Welcome to Nevada's Premier Sailing Club

Nancy Cox Women in Sailing

​Mini Conference & Race


About Nancy Cox:
In memory of one of our club's active sailor's, Nancy Cox, who is now sailing celestial shores after a battle with cancer, we celebrate all women who continue to pursue their passion for sailing. Nancy was the example of courage and perseverance. All through her treatment, she continued to go to the Lake and do what brought serenity to her soul. 

The fickle wind, warm waves, and austere beauty of Lake Mead make it the perfect backdrop to come together to honor women of all ages and skill levels to share our love, fear and curiosity of sailing as a sport, as recreation and most profoundly, as a time to connect with Mother Nature and express our gratitude for our ability to harness Her power while empowering ourselves to be as strong as Nancy.

Annual event held in the Fall.

    Nancy Cox Women In Sailing




    In honor of Nancy Cox, the Nevada Yacht Club holds an annual Women-in-Sailing regatta. Details for this year's regattato follow.

    Nancy was born in 1958 in Lansing Michigan. She lived in Las Vegas for 32 years and was an avid sailor participating in the many club events of the Lake Mead Sailing Club. She owned a Cal 29 named Soul Mate. Nancy continued to sail throughout her cancer treatments. A testament to her spirit, and I am guessing sense of humor and irony, in the announcement for her celebration of life, her LMSC friends wrote of Nancy: “Loved by everyone, trusted by most, cherished by all.” A memorial was placed on the top of Boulder Island to quote “create a place for her to watch over us each and every day as we sail.”
