SLTWYC - South Lake Tahoe Windjammers Yacht Club

We have been very busy planning a fun filled year of social activities for the SLTWYC.  

I have attached a Tentative Schedule for you to see.
You will note some "?" next to some items especially Beer Can Happy Hours.  We had hoped to do these every Wednesday from Mid-June through early September.  However unless more of you will volunteer to help with these events we may have to drop back to every other Wednesday night.
Remember a club is only as good as its members and we need a little help from all of you to make our club a success.
Some events to put on your calendar in the next few months.  More information on all to follow
  • Saturday March 21 St. Patrick's Day - John & Carol Gerard are again preparing a wonderful Corned Beef & Cabbage Dinner.  
  • Saturday April 4 - Ross's Delicious Chowder Feed & Amnesty Night to pay your dues.
  • Saturday April 25 & Sunday April 26 - Opening Day on the Bay.  This is a Very Fun Getaway Weekend.  We start on Saturday evening with a lovely Cocktail Party hosted by Jim & Carol Crecelius in their beautiful condo over Ghirardelli Square with a view of San Francisco Bay.  On Sunday we board the Commodore Cruise Vessel, Cabernet Sauvignon for a 5 hour cruise on the Bay.  We board the vessel at Mariner Square in Alameda.   The trip includes a Continental Breakfast, a sit-down lunch and a front row seat for the Decorated Boat Parade. Cost is $85 Adults/$40 Children.  We can reserve a table for 8 for $655.   Suggestions for accommodations can be in San Francisco, Alameda or Oakland.  We stay at the Hawthorn Suites in Alameda which is very convenient to Mariner Square. See the attached flyer for more information or contact Linda at This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you are thinking of joining us please let me know.
  • Saturday June 13 - SLTWYC Nautical Swap Meet - As you all know we have been trying to raise money to help support our club & we are hoping that this event may help us do this.  This would take place in the parking lot in front of the Yacht Club.  We all have nautical items that we would like to rid ourselves of. These can include anything from boat items, clothing, jewelry, knickknacks, up to & including motors, dingeys and even boats.   If you have a lot to sell you may want to rent a space (price TBD) &  percentage to be given to the club.  Or you could donate your items to the club sale & let the club reap the benefits. The Yacht Club & Bar will be open.  As quite a bit of help will be needed both getting ready for this event & the day of the event, this is a great time to see what you can do to help our club. 
The 2020 PICYA Yachting Yearbook will be coming out in the next few months.  This yearbook is a great resource for those of you who would like to just know more about the Northern California Yacht Clubs or like to travel and visit other Yacht clubs.  It offers location & contact information about all participating Yacht Clubs in the area.  
Price of these books is $15.  Let Linda know if you are interested in buying a book. 
If you are going to visit another club it is always good to contact them first to be sure they have not restrictions about other club members visiting.  Although most clubs welcome other Yacht Club members it is the prerogative of each club to make their own rules.
If you are interested in helping in any way with any of our activities please let me know.
