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!

Considering we have not had a full regatta since 2013 the comeback year of 2016 was quite successful.  Eighteen boats turned out and it was a great time.  Mark Warwick did a superb job as Principal Race Officer this year. Results are posted on the regatta page.

Alert! Alert!  These races have been postponed one week to August 20th.  A number of sailors in the club had scheduling conflicts that warranted a rescheduling.  These races will be our last Trophy Races of the year.  Invitations are being sent out to the Johnston participants now.  The Commodore's Cup for new racers is also happening.  If you are not an experienced racer but would like to get in on the action and have a shot at winning a trophy then this race is for you.  Skippers meeting will be at 1:30 in the afternoon for both races.

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.
