ABOUT THE CLUB
Pigeon Lake Yacht Club was founded in 1978 to foster good sailing in the area, and to establish a venue for sailors to sail together, both competitively and for fun, as well as to participate in social events. Our fleets consist mostly of keel boats and scows.
What’s a scow? Imagine a windsurfer with interior space. The wide and flat hull of a scow can skim across the water quickly – very quickly, depending on conditions. Though these boats are quite stable, you may well get wet! The M 16 fleet races every Wednesday evening, but you may occasionally see an A Scow (20 ft) or an E Scow (28 ft) out on the lake.
Keel boats are larger and heavier, and most are meant for comfortable cruising. Several times a year we race these boats too. Keelboats are ‘handicapped’ to assure fair competition. The maximum length of a keel boat allowed moorage space for the season is 27 feet.
JOIN OUR CLUB
Open the door to sailing and social activities as well as dry sailing (scow storage) or keel boat dock slips. Members sail their boats and enjoy the use of our well equipped clubhouse at any time. For those who enjoy a competitive edge, we have activities for scows and keelboats on a summer schedule.
