Welcome to
Lake Canyon Yacht Club

The Lake Canyon Yacht Club was chartered in 1967 LCYC Clubhousewith a primary focus on sailing, as well as active participation in the LCYC volunteer-based community. It is located on the north shore of Canyon Lake, Texas about 45 miles north of San Antonio and 50 miles south of Austin. The club facilities occupy 18 acres of land on a bluff overlooking the deep 8000 acre lake.

The club's amenities include a 144 slip waterfront with ample docking space for dry sailed boats and visitors participating in regattas, a two lane launching ramp, dry storage for over 150 boats, a clubhouse with a party deck, swimming pool, and a boat rigging tower for stepping and unstepping masts. The Lake Canyon Yacht Club supports an active racing program which includes J-22, Catalina 22, Flying Scot, Sunfish, Opti, PHRF, Portsmouth and Multi-hull fleets. Not to be missed is our annual Wurstfest Regatta, an LCYC signature event since 1968.

Our club is also pleased to be connected with the Canyon Lake Sailing Foundation, a non profit organization and registered with the State of Texas as a 501(C)3 corporation. The Foundation's charter is to support youth sailing and water safety. More details can be found on the Youth Sailing page.

2017 LCYC Race Program

Happy Birthday 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!
