Do you ever wake up in the morning, look out your window and see the swans getting ready for their day? It happens each morning on Westlake Lake. Here at the Westlake Yacht Club, you might want to sit on the deck some evening with that special someone and take in the beautiful sunset. It’s a great way to unwind from a busy day at your desk.

Many members at the club travel the world: going on safari in South Africa, enjoying reciprocity privileges with the Royal Singapore Yacht club or the Royal Cape Yacht Club in South Africa or doing a jungle cruise on the Amazon. A very popular pastime at the club is just checking in and getting caught up on the week. Imagine hearing about someone’s travels, discussing a new tech industry pioneered by a club member or hearing how the kayak fleet won the trophy for most creative float again this year at the holiday Parade of Lights.

About Membership

Are You Interested in Sailing?

Have you ever been out on the Lake? We’d love to teach you how to sail. We offer adult and junior sailing lessons, for a fee, so you can then qualify to take out a boat anytime... all part of your membership benefits. Also, your children or grandchildren can learn how to sail. We have a very successful Summer Sailing Academy for young sailors led by certified instructors. Students in our classes end up loving to sail and, after a week or two, compete in races. We have a full season of regattas in which all age levels compete with and get to know sailors from other clubs. 

How About Kayaking?

We have a whole rack of kayaks and, once you join the fleet, we will teach you how to paddle. If you are out early in the morning when the lake is still, you may see the swans or be greeted by an incoming flock of Canada Geese. Kayakers party together too. We have kayak fleet gourmet dinners at members’ homes. Come and join us.

Would You Like to Dance?

We have our own house band, Around the Sound, that performs throughout the year.  Also, there are numerous caterers, orchestras and performers at special events like our Sweetheart’s Ball, the formal Commodore’s Ball, our annual Luau and Lobster Fest. We periodically have dances with live music at our weekly Friday socials. 

 

 

Renting the Club

The Westlake Yacht Club is also a place to enjoy life, make new friends, and have a new home away from home on the water. Check out our social schedule, access to boats and our member’s stories. We offer a substantial discount to regular members for renting the club house for weddings, company parties or family celebrations.  We will be happy to have you talk with our Catering Sales Manager.

Membership

Westlake Yacht Club is a great value all the members of your family will enjoy!

Please contact our Membership Chair Cheri Bland for information about the club via our Contact Form or by calling the Club at (818) 889-4820.  Or, if you prefer, drop by the club house any Friday evening and pick up a brochure. On Friday nights and Sunday Regattas there is always someone there to talk to about membership.
