Tahoe Yacht Club's sailing program is filled with activities for all classes, from novices to "old salts."

And for those who are "between boats," there are always plenty of crewing opportunities. Regattas are conducted under the US Sailing Association's Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS). The spirit of competition may be serious, but camaraderie and corinthian spirit prevail over all events held on the "Lake in the Sky."


  • Beer Can Regatta Series
    • This popular Wednesday evening keelboat series runs for 14 weeks from the week after Memorial Day until late August, with spring, summer and overall series trophies awarded at the "Beer Can Ball" finale for skippers, crew and mates.

      The competition, as always, is both friendly and challenging with the Club's Race Committee committed to giving both spinnaker and cruising classes a race, regardless of size, speed or skill. If you'd like to join a crew, but don't have a boat, please contact TYC at 530-581-4700 and we can put your name on our bulletin board.
