THE LAKE TAHOE CONCOURS d'ELEGANCE

August 11th & 12th, 2017

In 1972 a group of Tahoe Yacht Club members and friends got together to share their passion for wooden boats. From this modest beginning, the Lake Tahoe Concours d' Elegance has grown to play a significant role in the wooden boat community, as well as the Lake Tahoe maritime community. Since its inception in 1994 the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation has hosted the Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance focusing on continuing and maintaining growth of the show,  quality of boat exhibits, high judging standards and practices, and most importantly, the passion for wooden boats between exhibitors and the public.

Each year the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation raises money for charitable donation which is exclusively focused in providing educational opportunities originating in the Lake Tahoe area that enhance expertise or understanding of maritime skills.

THE TAHOE YACHT CLUB FOUNDATION PERPETUAL TROPHIES HISTORY

Perpetual Trophies. "Perpetual" meaning enduring and unsurpassed, and continuation of a tradition. Fulfilling a dream and receiving recognition which will remain an everlasting benchmark in boating history.

Concours dreams and achievements are validated with first, second and third-place awards “in class” and with the presentation of special Perpetual trophies going to the most meticulously-restored, highest-point boats. Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation now has 17 of these special trophies made possible by the generous assistance of endowers, many who have competed and won their own share of precious "Concours silver, crystal, and mahogany" trophies over the past 42 years of this event.
