Welcome to the Clear Lake Yacht Club Website
The club has closed for the season.  Despite the Covid-19 setbacks, the club had a successful year.  Discussions are already underway for next year which include the return of some traditional TGIF dinners mixed with food trucks and sponsored evenings, variations on the entertainment, more ski club events, sailing school camps, tennis camps and possibly a ski school camp. 

The new bathroom construction is getting underway and should be completed this winter.  Thank you to all who donated towards this very needed project.
The latest issue of the WindWord can be found in the documents section.

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.

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.

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!
