Nevada Yacht Club

The Nevada Yacht Club (NYC) was formed in 1963 with its foremost purpose being the encouragement of sailing as a sport and recreational activity. The NYC promotes sailing, boating and seamanship through semi-annual sail training, and an active racing schedule.

Meetings are held on the third Friday of every month with the exception of November and December. Meetings start at 7:30pm. Most meetings are held at the Lake Mead Marina, although some are held at the Water Safety Building at Lake Mead. Check out the calendar to find the next meeting date and location.

Most Nevada Yacht Club events are based out of the Lake Mead Marina as this is where most members keep their boats. Skipper’s meetings are usually held on the patio before races. NYC races are open to all (members enjoy discounted entry fees). We encourage anyone interested to come to a general meeting to meet the membership or show up to a skipper’s meeting to get in on the racing action. Most of the time walk ons are welcome as crew and if all of the boats are full the Race Committee can always use the help.


Membership is open to anyone who would like to join the Nevada Yacht Club. Dues are $200 per calendar year with a one time $25 initiation fee. The yearly dues will be pro rated for those that join later in the year. Members benefits include reciprocal privileges with other SCYA clubs, discounted fees on NYC races and events and voting rights in the club among others.
