DLYC Opening Date


The Devils Lake Yacht Club will open for its 75th Anniversary Season on Friday, April 24th. Manager Steve Gongola will be on-site beginning in April to prepare the club for this special year. The dock installers will begin putting in the dock as soon as the weather breaks.

As a matter of housekeeping, all room and boat slips must be secured for the 2015 season in order to begin working through any vacancies that can be offered to current members on the wait list and to prospective members.

WeddingWe seem to have a lot of interest in special events, weddings and reunions indicating that we are going to have a festive summer in addition to our DLYC events. If there is a special event in your future, please let us know how we can make it a memorable one for you and your guests.

Our email address is DLYCOffice@gmail.com if you have questions or need information.

See you at the lake!
