ABOUT LAKE LANIER SAILING CLUB

(1 sheet, double-sided, 4.7MB)

Lake Lanier Sailing Club, Inc. is a private, family oriented club that is involved in all aspects of the sport of sailing with a special emphasis on racing. The Club is located on a beautiful lake-front compound near Flowery Branch, Georgia, with a large clubhouse, campground, beach, bathing facilities, 88 wet slips, and dry storage facilities that accommodate more than 200 trailered boats. Members compete in numerous One-Design, Portsmouth / Dinghy and Auxiliary / PHRF fleets at local, regional and national levels.

We also have a very active Junior Sailing program, organized as a 501(c)(3) corporation, and we are proud to host the Georgia Tech Sailing Club and the University of Georgia Sailing Club to promote the sport in college students. We are affiliated with US Sailing (USS), South Atlantic Yacht Racing Association (SAYRA) and Dixie Inland Yacht Racing Association (DIYRA).

The Club was founded in 1959, shortly after Lake Lanier was filled, and first occupied a parcel of land near Holiday Marina where members constructed a launching ramp and boat repair shed. The Club's present location, near Flowery Branch, Georgia, was acquired in 1960, and is located on land which is partly owned by the Club and partly leased from the Army Corp of Engineers. Club members and their families cleared the land and constructed the initial facilities consisting of a boat storage area and ramp.

The Clubhouse or pavilion was constructed mainly by Club members between 1963 and 1967. Since then it and other facilities have gradually been improved. We have two paved boat ramps, paved boat storage and parking areas, five auxiliary sailboat docks, four for small boats launching, race committee shack, work area, camping area and swimming beach.

The Activities of Lake Lanier Sailing Club have traditionally been organized and carried out by the members and their families. The Club does not have a large staff, and in fact has only one full time employee. Successful operation of the Club therefore requires member participation. A new member of the Club should expect to be asked to assist with Club activities such as regatta management, race committee, social affairs and work parties.

For more information regarding membership, please visit the Membership Inquiries page. We'd love to hear from you!

Want to see more? Visit Vimeo.com and see a brief (7 & 1/2 minutes) video that TVgwinett shot. It's a great introduction to some Club members and shows just how much fun we have sailing and socializing. And there's a great "first-person" video from Thomas Oliver at filmmakersinc.com sailing his Catalina 22 in a Fall Series race on the Lake online as well (runs about 15 minutes) - a great look at how you can have fun without being a hardcore racer.
