The primary purpose of the Klamath Yacht Club shall be to further the interests of boating on Upper Klamath Lake, to promote the physical, cultural, and social interest of its members, to establish and maintain a clubhouse and facilities, to improve navigation on Upper Klamath Lake for the use and benefit of its members and the general public.
KLAMATH YACHT CLUB is located on the shore of Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon’s largest. Upper Klamath Lake boasts a beautiful mountain setting, but the nearby low hillsides channel the winds for fairly steady sailing conditions. Average wind speeds of 8-15 knots make Upper Klamath Lake a great place to sail and race. KLAMATH YACHT CLUB is home to keelboats, catamarans, trimarans, Walker Bay dinghies, centerboards, sailboards and powerboats.
The fifty square miles of water offer more than enough sailing room. From anywhere on the lake, you can fish, watch eagles and pelicans, spend the entire day sailing and return to home port or anchor in a protected bay for overnight camping. The lack of city lights in the upper lake provide for excellent star gazing conditions.
