DLYC is closed for the 2015 season!


The 75th anniversary season of DLYC has come to a close.

We had a wonderful year of special memories including our 75th anniversary gala, youth programs, tiki parties, auxiliary events, outdoor movie night, chili-cookbook, fish boil, steak fry, sailing and the regatta and the final shipwreck party.

Thank you to all of our anniversary year sponsors and to the members and DLYC employees who served us so well this past summer. We hope to see many of you through the winter and back at the club in late April.

Until then…

Fleet News


JUNE – 2015

All Clubs boats have been launched and are available for this summer’s sailing classes.  Geoff Moehl assisted by Doug Tagold will first conduct a training class for the trainers, then begin classes for our youth.  The weather may give us some problems at the start.  Rain and thunderstorms are forecast for this entire first week.

May 31st:  The first “Stay-at-Home” Series races were cancelled due to weather.  Our sailors are hardy souls, but no one was willing to brave 58 degrees, misty rain, and 25 knots of wind.

Jun 7th:  The “Summer” series races began this day.  The wind proved to be challenging with gusts to near 20 knots, but it did not stop Doug Tagsold from putting in the best performance with two first place finishes in 3 races.  Ryan Mabie with his sister and girlfriend as crew came in a close second with three second place finishes.  Following these races, the Fleet Awards for the 2014 Season were presented.  The awards and the recipients are listed on the following page.

Jun 14th:  In this second entry of the “Summer” series, Geoff Moehl finished his first race of this season placing first.  He only had one crewmember instead of the normal two and it was this only crewmember’s first time ever on a Lightning.  Also, Geoff was recovering from a leg injury he suffered on the previous weekend when he fell off the dock while servicing the club Lightning.

Bill Rogge is still unable to participate in any races since he injured his leg in a fall during the Spring.  He plans to participate in the 4th of July series.  We look forward to his return then.
