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. Skippers and crew compete throughout the year earning points towards their fleet's Nevada Cup trophy. 

All Nevada Cup regattas are divided into two competitive classes:

  • A-Fleet for PHRF less than 150
  • B-Fleet for PHRF of 150 or greater

Novice Fleet is open to all beginners regardless of PHRF. Novice fleet races run concurrently with all races and regattas. See the Novice Fleet page for full details.

For a detailed description of each regatta and race series, see the Annual Race Events page.

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

    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.
