For almost 40 years, sailors in the Manhattan area have been organized in the Blue Valley Yacht Club (BVYC). BVYC has moorings for keel boats, a fenced dinghy park for smaller boats, a private boat ramp, a lift, a hoist for stepping masts, and a picnic shelter.
Numerous young people have begun sailing as a result of their membership in the Kansas State University Sailing Club which is a member of the BVYC. Since promoting sailing is a goal of our club, we gladly provide facilities and assistance to the KSU sailors.
A recent endeavor of the Yacht Club is sponsoring Sea Scout Ship 5074. The Ship was organized in 2000; it is open to both boys and girls of the age 14 through 20. Due to the generosity of local community members, the Ship owns 6 sail boats ranging in size from Sunfish to a Ranger 26.
