 Rules and Guidelines of the Lake Wissota Yacht Club

LWYC Board of Directors

    1. LWYC Membership paid in full by March 15th will reserve the mooring used by the member in the prior year. Refer to LWYC Mooring Guidelines for specifics on annual renewal procedures for moorings, mooring transfer list, and mooring waiting list.

    2. Members may not launch their boats from the Club or tie to a mooring until full membership is paid.

    3. A full membership is required to store a boat or trailer at the Club.

    4. Members’ boats that are stored on Club property must be on a trailer that can be easily moved.

    5. Boat trailers on LWYC property must be identified with the owner’s name clearly visible on the tongue/draw bar of the trailer.

    6. The launching ramp dock is intended for sail boat loading and unloading only. Boats are not to be left tied to the dock unattended.

    7. Member-owned dinghies must be stored on the dinghy rack. Overall length of the dinghy must be 10 feet or less. Dinghies may not be stored on the lawn or beach.

    8. Club owned dinghies are to be returned to the beach as soon as possible. They are not to be left tied to a mooring unless there is at least one functional dingy left on the shore. When you are the last to use a dinghy, please pull it very high on the beach, then turn it over and store the oars and life jackets in the wooden beach box.

    9. The lower lot is for dry sailboats on trailers only. Vehicles are only allowed in the lower lot when loading and unloading boats.

    10. LWYC prefers that each member stores their unloaded trailer off the Club premises while member’s boat is on a mooring. However, if there is no other reasonable option, Club member may store it in the upper parking lot area for an additional fee.

    11. Swimming is allowed, however, there is no lifeguard on duty at the LWYC. Children must be accompanied by an adult Club member.

    12. Dogs must be on a leash and under control at all times. Pet owners are responsible for picking up and disposing of dog feces.

    13. Clean up after yourself! The kitchen, bathroom, cooking grills, picnic tables, etc. are the responsibility of all those who use them.

    14. Please separate aluminum cans, plastic, and glass bottles for recycling.

    15. Guests are welcome at the LWYC when accompanied by Club members. In consideration of the interests and pleasure of other members, please use discretion regarding the number of guests you invite.

    16. The General Rule is “PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS!” Let’s go sailing!!!
