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, 420's, 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.

Thanks to the generosity of NLYC members at our Winter Bowling Party at the New Berlin Ale House we were able to raise enough money to fund a scholarship for our sailing school! This will be offered to community members to help grow the love of sailing in Lake Country. A big thanks to the sponsors for our Silent Auction: Aquarius Sail, New Berlin Ale House, Weissgerbers, The Krauska family, The Gruenke Family, The Murphy Family, Peter Keck, and the NLYC Board, who contributed 2 wonderful gift card baskets!
