Welcome to Laguna Woods Yacht Club
As you know, we have been able to resume our sailing on Hiatus after taking due precautions including limiting the number of people who can be onboard during the sail. As you can well imagine, being able to get out for a sail has proven to be extremely popular. Therein lies a problem. We have found that many of you, understandably so, have reserved a spot on Hiatus many times during a month and as a result there are many people who haven't been able to sail.
So, here is what we'd like to ask of you. Please limit the number of times you sail to no more than four times each month. If you have already reserved more than four in August and/or September, please go online and cancel those in excess of four.
We appreciate your cooperation in making sailing available to more Members. Please understand that if cooperation does not occur, we will be forced to cancel those reservations in excess of four per month.
Thanks for your understanding!
Questions? Please contact Commodore Wayne Carlson at email@example.com.

“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.
