The Saylorville Yacht Club's main priority is the safety of our members and guests. At this time, the SYC Board has decided in the interest of following the State of Iowa's best practices and the safety of our members, we will be cancelling the remaining events for the year of 2020 for the time being. We will continue to monitor the situation at hand and if it is deemed safe to do so, we will arrange events as soon as we can. Please check back here, on our calendar, and our COVID-19 blog post for more information.
Racing:We wanted to share our status for on-the-water events. We are sorry to announce, that due to COVID-19, The Army Corps of Engineers has notified us that no permits will be granted for on-the-water events for the remainder of 2020. This applies to the Saylorville Yacht Club, Saylorville Yacht Club Sailing School, and all other organizations that wish to meet on the lake.
We hope that this status will soon change as we are excited to get back to racing as soon as possible. We will provide updates as they become available.
Update as of 7/1/2020: Although we are still not permitted to hold on-the-water gatherings, we have been allowed to host our Wednesday night race series and will start Wednesday, July 1st. More info on the Wednesday Night Race Series page. We have incorporated some changes to facilitate proper social distancing. Please familiarize yourself with the updated instructions and practices if you are interested in racing with us on Wednesday. See you there!
Thank you and stay safe,
Saylorville Yacht Club Board of Directors
Welcome To Saylorville Yacht Club
Saylorville Yacht Club is a thriving group of sailors whose boats are based at Saylorville Lake Marina, just 15 minutes north of Des Moines. The club exists to promote the enjoyment of sailing and the company of sailors. We are organized on a solid tripod of social, educational, and racing activities.
If "sailing is forever," so are the friendships you'll make and the memories you'll keep as a member of the Saylorville Yacht Club. It's an enthusiastic group of sailors, and we've saved a spot for you. Welcome aboard!
