North Carolina Sailing Clubs
The CAPE FEAR YACHT CLUB has been a part of the Southport, NC community since 1994. Founded by sailing enthusiasts, CYFC fosters educational programs in seamanship and promotes boating events to encourage the public’s interest in yachting. Club members participate in boating through social activities, racing, education and community support.
Membership in CYFC is designed to provide opportunites for sailors and non-sailors to enjoy a variety of club activities, while engaging young and first time boaters in the sport.The CFYC facilities include the clubhouse, which opened in 2006, and won a national award for architecture, along with amenities which include plenty beach access just across the road for the youth program.
CYC-NC is located on Wrightsville Beach, NC and the races will be held in the majestic Atlantic Ocean. Full, radial and 4.7 fleets are welcome. We recommend that you bring gear for all types of weather as late April/early May may bring us heavy sea breezes and seas in cool ocean water. Wrightsville Beach is located 7 miles east of Wilmington, NC. Watch this site for online registration and other pages to help you plan your trip.
Founded in 1997, the Cypress Landing Yacht Club (CLYC) has approximately 250 member families and provides recreational, social, educational, sailing, and yachting outreach activities. Our 225-slip marina is located on Chocowinity Bay off the Pamlico River in Eastern North Carolina. Some members join the Club for the sailing, boating, and kayaking activities. Others for the social events, parties, excursions, or the wide variety of other activities. Owning a boat is NOT a membership requirement.
The Lake Norman Yacht Club has a rich history of one-design racing. “One Design” means that all boats in a certain group were designed and manufactured to the same single design, enabling these boats to race ”head to head” without any handicaps. Many of the fleets listed here have strong new member and learn to sail programs, in addition to a healthy fleet social calendar. Fleets: Thistles Highlander FLYING SCOT FLEET 48 J80 J24 San Juan 21 U20 Cruising Sunfish Laser MC Scow Keelboat Multihull Some fleets come and go, but many of these fleets have been around for many years. The individual fleets are responsible for the content of their pages. Also, anyone who wants to design a fleet page should link from here.
We are a very friendly, diverse group of people who enjoy cruising and racing small to medium size sailboats on Lake Townsend. You do not need to own a boat to join the club or to go sailing with us. Lake Townsend is one of the best inland sailing venues in the state.
The restrictions on power boats ensure that sailboats never contend with choppy water created by skiers and jet skis. With our pontoon signal boat and two Carolina skiffs, we can set race courses to match the wind conditions and make racing safe and enjoyable. With strong fleets of Flying Scots and Tanzers and a good mixture of other mono-hulls and multi-hulls we offer very competitive racing and a variety of learning experiences for new sailors.
