HAPPENINGS AT THE CLUB
WHO WE ARE...
The Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club began in 1905 and is one of the most active Yacht Clubs in the State of New Jersey.
The club is run by its members for its members. But the number one goal is Family First. We maintain many traditions from 1905. The club features an active sailing and social schedule, with an emphasis on activities for the entire family. The club's sailing program includes a junior sailing instructional and racing program, as well as one-design racing in four fleets. The club has an excellent youth program, called "The Juniors", and many social affairs for young and old alike.
Membership. New prospective members are presented by existing members and approved by the entire membership. We also do not rent or offer our facilities to the general public.
Our instruction programs are open to the public. Non-members are also allowed to crew for members in fleet racing. Our social schedule includes a variety of Saturday night functions throughout the Spring and Summer. Find out about our spectacular 4th of July fireworks here.
The club also has weekday dining for members on the porch overlooking Lake Hopatcong. For information on membership, please click on the button labeled Information. The club is very proud of its historical status. Much effort has been made to maintain the club in its original state, while serving an active membership.
The LHYC Historical Foundation has been formed to support the maintenance and restoration of our historical building.
But the main goal and effort is to always involve our Families.
