Diamond Lake Youth Sailing

Did you know that Diamond Lake was nominated as one of the top five inland sailing lakes in the state? With over 80 years of sailing tradition the DLYC has many members that grew up sailing on Diamond Lake and support the continuation of the tradition.  The sailing program at the DLYC is intended to lay a foundation for a  lifetime of interest in sailing. While many programs focus on racing it is the intent of the DLYC program to focus on learning the science of sailing, teaching basic sailing technique and getting kids in the boats and on the water for hands-on experience and fun. Come join us for the start of a lifetime of fun.

Swimming skills must be assessed by our Lead Instructor prior to placement in a class.

Our Instructors:

Lane Francis is our lead instructor, an accomplished youth sailor and instructor and a graduate of the DLYC sailing program.
