RYC is a group of fun loving sailors dedicated to the fantastic sport of sailing.  We welcome new members of all ages and sailing abilities to join in our racing, cruising and social events throughout the year.  ASA sailing classes are available with our member instructors.

Our traditional home has been Howard Prairie Lake in the southern Cascades.  After a couple of very dry years, we're back at Howard Prairie lake again.  

Come sail with us!

Tim Sullivan travelled all the way over from Brookings to win the Icebreaker Trophy.  Four boats competed in a small but competitive fleet.  Lasers are very manueverable and Tim made the most of two very shifty first beats in races 1 and 3 and held on for 2nd in a long race 2.  It was a beautiful day for racing and the boats that showed up had a great day for racing and the lake pretty much to ourselves.  Hope to see more boats on the line for the Jensen on June 25th!

Spring Sailing At Emigrant

Emigrant Lake

Here's a short video of some recent action https://youtu.be/lWPZNAgtcSc

Spring racing is here! Each Wednesday afternoon around 5:00 we get together to do some short course racing. There are some new Lasers in the club and we hope to see them all on the water. Here's a little video from a couple year ago racing. Find that sweet laser on Craigslist and upgrade your hump day for a full quarter of the year! Racing can be condition dependent so contact Jay Harland to get an invite to the group email to get updates on conditions for each week.
