LWYC Proudly Presents

(on Friday, January 22, 2021 at 10 am via Zoom)


John Marshall, Commodore of Southern California Yachting Association, presents an interesting and very entertaining "History of Avalon." He starts 7,000 years ago, continuing up to the present day, showcasing the various personalities whose lives make up a rich history of the Catalina Island town of Avalon. The presentation features many historical photographs of Avalon and the people that helped to shape one of our favorite destinations for mariners. John has been the featured speaker at meetings of SCYA, Alamitos Bay, Long Beach, San Diego, Balboa and Cabrillo Beach Yacht Clubs.

This is a presentation not to be missed!

We're Sailing Again!

The LWYC Board of Directors has given the go ahead to resume sailing effective Monday, June 22. 

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 five 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.
  • The cockpit, high-touch points and any shared equipment (PFDs) will be wiped down with a disinfectant before and after each sail.
  • 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.

Here is the report from the Board as well as the waiver:

“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.
