woods Yacht Club is dedicated to the joy and skills of sailing. We provide both on and off the water activities. Members interested in sailing can ride along and watch for dolphins or be more actively involved in sailing the vessel. Members may also choose to participate in our wide range of non-sailing social activities.

Knowledge of sailing is not necessary to be a member. For more detailed information, see the links to the left on Joining the Yacht Club,  and our Calendar. Teaching is our mission. Come learn with us. Go to the Sailing Academy page.
