 Diamond Lake Youth Sailing


Sailing is a long standing tradition at Diamond Lake.  The goal of the Diamond Lake Youth Sailing Program is to teach sailing and seamanship in a safe, fun, structured environment.  Our program promotes sportsmanship, self-discipline, self-reliance, and a respect for nature and fellow boaters. Our goal is to develop a love for sailing and to build confidence in our sailors' own abilities.


Summer 2019 

We are looking forward to another great sailing summer at the Diamond Lake Yacht Club.  The youth programs for 2019 are not quite ready for publication.  In the interim, you can review the offerings for 2018, as they will be similar to what will be offered in 2019.  Please check back in April for the final 2019 youth offerings.  


Summer 2018

Classes will be offered during the following weeks
July 9th-12th and
July 16th- 19th
Classes will take place from 1pm to 4pm from Monday to Thursday.
Friday is reserved for an optional "Fun Day" or make-up classes in the event of inclement weather.

Classes will cost $80 for members and $100 for non-members per week. Payment can be made in cash or via check made out to DLYC. Registration can be completed via a Google Form found by clicking here. In addition to registration, we require a signed parental release form in order to let the kids out onto the water which can be found here. In order to make sure we have all the staff and equipment necessary to facilitate classes, we ask that you complete the registration form by 5pm on the Friday preceding the week of class you are signing up for. We are very excited for sailing this year and are looking forward to another great season!

Boats and Equipment


Some boat storage is available at the yacht club on racks in the water. If you wish to leave your boat at the yacht club for the duration of the summer, a fee of $50 for the season is required for boat storage. If you are just hoping to leave your boat at the club during the weeks with lessons, please contact either instructor to make sure there is room on the racks for your boat.

Other Sailing Events

We hope to see you out on the water!
