Happy Birthday LCYC!

  • Birthday Bash October 7, 2017 at LCYC

This is the year! The Lake Canyon Yacht Club was established 50 years ago by a group of men who were avid sailors yearning for a deep water marina. They located the perfect spot on the north shore of the newly created Canyon Lake. From that group of 20, LCYC now boasts a membership of 362. Our marina, well-built and well maintained, is the jewel of Canyon Lake. A full calendar of both sailing and social events provides something for everyone throughout the course of the year. The benefits we reap today were made possible by dedicated leadership and countless volunteer hours from you, our members. Now it’s time to remember and celebrate the past 50 years. LCYC will host a 50th Birthday Bash on Saturday, October 7th. Invitations with complete details will be mailed out at the end of the summer, but mark your calendars now. This is an event you will not want to miss!
