Welcome to Nagawicka Lake Yacht Club! New Members welcome who share an interest in sailing or learning the skill of race management.
Nagawicka Lake Yacht Club was established in 1895 exclusively for sailboats. We are based on the shore of Nagawicka Lake in Delafield, Wisconsin with a quaint lake-side club house. The club has an active membership that are involved in sailing for pleasure and competition, with a racing program that has over 80 races scheduled each season. Our club races OPTI, X Boat, MC Scow, C Scow and E Scow. A range of instructional programs are offered to both adults and children and for the experienced or novice sailor. The atmosphere is friendly and informal. Today, the fine facilities, excellent racing program, and frequent club social activities combine to offer a wholesome family experience.
Nagawicka Sailors Compete in Local Regattas
Lots of exciting sailing for Nagawicka this week! Early in the week Lake Geneva had it's Dingyfest. 3 of our X fleet went, with Alex Keck finishing 13th, Myles Murphy in 35th and Carson Heinze in 46th. There was big wind at the Dingyfest for the Opti fleet, but Henry Chapman sailed through it to a first place. Other Nagawicka sailors who braved the wind were Lindsey McClean (25), Mary-Grace Hegberg (26) and David Hegberg (29). Over the weekend, Henry Chapman placed first at the USODA Team trials in Sheboygan and his sister Olivarose came in 15 out of 58 boats! Toby Lux won his first regatta at the TRAC (Training Regatta at Cedar), with Marissa Tegeder sailing a 6th and Maddie Crucius a 9th in the Blue fleet. And our home boy Ryan Grosch came in 4th at the MC Invite in Okoboji. Go Team Nag!
