Johnson Lake Yacht Club

The Johnson Lake Yacht Club is a nonprofit organization based in Central Nebraska. Our primary goal of the Johnson Lake Yacht Club is to promote all forms of the sport of sailing in Central Nebraska.

We are not however, just a "local" yacht club. We sponsor events as far away as South Dakota and our members participate in regional events promoted by other sailing clubs.

Our current members reside in both Kansas and Nebraska including the Lincoln-Omaha area.

Some of the sailing activities members participate in include racing, cruising, and recreational sailing. We are a family oriented organization, our activities are designed to include the entire family.

You do not even need to own a yacht (or any boat for that matter) to join. We encourage all who are interested in sailing, or recreational boating, to join our club.

Johnson Lake is a manmade water storage reservoir located in South Central Nebraska. It is managed by Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District.

Being just over two thousand surface acres in size, Johnson Lake is a recreational hot spot for Central Nebraska residents. Water Skiing, swimming, fishing, and sailing are just some of the activities that take place on Johnson Lake. In addition to recreation, a few hundred people live year ''round in homes built on the lake''s shores and many more people have summer homes or cabins here.

Among other developments around the lake are four eating establishments, three convenience stores, two state recreation areas, two full service resorts, a golf course, go-carts, several home based businesses, and a scenic country chapel. This is the home of the Johnson Lake Yacht Club. June 1997 marked the 30th anniversary of our first regatta. The Johnson Lake Yacht Club would like to share in this great milestone by welcoming you to our on line home. We hope you will find this website informative and entertaining
