The Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club has fleet racing in our four major fleets - E-Scows, Stars, Thistles, and A-Class Catamarans - every Sunday morning, and many Saturdays from May to September. Recent successful fleet-building efforts have resulted in over 45 boats on the starting line each Sunday. In addition, there is Laser racing on Friday evenings in July and August. Although club membership is required to race as skipper, non-members are welcome to crew for members. Send an e-mail to email@example.com for more information on fleet sailing.
The club also sponsors a number of regattas, including our annual Spring and Fall regattas for Scows and Thistles, and the Tomahawk regatta in early June for Stars. Our largest annual regatta is for our smallest boats, as the club hosts our annual Back-to-School regatta in early September for as many as 100 sailors in Optimist Dinghies and Lasers from throughout the northeast. Click on any of the fleet logos above for regatta information, or click on the main regatta page on the navigation bar under "sailing".
LHYC also has an excellent instructional program for youth of all ages, open to members and non-members. Click on the instruction tabs on the navigation bar for more information on the sailing instruction program.
