Welcome to the Clear Lake Yacht Club
Club Express website
We are excited to present the new portal for the Clear Lake Yacht Club. On this site, you will be able to join the club, follow the club events, see the member directory and much more. Please bear with us as we develop the site.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Board of Directors have decided to cancel all planned activities through June. Because of this, the board also decided to reduce the membership fees by 50% through the end of June. The calendar will be updated as activities are determined. Sailors and Tennis club members should contact their respective club chairman for updates.
Clear Lake Yacht Club Member Information
Please read - There have been updates and clarifications
The Yacht Club is a wonderful amenity that we all share, an extension of our collective front yards and living rooms here on Clear Lake. In fact, the Yacht Club should be the first stop on any tour of the lake.
The CLYC Bylaws charge the Board with establishing policies to govern membership and the use of the club by members and guests. Please review the information below which is meant to clarify how we operate as a club and what the state requires of us.
BAR - MEMBER AND GUEST POLICIES
Mandated by the State of Indiana and the CLYC Bylaws. Are as follows but not limited to:
1. We have a “Club Permit”, which means we are a private social club.
2. Current Paid Members ONLY may purchase alcohol.
3. Non-members must be accompanied by a member and sign the guest book. Guests may not purchase alcohol except on guest permitted days which requires a special state permit.
4. All club rentals require a “guest day” permit
5. When bar is open, outside alcohol is prohibited from the Club property and building – All alcohol must be purchased at the bar.
6. The bartender must be properly licensed and be aware of the private club rules
7. Bartenders reserve the right to refuse service
8. No personal cups are allowed after 9:00 p.m.
GUEST REGISTRY - Explained
We are required by the state to maintain a guest register. When bringing a guest to the club, the sponsoring member must add the guest’s name to the register on each day the guest is at the club.
That being said, the frequency that a guest is invited to the club by a current member will be left to the discretion of each member. If you find a friend or family member accompanying you to club events more than a couple weekends a season, maybe a new membership is in order!
