The Saylorville Yacht Club’s main priority continues to be the safety of our members and guests. We will continue to follow the safety guidelines put forth by the CDC and the Iowa Department of Public Health as they progress.

We are working hard to prepare for the 2022 season and look forward to seeing you all again soon. We will post safety and policy updates to this message board, the individual event information, and in our emails to members regarding events and updates.

Stay safe and get ready for an exciting season!

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.

Membership provides "instant friends" with the common bond of sailing. Our club has a full calendar of parties, on-the-water events, dockside gatherings, and racing. Affordable courses are available to sharpen your skills; and you can test those skills in our challenging, low-cost racing program. From the first party in February to the annual banquet in November, you'll look forward to events every month.  

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!
