NEVADA YACHT CLUB

Welcome to Nevada's Premier Sailing Club

Nevada Yacht Club Racing


They say if you can sail on Lake Mead, you can sail anywhere...

Whether its a gentle 3.5 knots or blustery 22 knots, our skilled and professional Race Committee works hard to set the best courses to ensure a fun and fair competition. We host Cup Fleet and Novice Fleet racing. 

The Cup Fleet is a competitive fleet that races for the Commodore's Cup. Points are collected throughout the year and a winner is crowned at the annual Holiday Part and Awards Banquet. For a detailed description of each regatta and race series, see the Annual Race Events page.


Novice Fleet is open to all beginners and run concurrently with all Cup Fleet regattas. See the Novice Fleet page for full details.

Nevada Yacht Club and SCYA affiliated club members enjoy a discounted entry fee.

    This 70-mile round trip multi-day, multi-leg, point-to-point race with an overnight stop over at the Temple Bar Marina is a club favorite. 

    This is a great event for Cruisers to tag along with the racing fleet and join the festivities on Saturday night. Most crews will fire up the BBQ for dinner and camp on their boats. Many crews will book a hotel room at the Temple Bar Resort Marina.

    Overnight docking fees are in additional to the registration fee and are payable to the Temple Bar Marina.

    Registration for all participating boats is required.

    After the summer heat we need races in the cooler temps.  The fall series takes advantage of non-blistering air temperatures and the still warm water temperature. If you have time take a swim between races.
