Lake Mohawk Yacht Club invites all LMCC Members to join us as we sail on beautiful Lake Mohawk. Members who qualify can utilize our club boats at their leisure, compete with other sailors on Sundays during the race season, and also enjoy many on-shore social events. Owning a boat is not required and we welcome those who simply want to crew, assist in Race Committee duties or just be a spectator. Please browse this website for more information.

LMYC is sad to announce the passing of our dear friend Don Okner.
Don was a long-time Yacht Club member, Commodore (1993), Lightning sailor, and Papoose story-teller. Our thoughts go out to Madeleine and his family.
The remembrance service for Don is Thurs. Aug. 24 at 10a.m. at St. Kateri Church.

2022 Commodore's Cup
(the race was abandoned early due to an approaching storm but we all had fun anyway!). See 'VIDEOS' page for more.

The race was conducted by the Sunfish Fleet Chair Shirley Miller. The Miners were the only boat to cross the line before the race had to be abandoned. Consolation prizes for effort were awarded to John Trela (2nd place) and Alex Fox (3rd place).
The post-race Awards Party was graciously hosted by the Miners at their home. Thank you to Commodore Gail and Skipper Rich.
Thanks also to Shirley for making the unique tote bag awards.
