The Pewaukee Yacht Club (PYC) is a fun and friendly yacht club that enjoys the sport of sailing. Our focus is to provide sailing opportunities and competitive racing to youth and adults of all levels. The PYC actively promotes and supports sailboat racing. A full schedule of races is set up each year, through our volunteer, well-trained race committees. Competition is held primarily on the weekends, but our members also enjoy the weekday Twilight Series.
The sailing program is focused on sailboats referred to as “Inland Scows”. Scows are flat-bottomed sailboats without a permanent keel. They range from the largest scow, the 6-man A scow at 38 feet long, to the 2 man youth X Boat, which is 16 feet long for youth 16 years old and under. The other sanctioned fleets include C, E, M, MC, and M15. There is also Optimist, Laser and 420 racing.
Because of its size, Pewaukee Lake offers one of the finest sailing venues in Southeastern Wisconsin. Coupled with the facilities and hospitality that the PYC brings, we regularly host several major regattas each season. Regattas bring sailing competitors together from across the country to race against each other. The PYC has established a national reputation for providing first class racing and unbeatable hospitality that only our spirit of volunteerism can bring.
